Hungry Little Minds

Many little things light up hungry little minds. Kids take everything in, and even the smallest things you do with them can make a big difference.

They love it when you chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything. Whatever the time and wherever you are, you can turn almost anything into a game.

And every little thing you do together will help set them up nicely for the day they start school.


Elm is a mixed class of Reception and Year 1. The class teachers are Ms Corwood (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Orchard (Wednesday to Friday). The teaching assistants are called Mrs Triggs, Miss Yeoman and Mrs Pearse. 
In Reception we use Letters and Sounds to learn our sounds to help us read and write. For individual reading we use the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme supplemented by a few other books. If you would like to know more then please ask the class teacher.
