Elm Class

Welcome from Miss Winn, Mrs Dixon and all the Year 4 and 5 pupils of Elm Class.

We have had a great year so far and are ready for the summer term. The children have come back to school very keen and ready to learn.

  

What are we up to?

We are excited to up date you with what is going on in Elm class this term. Watch this space for updates!

Maths Measuring 

The children have been working on measuring a route around the school and mapping it out on to squared paper as they go. They have been using a key to scale down their walks. They have been challenged to create a walk that is either 1/4 of a KM, 1/2 of a KM or a full KM. 

Instructions

We have been working hard on the unit of instructions in literacy. We looked at the features and what makes instructions good. We analysed instructions in depth, noting what made them successful and clear. The children then wrote instructions for each other & we then followed a set of instructions on making fairy cakes. The results where yummy! Miss Addison and Miss Newton even judged our baking in a 'Bake off Style' - what great fun!

Labyrinth Church Visit

Year 4, 5 and 6 where invited along to church to experience the Prayer Labyrinth. The children learnt that a labyrinth is a way to help us think and pray about the journey we are on in out lives. It is an ancient way to be calm and quiet to think about the things that re important to us, one another, our wider world and God. 

 

The children also had the opportunity to write prayers. 

All about me...

The children have made posters to tell us about themselves. We are really interested to know more of what they do at home. We'd love for them to bring in things from home to add to our display.
