Welcome to Elm Class

In our class we have 1 girl and 5 boys

 

Summer A

This half term our theme is 'Human Settlements'

The children have worked so hard in all areas. During Maths we have been learning about shape. We have listened to the 'Square House' song and used our choose boards to select which shape we can see.

In English we have been reading a new sensory story called 'Busy Town', the children have been recalling information and answered lots of questions about the story.

In our theme lessons we have been working hard on our targets

During food technology we have been stirring foods, assisting making sandwiches and tasting,smelling and touching a range of ingredients.

In Music with Kenton we have been working on taking turns, playing instruments when requested and singing along to songs.

In outdoor learning we have been naming objects outside using choose boards to say what we can see. On the lovely sunshing days we have been working on our physical skills outdoors using the balancing planks and relaxing in the hammock.

As you can see we have been very busy this half term, and our teachers are so proud of how much our communication is improving and our super behaviour!

Thank you to all of our parents for all of your support this half term

Sophie, Ana, Sian

 

Spring B

This half term our theme is 'Water'

Thank goodness for the sunny days because this half term was very wet! Our sensory story this half term is 'Rainbow Fish' the children have interacted so well with the props. 

During Maths we have been working on number and matching.

In Theme we have worked so hard in science mixing colours.

The children put different coloured paints into a mixing jug and experimented with what colours to mix.

 

Spring A

This half term our theme is 'The Romans'

The children have been learning all about Roman times, they enjoyed a visit from a real Roman! We looked at artefacts, role played as a Roman and even squashed grapes with our feet to make wine! 

 

Autumn B

This half term our theme is 'Cities In The Uk'

Each week we are using our imagination to travel to different cities such as Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and not forgetting Manchester!

Check out our gallery's to see what we have been getting up to.

 

Autumn A

This half term our theme has been 'The Stone Age'. The children have enjoyed reading the story 'Cave Baby' and learning all about the characters. In Maths we have been focusing on shape and filling and pouring. 

In Art we have been splatter painting.. Everything!! We filled up squirty bottles with diluted paint and the children shook them up to mix it, then they squirted the paint onto the wall to create a splatter effect. We also did some cave painting after looking at some examples. 

On Fridays we go to dance to practise our gross motor skills and listening/following instructions. Our favourite song in our dance session is 'Cave Man Dave' Here is the link if you would like to listen with your child at home 

'Cave Man Dave Song'

We made some beautiful plates and spoons for our enterprise fair
