Welcome to Elm Class pages where we hope you will find out all about our Year 6 children and what they have been learning.
Elm Class has 30 children and the class is taught by Mrs Curtin, Mrs Alexandrou and Mrs Ransley, and like the other classes they also get up to all kinds of fun learning!

Elm Class T1+2 2020 -What we were up to...
Term 1 & 2
Elm Class have had an exciting and jam-packed year so far! They have all been working extremely hard and have settled back in to the school routine brilliantly.
We have learnt lots already and had some interesting topics covered. In Term 1, we spent lots of time reading about Michael’s adventure story in Kensuke’s Kingdom, whilst learning new Japanese art skills. We also spent lots of time covering the Vikings, even having a go at crafting our own longboats using origami.
This term, we have immersed ourselves in World War Two, which the children have thoroughly enjoyed! (They especially liked the random and surprise siren that went off numerous times, alerting the children that enemy war planes were flying overhead; the children had to hide under the table until the all clear was given.) In groups, the children made some amazing Anderson shelters that had to pass three tests: they had to fit a lego man in, they had to withstand 1kg of weight and they had to be waterproof. All groups were successful and created indestructible shelters!
The children have worked exceptionally hard this past term. They have learnt new things and revised past learning, along with written lots and lots! I am so proud of what they have achieved and their hard work has paid off with brilliant assessment scores.
I hope you all have a super Christmas break.
