Elm Class

Helping your child to learn at home.

You can help your child to learn through the little things you do with them, for example:

  • Lets get talking - Have lots and lots of everyday conversations about different things. Start your day off with a chat about the weather and keep track of the days of the week and date.                                                                   
  • Make-believe play - being superheroes, playing 'mummies and daddies', playing shopping, dress-ups, playing flying to the moon, tea-parties, playing trucks in the sandpit or garden and playing with dolls and teddies. 
  • Get Messy! - Messy play is a fantastic way to get your child engaged and motivated to learn. Click the link below for some messy play ideas.
  • Games with numbers or letters - I-Spy, counting our favourite toys and number hunts. Chalk is a great, cheap resource for writing numbers and letters outside for your child to trace. Check out the links to educational websites.  
  • Reading together - it's important that our children have lots of opportunities and access to reading as possible. Find your child's favourite story and read together. Encourage your child to follow along and talk and ask lots of questions as you read. Our topic this term is space and there are some stories to share on our class page. 
  • Involve them in the things you are doing - Involve your children in different household chores and activities. Make some fairy cakes and encourage your child to mix and pour. Make sure there is lots of talking through out! We have been focussing on chopping different foods in cookery this term. 
  • Keeping active - While inside, there are plenty of things you can do to keep your children active, such as: playing hide-and-seek, seeing who can do the most star jumps, making an obstacle course, playing music and having a dance-off.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Elm Class page. We have 10 boys and 1 girl in our class. Our teacher is called Michelle F and we have Michelle P, Lauren, Connor and Megan to support our learning. We have weekly cookery sessions with Vicky who helps us develop our independence in a kitchen whilst keeping ourselves safe. We also attend weekly swim sessions with Jo where we are now swimming with continued independence.


We are a very busy class. We love trying and learning new things and new skills. 

We love being out in the community and exploring our city. Keep an eye on our page for updates on the new and exciting things we are getting up to.
