Elm

 

Welcome to the Elm Class page!

 

 

Teacher: Miss Thorne and Ms Williams
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Grave

We are a Year 1 class at St James Church School.

 

Hello and welcome to our class page. We are very excited to share our learning in school and top tips on paces to find ways to continue this learning at home.

 

We will have P.E every week until October half term. Please ensure the children's P.E kits are in school all week.

Please ensure you continue to read with your child a minimum of three times per week at home. Bug Club is an excellent resource that has interactive questions about the book they have just read, supporting the children's comprehension skills. Please also encourage your child to read other forms of literature such as the First News children's newspaper, non-fiction books and even packaging labels. We'd love to know what they've read so remember to fill in the purple home/school book; we will check this every week. Your child will also bring home a picture book of their choice to share at home and have read to them.

SCIENCE WEEK! 20th of May 2019 This week Elm class will be taking part in lots of science investigations and experiments. Today we learnt about the different colours we can find in nature. We were surprised to find lots of yellow and green items but not very many red things. When we got back to the classroom we sorted them onto colour charts.

WOW starter. We had so much fun in Elm when we introduced our new learning expedition. We did some paint printing using fruit and vegetables, we drew and painted fruit and vegetables and we made some brilliant vegetable friends!

25th April 2019 - Today the children in year 1 were lucky enough to be invited to Blackbrook Pavilion to take part in a multi skills morning. They learnt skills to help with balance, co-ordination and movement and had SO much fun!

27th February 2019 - Year 1 had a fantastic time at the Somerset Museum. We pretended to be paleontologists by digging for fossils and we painted our own ammonite. There is so much to see at the museum; maybe take a trip there one weekend or in the holidays and let the children show you around!

Mount Elm exploding!

16th November 2018 - We have had so much fun this week learning about volcanoes as part of our 'Fire Fire' learning expedition. We built our volcano using mod rock and when it was dry we painted it. The best part was watching it explode! We learnt that volcanoes erupt with a hot liquid called lava.

7th November 2018 - No Pens Wednesday. The children, and the teachers, have all been banned from using pens today! We had to think of creative ways to complete our lessons today. We concentrated really hard on communication and speaking and listening.

16th October 2018 - Science - Everyday Materials - We have been looking at lots of different kinds of materials this week. We have investigated their properties to find a suitable material for a dragon trap! Elm class decided it needed to be waterproof to protect the dragon's eggs!

Maths - Place Value. In Elm class we have been learning how to represent the numbers within 10 using pictures, objects, numerals and words. We have learnt lots of different ways of representing one more and one less than a given number and comparing groups of objects.

WOW Starter 'Fire Fire' - We have started our Learning Expeditions topic for this term by taking a trip to Forest School. Mr Aldridge helped us understand what we need to build a fire and the importance of fire safety. We then got to toast some marshmallows before using water to put the fire out.
