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

Elm Class

Welcome to Elm Class




We are a class of year 1 and and year 2 children. Our teacher is Mrs Ginty and our teaching assistant is Mrs Lord. Mrs Seal also helps in our classroom in the mornings and Ms Topping in the afternoons. Mrs Shorrocks teaches us on a Thursday afternoon. 

Our P.E days are on a Tuesday and a Wednesday 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 Education 

If your child is self-isolating at home (due to Covid symptoms or a positive Covid test result) but are well enough to continue with their schoolwork, then we will support them by providing remote learning through our online platforms and MS Teams. For detailed information on the policies and procedures we follow in such cases, please refer to our school website-key information-remote education section.

Autumn Term 1

Our topic this term is called 'Toys old and new'. Try and have a go at some of the homework from the topic homework grid and bring anything in to show us in class. 


4-10-21 Elm class love to read! In our Eric time (everyone reading in class) we use whisper phones so we can hear ourselves reading. We like to use magic reading glasses and finger lights too! Bug club has lots of amazing books to read and we are getting very good at logging ourselves on now.

20-9-21 In maths this week, we have been representing numbers in different ways, counting forwards and backwards and writing numbers in numerals and words. We have worked so hard!

13-9-21 In phonics this morning we went on a word hunt! We have been learning the alternative spellings for the 'ee' sound. We had to tick off the words we had found, such as leaf, steam, concrete, green; on our clipboards.

10-9-21 Today we all brought in a favourite toy from home. We talked about the material they were made out of and which toys are popular. We had so much fun investigating!

8-9-21 Today we received a special delivery from the postman. It was addressed to Elm class. When we opened it we found a book inside called 'Lost in space'. We think it might have something to do with our found alien toy Cuddles....

Lost and Found!

Today we went for a lovely summer walk in our woodlands to enjoy our gorgeous September sunshine! When we reached the campfire circle, we couldn't believe what we had found... There sitting on the chair was a strange looking creature called Cuddles! It had a label on it that said, ' I am lost. Please help me find my friend Elm class'. We wondered where he had come from and we searched to find clues. We found some small stars and screws that we thought could have fallen from a spaceship! When we got back to class we checked the school cameras... There was indeed a spaceship hovering in the sky above our classroom!
