A Bug's Life



Meet George! He is our friendly class Giraffe. He was lucky enough to be taken home by Cody for his first weekend away where he had lots of fun and cuddles. He hopes the rest of the class will take him on some great adventures too!..........

We love reading in class Elm. Check out our reading corner where you can make yourself comfy, look at a book, re-tell stories and find the teacher's recommended read of the week ;-)  

Please remember to write in your child's reading diary when you have read with them at home.

A big thank you to Dean Rukas (Seth's Dad) for giving up his own time to come into Class Elm today (08.05.19) to talk to us about his job and how he helps people. Dean is a Watch Manager who takes emergency 999 calls. The children loved learning about his job and enjoyed asking LOTS of questions!...
