Miss Biggerstaff and Mrs Kimpton
This week we have had a World War 1 focus to celebrate Armistice Day. The children designed and created their own medals, made poppies and found out about the special jobs that different animals had during WW1.
In maths, we have been looking at grouping objects to prepare us for moving on to multiplication. The children sorted concrete objects into groups, including 2s, 5s and 10s.
The Nut Tree - Julia Donaldson
This week we have been practising a poem by Julia Donaldson called The Nut Tree. The children worked really hard to memorise the poem. They projected their voices and practised some actions to go with the poem!

Beeline Festival 2018
We really enjoyed our trip to the University of Worcester on Wednesday for the Beeline Storytelling Festival. Our first session was with an author in the storytelling yurt and the children enjoyed the story of 'The Magic Pot'. Then we had a look around the Royal Infirmary Medical Museum, where the children enjoyed dressing up in old and new medical clothing! Finally, we watched a puppet show of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. The children loved the story and laughed throughout almost the entire puppet show!
Elm Class have been enjoying taking part in an active 10 minutes every morning! This helps us to get our bodies and minds ready for the day ahead! So far we have been practising balancing and throwing bean bags, as well as using hoola hoops. Come back soon to find out what other skills we have been practising!
