Welcome to Elm Class
Hi! We are Elm Class.
Mrs Mills, Mrs Matthews, Mrs Cooke and Mrs Davies all work in Elm Class.
Our email address is checked weekly email@example.com so feel free to email or phone the school if you need a speedier response.
We will have PE on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so please ensure your child has their kit in school everyday. It can just stay on their own peg ready to go.
Reading books will be needed in school on Mondays and Thursdays. they will only be changed twice a week. Please re-read the book for fluency and pleasure but feel free to supplement any reading with books from home, comics, magazines and library books. Our aim is to read 5 times per week.
We will also have spellings to work on, Reading Eggs and Mathletics to take part in at home and challenge our brains each day.
What have we been doing so far?
We have been looking at the book The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark by Jill Tomlinson. We ahve learnt lots about owls and their appearance. Soon we will start to look at how they move and what they eat.
On Monday 20th September 2021 we are having the falconry lady- called Fiona- in to show us some birds and give us more information. Check back the exciting photos!

In Year 2 this year we have started with learning both inside and outside the classroom. We have our main teaching inputs in each subject- like Maths, Reading, Writing or Science- and then we add our learning challenges to show what we have learnt independently.The slowly we will change to work on all of the areas of the curriculum in a more formal way. However, it will still be lots of fun!
Spellings are a weekly occurrence in Y2. Each week your child will receive their spellings to practice throughout the week. Each Friday we will have a spelling check and this will be fed into the learning based on the results. Each child will be asked to learn their spellings and there are many ways you can do this.
It was super exciting to have Fiona visit from the Falconry centre. Obviously, we are working hard on our learning all about habitats, lifecycles and woodlands. We have been focusing our learning on Owls so it was marvellous to see the different types, variety of sizes and habitats.
Did you know the smallest owl is only 25cms tall and is called the Little Owl?
It is the most prolific species in the U.K and nests in stone walls and tree holes but does not make a physical nest. It finds pre-made spaces which will keep its eggs warm and dry.
Can you spot the Little Owl in the photos? Have a careful look.
