Elm Class

Hello and welcome to Elm Class!

 

 

This class page will fill you in on everything we have been getting up to at Millstead school - but be prepared WE ARE VERY BUSY!  In Elm class we have 10 boys; Jaydem, Zac, Muhammed, Hakeem, Max, Ellis, Alex, Harry, Remario and Matthew. We keep our 5 staff members on their toes!

Lizzie is our class teacher and she works together with Michelle, Jackie, Katy and Louise to help us achieve all of our goals, become more independent, explore the local community and to support our access to the curriculum.

 

Make sure you keep checking our page to see what we have been getting up to!

We are the Elm class boys :)

In Elm class we decided we wanted to get some pets for our classroom. Lets explore and see what we can find..

Let me introduce our new Elm class pets, 10 African Snails!

Independence skills

 

Each member of Elm class now has their own African Snail to look after.

We are hoping that the boys will take the responsibility very seriously and look after their own snail, ensuring they have enough food and water to keep them alive. 'Malcolm', 'Bobby' and 'line leader' are a few of their names!
