Hello Elm Class!

Still image for this video
This week we asked Mr Shapcott to help us make a video message for you. Enjoy!

Hello Elm Class!!


Thank you for sending in photos of what you have been doing this week.  We have been really impressed by the fantastic home learning taking place.  Keep helping out your parents at home and show them how considerate and responsible you can be.   We are missing you all very much! 


Love From Mrs Northam and Mrs Shapcott smiley

 UPDATE  Feedback for Home Learning

We hope you are all well and have adjusted to learning from home.  We are missing the children!  To enable us to 'check in' with Elm Class, we are going to ask parents to send photos of selected work (indicated on the timetable*) to the class account every Wednesday when possible (our usual returning homework day).  Then, we can email back with some feedback either on Wednesday or Thursday.  We'd also like to put some examples of work on the photos section of the website.  Many thanks for your continued support as we get to grips with managing home learning!

* Please note:  From the week 1 timetable, we'd love to see food chain work, poems and  Egyptian headdresses!
