Hello and Welcome to Elm Class 2021-2022!


Hello everyone and welcome to our class page!  We have just completed our first week and what a week it was.  I have been so impressed with how all the children have settled in so far and I am really looking forward to the year ahead :).


Please find below information that you will need to know throughout this year :).



PE will take place on a Friday morning. Please make sure your child has a PE Kit in school. Children are encouraged to leave their P.E kits in school throughout the whole of a half term as PE time slots are subject to change.  We will send them home at the end of a half term to be cleaned.  


Homework and Spelling

Homework will be set every Friday beginning on Friday 17th September.  The homework will be set on Google Classroom and should be completed by the following Thursday.  If you have any problems regarding homework, please don't hesitate to ask for help :).

Spellings are yet to start in year 3 but will do shortly.  More information will be given to you regarding this very soon.




At New Moston we take a great pride in reading and try to develop a love of reading in the children.  We would love this enthusiasm for reading to continue at home :).  Your child was recently sent home with two reading books.  Once your child has finished reading them, please bring them both back together and we will change them for two new ones.  There is no set date for return.  We expect the children to read at least three times a week at home and this should be recorded inside of your child's diary.

There are also rewards to be won by returning reading books for new ones, with stickers being added to the bookmark inside of your reading record.  When completed a reward will be earned!


Log In Information

Inside of your child's reading record are their log in information for TT Rockstars, Purple Mash and soon to be added Reading Eggs.  These can be found at the front of the reading record.  Please use these apps to support your child at home :).


If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask :).  You can catch me on the playgrounds most mornings or after school once the children have been dismissed.  Alternatively you can contact me through the class email address.

We are looking forward to a fantastic year!

Thank you,

Mr Darlington and Mrs Houghton
