We are a mixed year 5 and 6 class of 28 children. As we are at the top end of the school, we must set the example for the younger children, and take on lots of roles and responsibilities, particularly in year 6. All the Y6 children have jobs, such as : house captains, head boy and girl, prefects, sports captains, collective worship captains and technology prefect.
Elm class help everyone, and we definitely practice our seven school values. We are a very caring class and we do lots of good learning with our teacher Mrs Taylor - Hicks.
We do a lot of team work in our class, and we can have earn team points. This means that when we work really well together, Mrs. Taylor – Hicks puts marbles in a jar and when the jar is full up we get a class treat! We also go on residential trips, alternating between France and an activity centre in the UK.
Elm class is amazing, unique and we all love it!

Our topic this term is: Allotment. So far, we have planted vegetables and fruits outside our classroom. We have also been learning about where in the UK different types of farms are, and how these are affected by temperature and rainfall. Before this, we learn about different farming practice around the world too.
This term in Elm, our topic is called Allotment. This is about plants and nature. We have learnt about the main types of farm in the UK and where different types of food come from.
Each fortnight, a different member of Elm class will write a short paragraph about what we have been up to. This fortnight, Connor has written about our mock election:
Last week we held a fantastic, life-like mock election; this was very fun and gave us a great understanding of what the real election is like. We all got into parties (Progress, Transform, Vision and Tomorrow.) Transform won, by just one vote! It was a great experience, and I hope that when other children do this, they will enjoy it just as much.
