Welcome to Maple class!
We are learning
This term, we are learning all about the Great Fire of London and we are excited to research all aspects of this time in history.
In English, we are reading Winter’s Child by Angela McAllistar; such a beautifully written and illustrated book, that will help us generate ideas for our writing.
In Maths we are solving word, money and shape problems as well as developing our learning of measuring length and mass. Of course, we always welcome times table and division practice at home throughout the year.
In Science, we are investigating uses of everyday materials. We cannot wait to carry out experiments to understand how and why a certain material may or may not be suitable for particular use.
Homework is given out on Fridays and is collected the following Thursday. Each term we will send home a week by week planner for the spellings (tested on Fridays) and for the topic or English work. The maths will be sent home each week to match up with our learning.
This year Maple class have PE on a Tuesday and a Friday. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit including a top of their house team’s colour and clean socks. These will be sent home each half term to be washed and returned back.
The children’s books are changed every Wednesday afternoon. They need to put their reading book and reading record in the box by the door if they would like to have it changed. Unfortunately if they forget to put their book in the box we may not always be able to change it as we have a very busy timetable.
If you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick your child up is the best time. Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Bennett and Mrs Golding
