Friday 17th September
Good afternoon everyone. We have had another fun filled week in Elm Class. This week we have carried on with our focus book The Worrysaurus by Rachel Bright. In English the children have been learning about instructions, both how to follow them and how to write an instructional text.
In Math's we have practiced counting backwards from 20 and have been identifying one more and one less than a given number.
The children have also thoroughly enjoyed their first P.E. lesson of the year. This term we are focusing on Invasion games and this week we learnt how to chest pass a ball.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Monday morning - in your forest school kits! (See class letter).

Welcome to Elm Class!
It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome all of the new Year 1 children into Elm class this week. Miss Taylor and I have been so impressed with how well they have remembered the routines and procedures of school, after a long summer break.
We have had a fantastic first week getting to know all of the children and exploring our first topic together.
This term our topic is linked to a whole school topic 'Emotional Intelligence' where we will be exploring the different emotions we feel during everyday life and how we can understand and manage them.
We have begun the topic by reading The Dot by Peter Reynolds and The Worrysaurus by Rachel Bright.
Enjoy the selection photos below our first week as Elm Class 2021!
