Elm Tree's Online Journal 


We are so proud to see one of our children collecting food to deliver to those in need! He's also been baking and doing his very own science experiments - look at his Victoria Sponge Cake and Fossil digging!  




 It has been excellent to see one of our children growing his own plant at home! He has also been creating his very own island on Animal Crossing with his dad and over Easter, has been baking Gingerbread Cookies! Well done!




Some of our children have been hard at work during their time at home! But they have still made time to sit in the garden and look at all the wonderful wildlife coming to life on a beautiful sunny day. Look at this colourful butterfly that they managed to spot!




Over the past week, we have seen so many young people putting rainbows in their windows to make us all smile. We are so impressed to see our children taking part in this! Look at this fabulous rainbow and brilliant message, 'Stay Safe'. After all that hard work, there's even time to relax on a swing and read a good book! 




 It has been great to see so many of our children getting involved in the Joe Wicks PE lessons! These start at 9am every day and can be found on YouTube. Keep going boys!




 With everyone spending so much more time at home, we have definitely seen a lot of creative ideas! From making their own games to science experiments, our children have surprised us every day! Take a look at one of them making their very own 'Elastic Band Shooting' game. You can see the targets and even the score board! 




With school being closed, we have seen so many professional bakers putting their skills to good use! We can't wait for you to share some of these recipes when you're back at school!




A special message from Mr Lamb! Friday 3rd April



It has been great to see our children going above and beyond over the Easter break to support their local communities. Take a look below at the amazing work of one of our pupils. He has spent the Easter holidays donating food, goods and supplies to vulnerable people and community services, bringing a smile to everyone's face as he goes. He has even been awarded an Everyday Heroes certificate from BBC North West and is now an official volunteer in the local community! If that wasn't amazing enough - he has even been featured in the Lancashire Post and noticed for all his hard work and brilliant contributions during this difficult time. You can read the article by clicking here. It is safe to say everyone at Elm Tree are extremely proud of him and can't wait to hear more about his volunteering adventures when school reopens. 


It is great to see so many of our children making use of their daily allowed exercise and getting outside. One of our children has even helped raise baby chicks over Easter whilst making sure to save some time to play with his sisters and explore the great outdoors - a great way to spend Easter and enjoy Spring!


We are still seeing so many great home baked goods! Take a look at what one child has been creating whilst at home. From Hedgehog Cakes to Moshi Monster Bread Rolls - these creations are so impressive! He has also made time to have a break from baking to go outside and put his metal detector to good use! 


Over the Easter, one of the children had been set a challenge by their dad to design and create a four wheeled vehicle. As you can see from the picture below, he designed it all on paper first and then created the car using Connex! It's great to see so many children staying creative at home! Keep up the good work.


So many children have been impressing us with their dedication to school work during this time! Here is a couple of photographs of one of our pupils keeping up with his reading and maths at home. Please remember, there are plenty of resources on the school website's coroanvirus information page if you are struggling to find activities for your child. 


One of our children has created a brilliant presentation, full of really useful information about coronavirus and what we can do to protect ourselves during this time. We are so proud to see so many Elm Tree children doing everything they can to get the important message of safety across whilst at home. 

Please click here to take a look at the presentation!

We hope everyone had a fantastic half term and enjoyed all the lovely weather. It has been great receiving so many pictures of you all enjoying the sunshine. One of our amazing pupils has continued fundraising over the half term and all together has now raised a WHOPPING £800!! We are so so proud and cannot believe how hard he has worked! He has even been featured in the Lancashire post once again with a story about his life in lockdown! You can read the full article here. In addition to all the fundraising, he has even made time to enjoy the sun in the garden playing with fake snow! Take a look at these great pictures below.


Here is another one of our pupils definitely making the most of lockdown! From homemade McDonalds to walks in the park and building with Lego - it has been great to see these pictures! He has even made time to fit in school work! Keep up the hard work!

This week it has been great to see one of our pupils still keeping up with his Joe Wicks workout every day! 


Another pupil has really enjoyed adventuring around the lake, looking for tadpoles and other wildlife. He even saw 11 baby ducklings and a mean heron hiding in the trees! What a great way to enjoy the sunshine!


We have even had one of our pupils send to school their brilliant answers to last weeks quiz in assembly. Keep an eye out for the answers in this weeks assembly to see if you are right!


One of our children has been helping his sister with her homework this week! It was all about travel so they set up their very own passport control and took turns in going on holiday to Spain! This is such a brilliant idea!
