Welcome to Elm Class!
We hope you have had a great rest over the Easter Half Term. We are really looking forward to a busy summer term.
Our topic web for this half term is below. Please click on the link for Summer 1.
Please can I remind you of the following for when children are back in school:
- Please bring a NAMED water bottle to school each day. This needs to be filled with water only.
- If you wish your child to have snack each day, this is £1 per week. Alternatively, you can pay in full for the half term.
- PE is on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please send your child to school in their PE kits. As the weather is still cold, jogging bottoms and trainers are fine for your children to wear to school along with their red PE top and their school jumper. Children must wear black school PE pumps which can be purchased from most large grocery shops (Asda, Aldi, Sainburys). These can be left at school. Alternatively, white soled trainers are fine but NO LACES as these are not practical in Reception and Key Stage 1.
- Home Work and Reading:
School reading books are sent home on a Monday. Please read with your children at least 3 times a week and record this in the yellow diary. Books will then be collected in on a Friday.
Children can also access phonics and reading through reading eggs. Your login details have been sent to you on the showbie app. Homework is set weekly on reading eggs and all children are expected to access this.
Should you wish to speak with any of the adults in Elm Class, please contact the office to make an appointment, we are always here to help.

The Early Years Foundation Stage
Please read the documents below which outline the principles of the Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and how our children learn in Reception. The Early Years Framework has been revised from April 2017. An updated copy of the framework is available below.
The Overview documents also offer more detail about the learning in each area of the Early Years and Foundation Stage curriculum.
We have signed all the children up with their own individual account on reading eggs, which supports phonics and early reading. The programme is very child friendly and children should be able to access this independently.
Your Login and password details can be accessed through showbie. Please access reading eggs via the web address rather than the app.
