Maple class

Welcome to Maple Class Page!

Miss Nicol, Mrs Stevenson and Miss Bedoe really enjoy working with the lovely Year 2 class in Maple.

We are learning

We are learning all about Kenya. We have used the book Lila and the Secret of Rain for inspiration and have completed lots of research. So far we have found out all about the animals in Kenya, begun to explore where Kenya is and thought about the habitats we would find there.

This learning links to both our science (Living things and their habitats) and our topic (Where on Earth?).

We are looking forward to our Christmas Performance of Babushka on the 18th and 19th December! We have sent home a letter about the costume your child will need to bring in and everybody has the lines they need to learn. It would be fantastic if you could support your child learning their lines ready for our performance.


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. It would be fantastic if every child could bring in a full PE kit including a top of their house team’s colour and clean socks.

The children’s books are changed every Friday 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.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at

If you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick your child up is the best time. 

Thank you for your continued support.
