Take a peek at our classroom:

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.

What does learning look like in Elm Class....?

The areas in the classroom are:

  • Construction Area
  • Creative Area
  • Finger Gym
  • Maths Area
  • Phonics Area/ Reading Area
  • Writing Area



Enchanted Elm's curriculum plan

15.01.24: We had a visit from Brown Owl who taught the children their new grapheme 'ow'. You can have a go at home and blend the words below using our new diagraph.

04.12.23: This week the children have been learning Cool Blue's long vowel  'oo' in their phonics lesson. See below to find some word cards to support your child with recognising and blending words containing 'oo'. 


Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA)

This academic year children in Reception classes across the country will be taking part in a national assessment programme called the Reception Baseline Assessment. This is a short, interactive assessment of your child's early literacy, communication, language and mathematical skills using practical resources your child is used to in school. This is a statutory baseline that every school has to carry out. 


We want to stress that this assessment is not about 'labelling' or 'judging' your child. It is simply a starting point to measure the progress school's make with their pupils. Your child can not 'pass' or 'fail' the assessment. Your child will not know that they are undertaking a test of any kind and they can take a break if we feel it is too much for your child to do. 

The following leaflet has information for parents about the Reception Baseline Assessment, but if you have any questions then please just speak to Mrs Davies or Mrs Miller. 

Meet George! He is our friendly class Giraffe. George likes going home with a different child each week and going on lots of adventures. 

11.12.23: This week Tricky Witch came to visit us and explained how she likes to trick children and change some of the phonemes by putting them together to make a diagraph with a different sound. She taught us 'a' and 'r' make  'ar' and below are some of the words the children have been blending in class.
