Welcome to Elm!
Spring Term 2020
Elm Class are keeping up the musical theme as this term, they are taking part in singing sessions with Ed from Carlisle Cathedral. They are learning Disney songs and will perform these as part of a schools’ choir at Carlisle Cathedral on Thursday 19h March. They visited Tullie House to take part in ‘Egyptians Week’ and loved getting hands on with Egyptian artefacts, creating artwork and taking part in the ancient ‘death rituals’. This has inspired some character description writing, using the various Egyptian Gods as stimuli.
Autumn Term 2019
Elm Class (Year 3 and 4) have been learning about different teeth and used modelling icing to make the different types of teeth we have in our gums. This was lots of fun and helped children remember the correct names. They visited Stocks Wood Forest School to learn about life in the forest and woodcraft. The children’s art gallery of portrait pictures was well attended and much of the art work was ‘sold’! The money raised has been put towards buying some new wet break time games. In RE they have been learning about different cultures and festivals of light.
All the KS2 children (Year 3-6) took part in a visiting Tullie House workshop about Remembrance Day, working with an actor in role, ‘Poppy’ to learn more about what life was like then.
The children from Elm class went for a 'Dragon Walk' and placed posters around the village. Please see the photographs below.
