Literacy with Elm

As we enter into our Summer Term, Elm Class are learning how to write adventure stories. We will be looking at more complex sentences to make our writing even more exciting. We have looked at a range of Anthony Browne stories which have inspired the children to write an imaginative story based on their favourite toy coming to life. It is lovely to read all of their individual ideas in their writing.


Natural Art

In Art Elm Class will be looking at natural art as their topic. There will be a focus on Andy Goldsworthy and his work along with other artists. The children will be taking their learning outside and creating their own pieces of art using natural materials found around the school. This is a really fun topic for the children as they are able to experience working with different materials and the outcomes are amazingly creative.

The children completed the Land Art challenge and created some fantastic art.


Science in Elm



To end our topic of Life Cycles and animals we have been looking at habitats. The children have discussed different types of habitats and thought about what animals might live there. We have been busy making our own bug hotels. We collected natural materials from around the school and thought carefully about building a safe place for bugs. We have placed them in bushes, trees and in woodland around the field. We are going to revisit the bug hotels in coming weeks to see if any animals have moved in.
