Welcome to Elm class
This term Elm class have been learning:
Cooking: we have made savoury muffins. Each week the pupils evaluated the two core flavourings and decided as a group what the next flavours should be.
Computing: we have learnt about position and direction. We used a programable robot ‘beebot’ to input commands to. Some pupils also learnt about drag and drop coding.
Our topic was keeping clean and healthy. We learnt how to wash our hands effectively, about different ways to keep clean and made our own deodorant. We learnt about healthy and unhealthy foods. We also learnt that our pants are private.
Gardening: We have been planting spring flowering bulbs such as tulips and some bulbs to attract bees and butterflies as part of the incredible edible project. We are also currently chitting our potatoes which we will plant in bags next week.
Creativity (with Sharon): We are learning about different emotions and how our faces can show how we feel. We have created clay gargoyle faces.
We have attended the Secondary Penathlon at Sandylands Sports centre and took part in Chinese new year activities in the hall.
