Year 4 – Elm Class
Welcome to Elm Class.
Elm Class is where you will find our Year 3 pupils. The class are lucky enough to share the room with lots of adults to help us. Class teacher, Miss Morris, is joined by teaching assistants Mr Thomas, Mrs Chevins and Miss Stockton.
We have PE on a Monday morning with Mr Hounsell, our sports coach, and on a Friday afternoon with Elm Class adults. We love the range of sports that we learn; archery, cricket, dodgeball, basketball, boccia, rugby and many, many more. Mr Thomas works with our class to help us learn Spanish, which we think is fantastic! Tenemos ganas de aprender y mejorar!
We love to learn! We are creative, experimental, inquisitive investigators. Our lessons are filled with the sharing of ideas and interesting discussions, exploring new topics and new skills. We use fun and engaging stimulus for lessons to ensure that every day is a new adventure. We strive to fire imagination and create experiences that the children will remember. Our independence is developing as well as our independent thinking and decision making. We use these skills and the resources around our room to help us in our lessons. We are currently learning all about the changes over prehistoric periods of time. We are researching how people lived during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. After Christmas, we will be starting our geography-based topic of Our Wonderful World where we will be studying in depth the amazing things that occur on our planet including earthquakes, volcanoes, tornados and tsunamis. These are also the lessons that will get your child talking at home, so you might enjoy finding out a little about the topics they are learning so you can chat about them together. In science, our attention will turn to forces and magnets. We will discover how different things move on different surfaces and observe how the magnets attract or repel each other as well as some materials.
In Year 3 we are encouraged to question, to be creative and to find pleasure in the wonderful world of books and stories. One of our favourite things to do in Elm Class is to share our class story. We enjoy immersing ourselves in the plot and talking about what we think might happen next. The grown-ups always attempt the different characters voices and tease us by leaving us on a cliff-hanger!
One of our most important jobs in Year 3 is to become outstanding role models for the younger pupils in school. We are brilliant at this thanks to demonstrating our learning behaviours.
