Hello! We are Elm class. We have 6 girls and 6 boys in our class. Our teacher is called Sophie and we have Annemarie, Bernie, Kate and Jodie our apprentice to support our learning. We also have Sharon and Kirsty who help us with mindfulness and our weekly yoga. We are a very independent class and we love a challenge. We like to be out in the local community and exploring our surroundings.

Every Friday Elm class walk to Faith Primary to take part in lunch time play activities with children from all different year groups. It is amazing to see the friendships that have already started to develop after only two visits!
In Elm class we take part in peer massage before lunch time to get ourselves ready for transitioning to the hall. We repeat it twice turning our chairs around so everyone has a turn at having a massage. Have a go at home!
Brushing Our Teeth
After lunch each day, we brush our teeth to this song. We can put tooth paste on our brushes by ourselves and we like to have a little boogie whilst we brush. When the song finishes we know to put our brushes away.
