Little Elms Blog: Settling back into Little Elms

Wow, what a few months we have had! 

It's been an absolute joy to welcome the boys back into Little Elms. Since returning, we have been concentrating on our well-being and the people who help us. This is to support the boy’s understanding of the world around them, and the pandemic that they have just experienced. The boys have been taking part in small quiz games in teams, creating art pieces, and talking about their own experiences to further their knowledge and understanding. We have been working outside a lot more this term, firstly to allow us to adhere to the social distancing rules, but also so that we can enjoy the good weather! Lots of fresh air, beautiful sunshine and chatter has made our learning even more fun-filled than usual. 

As well as our wellbeing and people who help us themes, the boys have enjoyed creating amazing hearts and writing pieces for Father's Day and joining the rest of the school in up-cycling and discussing what makes us unique and important in response to ‘black lives matter’.

The boys have slotted back into their phonics and writing with ease and have come on leaps and bounds even though the routine has now changed. A massive thank you to all their carers for their support with this too, we could not have done this without you! 

Now, we look forward to the boys' big transition to Reception where I'm sure they will flourish and continue to grow as a wonderful, confident, and kind Elmhurst Boys.
