naylorn on: Elm Class

This week I will be sending the children home with some assessments we have completed so you are able to see how they are doing and where they are up to. 

Any questions please ask. 

Next half term, we will be running a selection of boosters for the children to attend. Keep a look out for the letter. 

Well done to the children for their fantastic performance at the Christmas concert, I know many of them enjoyed it too. 

Thank you for your support this half term.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

naylorn on: Elm Class

This week in Literacy, we have been writing thank you letter to Andrea Jenkyns - we have made a good start and will be looking at ways to improve them before maybe sending some over to her.

In maths, was are continuing to work on Fractions - a tough subject but we are working hard to crack it. 

Nearly everyone in the class completed some My World homework, thank you for supporting your children in this - I hope you came to see the exhibition. 

Take a look at the pictures :)

Next week, we are having a visitor from the West Yorkshire Playhouse and a trip to Morley Academy! Exciting times ahead. 

The children are doing well for our Christmas Concert - it feels like Christmas already :) 

Have a great weekend.

Anti-Bullying and Parliament Week

naylorn on: Elm Class

This week the children have produced some excellent work based on both of our key themes. 

We have thought about the effects bullying can have and how we all have the power to make a change.

We have developed an understanding of Parliament and the children have been able to ask questions to a real MP!

We have also begun are own newspapers with the help of The Yorkshire Evening Post.

In class, we have had many discussion about being role models and behaving in the correct way - we will be continuing to run with this theme in class. 

Well done on some excellent work.

Junior Journalists

This week, Yorkshire Evening Post came to school and brought us a selection of newspapers to read - luckily for us, we will be getting a delivery for 6 weeks! Over these 6 weeks, children will be working on their own front covers for a newspaper, these stories can be fiction or non-fiction as long as they are written in the correct style. Yesterday, we had our pictures taken, so look out for that in today's newspaper. Maybe a new career in sight for some of them!

We have been writing about secret gardens in literacy - the ideas the children have come up with have been excellent. Many children have really been pushing themselves to evaluate what they have done as well, using a range of new writing techniques. 

In maths we have been applying our skills to BODMAS - ask your children what this means. 

Thank you for everyone who has returned the letter about the Christmas Concert, if you haven't or you have lost the letter please let me know. It will be great to have all the children there to celebrate together. 

Next week is anti-bullying week and Parliament week, this will the the focus for much of our work. 

Have a great weekend

Busy Week - Great fun, so much achieved!

naylorn on: Elm Class

What is busy and eventful week - i really hope our year 6s have had a great time completing a range of activities. 

On Monday we went out into the school grounds, pulled out lots of weeds and planted some bulbs for spring time - fingers crossed they will grow and look beautiful!

On Tuesday, we visited the memory garden, the wildlife area and sat in our amphitheatre. We have taken a range of pictures and are using them to create our own 'secret gardens' as part of our literacy work. 

On Wednesday, children completed research on War Time Vehicles - sent any recycling our way to help us create them!

On Thursday, we workied hard on our spelling and grammar - trying to find out what we know and what we need to work on. 

Today, we learnt all about Guy Fawkes and wrote recounts and poems! What a fantastic job they did!!! We also went to Nursery and helped bring the children outside to watch some firework, year 6 did a fantastic job and Mrs Williams invited us back!

Phew!!!! I hope you all sleep well this weekend ready for next week!!
