We investigated the contribution to the War Effort by the people on The Home Front. We then completed some sewing and baking using rationed ingredients.
We observed a two-minutes silence on Wednesday 11th November to remember those who died in service of our country. After that, we made a collage as a mark of respect to display in our class.
Curriculum Information for Parents- Autumn 1 2020
Our school tortoise has returned to school and Yoda has had a warm welcome from Team Elm! There could even be an opportunity for your child to bring Yoda home for a weekend or school-holiday (he gets a bit fed-up in school on his own!). Please let me know if this is something you can support us with.
Time to say good-bye...
After six weeks, the butterflies were ready to leave Elm Class.
On the days leading up to their release, we had nurtured them and provided them with different fruit for energy.
One afternoon, we took the butterflies to our outdoor area and allowed them to acclimatise. We played among the trees and enjoyed the space whilst we waited. When the time was right, we held them until they were confident enough to fly away.
Some of us were sad but we understood that our butterflies had an important job in supporting the local butterfly population.
World Smile Day-2nd October 2020
On World Smile Day we played games; tried to make others smile; told jokes; played with balloons and bubbles and enjoyed cookies at the end of the day. We had a lovely day, full of smiles!
Team Elm went for a walk around the field and got up close to nature. We used our photography skills to capture every detail of the beauty around us. Then we chose our favourites to print and used the twigs we collected on our walk to create frames for them. Here are our finished photographs on display in our class.

We have some new additions to Team Elm... caterpillars! We have made them a warm home and are nurturing them during their transition to a chrysalis then to a butterfly. They have already changed so much in the week that we have had them! If you visit our page each week, you will see the changes take place.
Say hello to the newest members of Team Elm!
