Elm Class

Elm Class

Elm is our Y1 class and we have Mr Rowe as our class teacher. We are also supported by a team of Teaching Assistants including Mrs Thompson and Mrs Sellars.

We share our lovely indoor and outdoor learning spaces with Willow Class (the Reception Class) and their teachers, Mrs Lorimer and Mrs Swinburne. We work together in our learning unit and Mrs Swinburne coordinates this phase of school.

In our class, we follow the Y1 National Curriculum in addition to the Nottinghamshire syllabus for RE and the Nottinghamshire Computing Framework.

We are encouraged to be independent learners so the environment is set out support learning and development. During afternoon sessions throughout the week, we access the different learning zones to complete our weekly ‘Rainbow Challenge’. During these times, one of the adults often comes along side us to join in our learning fun or to take note of the amazing ideas, cooperation, communication and creativity that they see.

To find out more about our learning activities, please take a look at our learning blog.
