Welcome to Elm Class



With the introduction of the new topic, 'Night and Day', a cave was constructed in Elm Class. The children loved using their new cave as a place to improve their mark-making!

Elm Class looked at the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy, they then went outside to see if they could create their own Goldsworthy inspired art pieces themselves.

Elm Class loved making their own 'Pumpkin Soup' in their play using the orange lentils, mini saucepans and spoons. They retold the story of 'Pumpkin Soup' that we had read at the beginning of the week.

Elm Class loved reading the story 'Pumpkin Soup', so we decided to explore and carve some pumpkins of our own!

In Elm Class we have been learning about internet safety. We even learnt a song to help us remember how to be safe when we are using technology.

Elm Class have been reinforcing their phonics and number learning through fun in the water tray - finding coloured balls and trying to blow them back into the water!

Elm Class have been putting music to nursery rhymes, thinking about what instruments would work best for 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'.

Elm Class have been investigating technology. They have been using the Interactive White Board working out how to create patterns, write letters and change colours.

Elm Class have been practising their mark-making by making some crowns.

Elm Class have been exploring patterns in maths. After creating their own patterns with resources in the classroom, Elm Class went outside to see what patterns they could find in nature.

The children in Elm Class made an obstacle course outside. They enjoyed experimenting with different ways of moving and welcoming their friends to come and play too.

Elm Class have been exploring natural objects. They were looking closely at the different features and seeing what numbers they could find hidden within the tray.

There were some special arrivals in Elm Class today, some little 'Alien Quiet Creatures'. Elm Class were very kind and wondered if the aliens wanted to return home so worked hard to build them some space rockets so they could fly back to their home land!

Elm Class have been attending assembly, they are listening really well, sitting beautifully and are loving singing with the other children!

Elm Class have settled in really well - they are enjoying exploring their new classroom.
