The Scented Garden - Spring term

When we came back to school after our Christmas holiday something amazing had happened...

A beanstalk appeared!

We will explore the story 'Jack and the baked beanstalk' and plan and write our own alternative versions.

We followed instructions to make play dough. We then used our sense of smell to change the scent of our play dough!

Christmas celebrations

We have learnt about Christingle.

Christmas story cafe

On Monday 11th December Elm class had their Autumn term story cafe. 

We read the story 'A letter to Santa'

We magpied ideas from the text and wrote our own letters to Santa, we have taken them home to post! 


A big thank you to everyone who was able to come along!


Beat, Band Boogie!

We explored the rhyme 'The Grand Old Duke of York'. Children sequenced events from the rhyme. 



We reported on the incidents in the rhyme for our class newspaper! We used thesauruses to find new, ambitious vocabulary! 



We read the beginning of 'The Tin Soldier' 

We predicted what we thought might happen next, we planned and recorded our own version of the story! 

We used the working wall, and other things around the classroom to help us with our story writing.




Happy Halloween from The Elm class!


We read 'Room on the Broom' by Julia Donaldson.


We planned and created our own potion poems!

We helped Winnie the witch make a magic potion to create a new broomstick.

We visited the super scary supermarket and used only scary ingredients!




Towers, tunnels and turrets.

 This half term we have been learning about castles and castle life. 

We have been using non-fiction texts to help us find out information and interesting facts. 


In History we learnt all about William the Conqueror and The Battle of Hastings! 

We used hot seating to ask William the Conqueror questions and find out more about him. 

We know lots of fun facts about him! 


We went on a trip to Framlingham castle, we explored the castle grounds.
