Church Of England Primary School

Welcome to Elm Class!

Elm class is taught by Mrs Gibson. Miss Smith and Mrs Hayhurst are the teaching assistants. Miss Bolton will also be working with us 2 afternoons in the week.

Homework is given out on Fridays and should be in for the following Wednesday.

Spellings are given out on Wednesdays and are practiced on Mondays.

In Elm class we use Read Write Inc Spelling to support our learning and follow the Read Write Inc spelling and phonics programme. 

We have guided reading books in class and have a range of texts used for home readers, please encourage your child to change their own book as frequently as required. Once your child has read their book they can do a quiz on accelerated reader.

PE is on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.

Please ensure your child has a named water bottle in school at all times. Please label all jumpers also.


Outdoor learning will take place in the first part of the Autumn term on a Friday afternoon.
