Welcome to Elm Class!
Welcome to the Elm Class page! Elm class is made up of the 29 year 5 and 6 children at Sundridge and Brasted. We're the eldest in the school, which means that we set a good example for the younger children. In addition, we like to practice our seven school values of: Wisdom, Forgiveness, Respect, Friendship, Trust, Courage and Perseverance. These seven values are what everyone in the school tries to be like, but we understand that we aren't perfect and that we all need some help and second chances sometimes. To be in Elm is an honour and a privilege; our classroom is a unique environment of learning and fun, where we all work to the best of our ability. Each year we are really lucky to go on a residential trip! For these, we alternate between France and an activity centre in the U.K. We have a great teacher, Mrs. Taylor - Hicks, who helps us in class, and Mrs. Scott and Mr. Stephens help out too. In our class we are kind, caring and respectful and we always work together as a team. When we do this, we can earn team points, which means that Mrs. Taylor - Hicks puts marbles in a jar, and when the jar is full up we get a class treat. Because Year 6 are at the very top of the school, they all have special responsibilities, such as: Head boy, Head girl, Prefects, House Captains, and Collective Worship Captains, and are buddies to the children in Maple Class.
It's great fun being in Elm Class - it is awesome and unique and we are all happy to be here!

This term's topic
Our topic this term is called: "Tomorrow's World" and it is about computers. We will be learning about the history of different technologies - it's very interesting how the size of mobile phones has changed so much over the years. They have changed from having to carry around a huge battery pack to being the same size as your hand! So far, we have looked at different websites and reviewed them, to learn what makes a successful one. This will help us to create our own websites, all about e-safety. We have also helped to re-design our classes's page on the school website.
