Elm Class

Teacher: Miss J Wakeling | Teaching Assistant: Mrs L Neate



Maths and English homework will be sent out every Thursday and should be returned to school on Tuesday.

In addition, practising the following at home will really benefit learning:

counting forward and backwards in 2’s (0-20), 5’s (0-50), 10’s (0-100).

quick recall of times tables in particularly x2, x5, x10.

quick recall of doubles and halves of numbers up to 24



Our topic this half term is Once Upon a Time… In English, we will be looking at range of Traditional Tales as well as some funny poetry by Roald Dahl. In Maths, we will be investigating numbers up to 100 and develop strategies for adding and subtracting. We also have Maths Week coming up at the end of September which will be full of lots of investigations and practical activities. We will also be participating in invasion games, studying the lovely artwork of Paul Klee and making our own animations on the iPads.
