Elm Class had a great time with Mr Miles at the tennis coaching. Everyone tried their very best and showed great resilience. I was very impressed by all the children’s attitudes and collaboration. A quick poll in Elm reveals 100% of the children enjoyed it!

Another busy week of preparations in Elm Class (shout out to the children in Beech and Pine as well!). The stage is now up, props are - almost -finished and the children are preparing for their first dress rehearsal as I type this. School has shaken to the sound of singing and so many have risen to the occasion and are putting their best foot forward. Wednesday does not seem that far away!

The mystery of where to get the props from is slowly getting solved! The children of Elm, Pine and Beech classes have begun work on creating the many props for the play. It is great to see so many children thriving in the many roles a production requires of them. Rehearsals continue with only seven school days before the performance!

Our class thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Herd Farm near Leeds which gave them an insight into Iron Age life. They explored three round houses, built their own wattle fences, threw spears and enjoyed dressing up in costume and wearing war paint! The children were fantastic and I loved seeing the excitement. Brilliant attitudes were on display throughout. Well done Elm Class.

This week the children in Elm class have enjoyed planning and making their own cloth using a simple loom. It took a few attempts to get used to the weaving pattern but they are getting there! We have explored the clothing that would be typical in the iron age and have tried to replicate the simple patterns using woollen materials.

This week Elm Class explored in detail what makes up food chains. We began by discussing producer and consumers and came up with our own ideas. We then researched a range of food chains. Our research led us to living creatures that were producers and consumers. We learnt that light was needed to drive all food production. We then wondered how creatures survive in the darkness of caves and deep underwater.

This week Elm Class have spoken about the role of archaeologist in history.  We wanted to find out how archaeologists work and the tools that they use. We prepared some objects for burial. Forests schools then buried our range of objects in the ground where we will leave them until the last week of term. We will then excavate them to see what remains and the changes that the materials have occurred. Recording the results as archaeologists.
