Welcome to Elm Class!
As the children enter Keystage Two there is an emphasis on them becoming more responsible and independent. At all times in Elm Class we promote a supportive and happy environment for this to happen. We challenge the children to reach their full potential whilst having a happy and fun attitude.
Please find details of our daily routine and the requirements for each day.
It is essential for the children to be ready for learning when they arrive at school. Each morning the children need to have with them:
The children will have two sessions of PE each week. All children are expected to take part every week and must have their PE kit in school at all times. We will do outdoor PE on the field unless the weather makes this impossible, so please ensure children have warm clothes and footwear suitable for wet and muddy conditions. If your child does any before/after school sports clubs can we suggest that they have a separate kit for those so that their PE kit can remain in school for PE lessons. If your child is not able to take part in PE due to injury, please ensure you send a note stating this to Mrs Draper.
Early Morning Work
Each morning the children are set a task to complete during registration. This can range from Handwriting, Spelling practise, independent reading, word search, maths reasoning and problem solving and English brain teasers. This gets the children's brain ready and active for the days learning!
Each week on a Tuesday, the children will have a set of spellings to learn and to write a sentence using that word. Additionally they will have a homework task linked to the topic. The homework will be due in the following Monday and the spellings tested at that time.
Each term there will be a project homework which will encourage the children to take ownership of their own learning. They will choose an aspect of the topic that interests them and then produce a project, presented in way they choose.
I am happy to see parents by appointment to discuss matters arising in class. If you have any queries or concerns/questions about your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to come and see me, before or after school.
