Elm Class

Welcome to Elms class page
This week the reception team (Mrs Pett, Mrs Martin and Miss Reed) have been getting to know all our lovely new children and introducing them to our school. We have explored our classroom, outdoor learning area and even visited the rest of the classrooms!
Below are some photos of their first few sessions with us!
We believe that education is a life-long process.  A child’s education does not cease when they leave our school premises; learning at home is an essential part of good education. 
Home Learning is any work or activity completed outside lesson time, either alone, with parents, or others. Home Learning makes an important contribution to progress at school. It is used to enhance and support the pupils’ learning within school and also to prepare them for secondary school.             
From the Early Years simple games, learning sounds, counting and of course, reading with parents, provides valuable opportunities for the practice of key skills in a supportive environment.  As children get older they need to develop the habit of regularly devoting short periods of time to personal study.  All children are expected to take part in a variety of Home Learning tasks to enhance and support their work in class.
Over the course of the year children will be asked to complete one piece of homework a term from our home learning menu. Which can be added to seesaw our home/school communication app that will be accessable through a QR code in their monkey books. 
We are so excited to see which piece of work you choose to do each term!!

Our topic this half term is "Marvelous Me". During this term we will be focusing on what makes us unique. We will be reading stories to help us understand our emotions, explore our senses and identifying parts of our bodies.  
Below is our curriculum overview which details which topics we will be focussing on in class including a wide variety of learning and development for your children in Reception.
