Class Teacher: Fay Cripps
Welcome to Elm Class one of our Key Stage 2 classes here at Littlegreen Academy.
Welcome to Elm Class
We have had a fantastic start to the new school year.
We have been practicing our active listening skills and we all know what is expected of us when we are asked to 'listen'. We have also looked at ways of asking for help, found our own ways to ask for help and we know that everyone has times that they don't understand - even adults!
We are already using the zones of regulation to help us think about how we are feeling, using the blob trees to show how we are feeling and are starting to look at the words that can describe these feelings.
This term our topic is Explorers, Inventors and Heroes. As part of our stunning start we went exploring our woods and played Jumanji which is going to be the inspiration for creating our own board games that explore an imaginary world.
We have started our journey of becoming Word Ninjas; each week we learn a new word and we practice saying it, writing it, drawing it and linking it. We are reading the adventures of The Midnight Gang by David Williams as a class and to help us write our own adventures stories we are reading The Dark and Stormy Night
