Welcome to Elm Class
Elm Class (Year 5) is taught by Mrs Robinson.
During your child's time in Elm Class, we continue to lay the foundations for a successful and independent Year 6. There are increased opportunities for your child to contribute to the successful day-to-day running of Stakesby, and to represent our school within the wider community and beyond.
Pupils in Elm Class continue to enjoy weekly Forest School sessions (every other half term) linked to the wider curriculum. These session take place on a Monday. We're very lucky to have our own school wood; the changing natural environment provides a wonderful space for your child to learn, explore and challenge themselves in a safe and familiar setting.
Homework: Your child will have a homework task set on Sumdog each Monday. This is to be completed by the following Monday. The task follows on from what they have learned in class, and will be personalised to your child. We expect all children to read to an adult four times per week to improve their decoding, fluency and comprehension. Children who read more than this are rewarded with a prize in our Star of the Week assembly.
Spellings: Five spellings will be given every Monday and tested on a Friday along with five other words using the same spelling pattern.
Forest School: Our Forest School session is on a Monday afternoon of Autumn 1, Spring 1 and Summer 1 half terms. Children need to come to school dressed in warm/waterproof clothes including hats, gloves, warm coat and wellies in winter, and suitable layers in summer. Please ensure that the children have a spare pair of shoes to walk comfortably around school in.
PE: Our P.E lesson is on a Tuesday. Children need to come dressed in their PE kit comprising of white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms, trainers, Stakesby hoodie or Stakesby jumper/cardigan. Hair should be tied back and any earrings should be removed before the lesson.
