Welcome to Elm class
Welcome to the brand new Elm Class webpage. On our webpage will be a variety of information and links to support you throughout the school year including our class newsletter, learning links and Elm Class updates.
As mentioned in the Elm Class newsletter this term’s topic is ‘Folklore and Fairy tales’ and we will be exploring a variety of stories and rhymes through a range of fun and engaging activities. PE will take place on a Friday morning and Show and Tell will take place on a Friday afternoon. Show and Tell is an opportunity for children to bring to school items of interest or talents and skills that the children would like to share with their friends.
Our first week
We had an amazing first week filled with lots of fun. Here are a few photos to show you just a few of the thing we got up to.
Learning at home
As well as exploring and play our learning is in full swing in both maths and Read Write Inc. Below are a variety of learning links to support both you and your child in their learning at home.
Please follow the Read Write Inc Facebook page titled ‘Ruth Miskin Training’ to keep up with the latest Read Write Inc news.
Here is a great link provided by the team at Read Write Inc team to support parents with Read Write Inc at home.
Many children enjoy time on tablets and ipads. To get your child writing at home download handwriting apps to support your child with their letter and number formation. Encourage your child to use a stylus pen to help your child with their pencil grip and pencil control.
We love to use engaging and fun online games in maths. Here is a great link to a webpage that provides a huge range of games for all areas of maths including, counting, measurement and shape.
We have been using songs to help us count confidently to 20. Follow this link at home and get counting.
