Welcome to Elm Class one of our Key Stage 2 classes here at Littlegreen Academy.
Autumn Term 2023
Elm class have had a fantastic start to the new school year. They have returned to school in their new class ready and eager to learn. They are showing the Littlegreen Academy values in everything we are doing.
All pupils in Elm have been very accepting of the new routines, learning, staff, and peers. We have done some team building activities where everyone was able to participate and work together. They have shown great kindness towards one another, supporting, and helping each other with work and when playing team building games.
We have started our new topic, Innuits to Incas (North and South America) learning all about the rainforest! Everyone in Elm class has demonstrated amazing courage and perseverance, giving all our new learning a go, even when it gets hard.
In Geography we have been learning about the rainforests, we have discovered where they are in the world and what the climate is like there. We even wrote and presented our own rainforest weather reports, where pupils were able to choose their own country, research and present a weather report all about the climate in that country’s rainforest.
Everyone was incredibly ambitious with their presentations, ensuring they had lots of information and even used props to present their weather forecasts.
We are looking forward to counting our topic this half term and will be creating our own rainforest shoe boxes in Art and DT. The pupils have already began designing them and are looking forward to making them in the coming weeks. We are also looking forward to continuing with horse-riding this half-term.
