Spring Term 2019

This half term Elm Class have worked hard to develop their ICT skills, we created our very own presentations on Keynote to show our understanding of The Creation Story. We learnt how to insert images, change the colour of text boxes and change font size! In Literacy we have been doing lots of acting and can now use a range of punctuation including speech marks. In Maths we have been focusing on division, multiplication and properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Hampton Court Palace where we learnt lots about our current History topic of Kings and Queens.

Summer Term 2018

With SATs in full swing Elm Class have been practising some Mindfulness at least once a day. The children are taught to focus on their breathing (in through the nose and out through the mouth), making their body feel heavy and relaxed and letting their worries arrive at the train station and then swiftly leaving on the next train.
