Welcome to Elm Class

Class Teacher: Miss Knowles

Teaching Assistant: Mr McKaigg


Welcome to Elm Class!


This half term, Elm’s topic is ‘The Rainforests’ – where we will be looking at tropical and temperate climate zones, rainforest habitats and threats to these ecosystems. Our lessons will combine geographical skills with scientific knowledge and understanding about living things and their habitats.


In English, we will be reading Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll to build on the World War 2 work completed last year. This will inspire our writing across a number of different non-fiction and narrative genres.


We have PE on Wednesday and Thursday so don’t forget to come to school dressed in PE kit on those days!


Children will receive homework on a Wednesday and it is due on a Monday. Homework will include English and maths tasks linked to our class based work. The children will also receive spellings to learn each Monday and these will be tested on a Friday.


Please continue to encourage your child to read daily and keep their reading record up to date. Children are also expected to log onto Doodle Maths and Times Tables Rock Stars regularly during the week, as these are excellent resources to help reinforce maths concepts.


Thank you very much for your support. If you have any queries, feel free to call or email the school office.
