Welcome to Elms Class!

We are a friendly class of Year 2 and 3 children.

We are kind, polite, imaginative and creative.

Above all, we like to have fun with our learning! Have a look below to find out more about our class and see what we have been up to.

Electrical dances!

Elms Class have been using our electricity topic to create their own dances. They thought about how electricity and the components of a circuit might move, putting together sequences of actions and gestures. They have been working hard to move in time to the music.

The dance off - boys v girls! Who would you vote for?

Exploring electrical circuits

During their first Science session, Elms were encouraged to explore the electrical equipment. At first they were very cautious and unsure about what to do. But once they got going and used their problem solving skills, there was no stopping them! See what the children had to say for themselves:-

Story Telling

Elms Class worked in pairs to create oral stories. Each pair was given three mysterious objects, people or places. They had to link their three cards together in an imaginative way. Some were easier than others!

2014 / 2015 School Year

We have been working very hard on our Anglo Saxon homework projects. We all chose different things that we were interested in finding out about. Some of us chose to do Powerpoints and videos. Here are some to share.
