At Waterfoot School, we think for ourselves but feel for others.

Elm Class

Welcome to Elm class page!

We are a class of year 1 and and year 2 children. Our teacher is Mrs Ginty and our teaching assistant is Mrs Atkin. 

Our P.E days are on a Monday and a Tuesday and your child should come to school in their P.E kit. 

Please make sure your child brings in their reading book and diary every day and try to read a little each day. Raffle tickets are awarded each time your child reads and they can win a prize on a Friday if their ticket is drawn out. We can also win the playtime toy box if we get the most reads in Key stage 1 each week! 

Please make sure your child has a water bottle each day.

Fruit is available for a snack at any point during the day. 

Remote Learning


If your child is isolating and absent from school because they are waiting for a COVID test result of a household member or themselves and they feel well, then please help them continue with their learning remotely at home as a short measure (2/3 days).  

To keep learning please can they access from home the following: 

  • ​EYFS play MiniMash - play the games to develop their maths and literacy skills 
  • PurpleMash (KS1/2)- complete the 2Dos for English and maths skills practice 

  • Bug Club (All key stages) – read some of the texts and answer the questions about the book. If they are in KS2 ask them to write a short recount or make a book review too 

  • Sumdog (KS1/2) – play in the games section to revise key skills and check and complete maths tasks/homework set by their class teacher 

  • TTRockstars (Year 2 upwards) – play in the Garage Band to practise key times tables that have been set and play in the Studio Band to improve their Rockstar status 

  • Teach your Monster to Read (Phonics EYFS/KS1) – ensure your child logs onto their account each day to learn the sounds appropriate for their phonics phase 

For any longer isolation 10/14 days a different online learning platform (Microsoft Teams - which is currently being set up for every child) will be provided with more detailed content and lessons. More details to follow. 

If your child is unable to access the online platforms for any reason such as no internet connection or device, please contact school immediately where we will provide further support. 




This week we had a surprise visitor in our class - a strange blue creature! He was found in our outdoor area in a bucket, hiding amongst the pebbles and grass. We asked lots of questions as to what it might be and where it came from. We made 'found' posters and displayed them to see if anyone knew what it was! We received a letter from a Mr Green who also sent a book called 'The Bog Baby'. He explained it might answer our questions....We have read the first part of the story and we have found out that he is called a Bog Baby! The children have been making him new homes and even made new Bog Babies! We are looking forward to finding out what happens in the story! .

We are enjoying our P.E. lessons with coach Paul!

After our woodland walk on Monday, we made bookmarks using the natural materials that we had collected.
