Elm

 

Welcome to Elm Class 

 

Elm Class is the upper class of Key Stage 3. Class 7 has 11 pupils and 5 adults. Caroline is our teacher and we also have 4 teaching assistants called, Phil, Debbie, Carly and Becky. 

We are a very responsible class and as a team we decide on our class rules. This then ensures we follow our rules and help others to follow them too! We earn raffle tickets, stickers, dojos and the treat box as rewards and are often seen or heard talking about our fantastic behaviour.

We love to learn in Elm Class and we really like the varied and exciting curriculum. 

At times Caroline sets us our homework on a Friday and we have a week to complete it. Our homework could be reading or a piece of work that will extend the learning we have completed in class that week. 

We earn class dojos and raffle tickets, if we work hard and complete our work on time and can exchange those reward points for prizes. 

We hope you enjoy looking at our web page. If you would like to leave some feedback please do so, because we are always wanting to improve what we do! 

 

 
Class Dojo  
Sharing the greatness!
 
We use Class Dojo as part of a whole school reward system, we link with parents in all classes to share the great activities and learning that happens in each class. Images and work can be shared from parents and from the children in class and the system is a safe platform to share pupil's work, as only their parents can see their child's images or work. 
WOW days: 
On our Wow days, we can raise money for charity or link with national and world wide events, such as World Book Day, health and wellbeing weeks, Red nose day and other events that mean a lot to others in society. 
Core subject areas: 
English
In English we are focusing on information texts
We will be creating our own information leaflets to help others to become more mindful and will be creating leaflets showing how to care for plants, animals and our local environment
The pupils have created their own information leaflets 
Helpful links for English 
In maths we are focussing on Fractions, time and measure, this links to length, perimeter, area and mass. 
Please find links below to support our learning, including interactive games.
 
 
Emotional health and wellbeing activities, these will remain on the webpage as are the most important part of your child's development. 
PSHCE 
In PSHCE we are learning all about living in the wider world and will be looking at our strengths, our similarities and our differences. We will be reflecting on our feelings and how we, as a community can help others. This links to previous learning so I have also kept our relationships links here just in case your children require it. 
 
Physical activity and wellbeing: 
Elm Class Information: 
Long term and current learning links, educational pathways and class time table   
Our reading offer 
Sensory Sessions 
Linked to communication and wellbeing 
Foundations subject areas. 
In ICT we are continuing with emails and are also working on coding, so I have kept the being safe and respectful online resources on here too, as I feel your child will need to recap, ( as we do in class) each half term).
 
Music sessions 
 Science
In Science we are learning about Plants, photosynthesis, life cycles and interdependence
 
Topic Learning 
In our Topic learning we link the National Curriculum expectations in History and Geography, we complete different topics each term that enable us to learn in a cross curricular approach. 
This term we are learning about our local area. We will be spending time in different places on our community and identify why what we love about our community, we will create our own maps using grid reference and will use map keys to help identify the places of interest in our area. We will then create information leaflets to provide our community with places to visit when out and about.  
Our topic work links heavily with our English work so resources for both topic and English can help your child achieve their learning goals.
