Elm Class

Welcome to our class page! This will give you a bit of an idea of the amazing things we will be doing in Elm this term.


In Elm you will find teachers Miss Yeo and Mrs Chandler (Wednesday afternoons) as well as our LSA, Miss Rosewood. This term our topic is 'Scott of the Antarctic''. Please look at the topic web in the 'Spring 1' link below to see what this half term has in store...


Homework will be set every week, this will consist of a Maths, English or Quest task/activity. This will be sent home in a homework folder which will need returning the following Monday. Spelling shed and NumBots usernames and passwords should be stuck in the front of children's reading records along with their Google account information. Spelling shed and NumBots are ongoing home resources that you can use to help your child consolidate their learning at home.


Reading books will be changed up to 2 times per week with the expectation that the children will read each night. Book changing days are a Monday and Thursday. Please record your reading at least twice in the reading record so we can change them!


Our PE days are Tuesday and Fridays. Please could children come to school in their PE kit on these days and I would suggest packing extra layers as we will be outside as much as possible. Children will also need a coat every day as we aim to be outside for playtimes and lunchtimes.


Children will be offered a bit of fruit every morning as a snack however if you would prefer to send your child in with a different healthy snack then please do so. Also, please ensure children have a named water bottle to bring in every day.


If you have any questions or queries about anything this term please contact me through my class email at elm@eastsomersetfederation.co.uk and I will be happy to help.


All the best,


Miss Yeo
