Welcome to Elm Class
Elm Class (Year 4 & 5) is taught by Miss Barker. Miss Hammond Reynolds supports the class on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
During the Summer Term of Year 4, pupils take part in the government's Multiplication Check which assesses, at speed, their knowledge of times tables. Daily times tables practice on apps such as Hit the Button, and reading of the book your child brings home is the best way you can support your child to do well - not just in their multiplication check - but across all subject areas.
Pupils in Elm Class continue to enjoy weekly Forest School sessions linked to the wider curriculum every Monday. We're very lucky to have our own school wood; the changing natural environment provides a wonderful space for your child to learn, explore and challenge themselves in a safe and familiar setting.
Homework: Homework is given every Monday and is due to be handed in the following Monday. Children will be given maths every week and then either SPAG or comprehension alternate weeks.
Spellings: Five spellings will be given fortnightly on a Monday and tested the following Friday along with five other words using the same spelling pattern.
Forest Schools: Our Forest School session is on a Monday afternoon. Children need to come dressed in suitable clothes, including a warm/waterproof coat, wellies and a spare pair of shoes for walking around school.
PE: Our P.E lesson is on a Thursday. Children need to come dressed in their PE kit comprising of white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms, trainers, Stakesby hoody or Stakesby jumper/cardigan. Hair should be tied back and any earrings should be removed before the lesson.
