Welcome to Elm Class
The class teacher is Mrs Kabalan and the teaching assistant is Miss Survery. Mrs Trench teaches Elm class on a Monday.
Reading serves as the foundation for all your child's learning. It helps to widen their vocabulary and expand their imagination. We will change your child's reading book once a week. Your child will have a red reading log book to record the day we change their book.
We expect children to read at home to an adult 3 times a week so they can earn reading badges. Children need to read 10 books for a bronze badge, 14 books for a silver badge and 18 books for a gold badge.
Our PE day is Wednesday. Please ensure that your child's full PE kit is in school and is labelled (including pumps). It will be sent home every half term to be washed.
Homework will be sent home every Friday and should be returned by the following Tuesday.

Photographs of your child's learning experiences will be shared via ClassDojo.
Phonics, Literacy and Maths activities will be carried out daily. Children will also be learning through exploring our fantastic provision both indoors and outdoors.
If you have any questions or concerns, please come and speak to us at school or send us a message on ClassDojo. We are very excited for the year ahead and look forward to welcoming your child into Elm class.
