Elm Class - Mrs Harding

Welcome to all new year 6 children and parents. This is our class page, I will try to keep it up to date with what is happening as well as useful information and dates. Pop back every now and again to take a look: see pictures, information and our class blog which will let you know what has been happening in our class and around school! Feel free to leave a comment!

Need To Know

P.E. will be on a Thursday and a Friday - children will need an indoor and outdoor kit as well as long hair tied back (water bottles also advisable) Children will also need a change of shoes. 

Planners - children should bring their planners every day and should be signed weekly by an adult at home, this is a useful an important too for communicating between home and school. 

Book bags - Please make sure that children only bring what is needed to school as space is limited in classrooms.

Water bottles - Children need to be hydrated to keep their brains active, please bring a water bottle. 



Reading - children need to read weekly and will be sent home with a reading book. Please record in their planners when they have read. 

Spellings - children will have spellings to revise each week, these maybe a spelling patterns or words chosen from the National Curriculum List.

Other homework will either be sent home in a homework book or set our our online revision site - SATs companion. More information will be sent home where necessary.

It has been a busy week for the year 6 teachers this week - we are currently booking our bikability dates and some trips to high school!!! The fun never stops!

We have written some recounts this week, about our trip to Magna, we are trying to develop our writing and boost our grammar knowledge, the children are working hard. We would love to get some pictures up for you so please send back those photo permission forms.

We have completed drama activities, tried our hand at gardening and started our new debating lessons - the children were so good and I look forward to next week. 

We are having a lot of issues with left jumpers and PE kits - they have no names in and the children often do not recognise it is theirs, please help us out and put names in all clothing. 

Have a lovely weekend - whatever the weather!!!!

Moving along nicely....

Happy Friday!

Don't forget, next week - on Tuesday -  is our school trip! Children need to have a packed lunch that can be thrown away (no fizzy drinks or glass bottles please). 
Parent's evening is next week as well - so make sure you are signed up!

Homework is set on SATs companion, your children know how to log on and have been shown how to use it in class. A link below if you need.

This week children have begun painting volcano art! They are unfinished, but look great so far - pictures to follow. 
We have had a circle time all about making the correct choices and how we need to be a team and help each other - starting with the way we sometimes speak to each other. Hopefully all of our growth mindset stories will have a positive impact too :) 

Have a good weekend.

Welcome Back

naylorn on: Elm Class

Well done to Elm Class on their first week (or half week) back!

They have settled quickly and easily into their new routines, I am one very proud teacher. They are showing great independence by taking themselves to assemblies as well as showing great RESPECT for other children and for staff working around school. I hope they can continue to show our school values through their final school year.

We have a school trip approaching!! Please dig your child's letter out of their bags :)

Thank you to you and all the children for such a smooth and easy start to the year.

Mrs Harding.
