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.
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:
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.
