Welcome to Maple Class Page!
Miss Nicol and Mrs Stevenson really enjoy working with the lovely Year 2 class in Maple.
We are learning
This term, we are learning all about Living on an Island and we will be investigating the plants and animals that live on different islands around the world..
In English, we are using a range of books, videos and pictures to inspire our writing. We are also making links between our learning and writing to inform in our science and topic lessons.
In Maths we are learning to tell the time, identify properties of shapes and revise our number knowledge.
In Science, we are investigating plants and animals. We cannot wait to research things which are living, dead or non-living and we are excited to learn about plants and animals we might find in different countries.
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.
It is our turn to visit the exciting forest school! We will be going to forest school on a Tuesday afternoon so please ensure your child has full length trousers, a long sleeved top, welly boots or old trainers, a sun hat and a rain coat. They are not allowed to go to forest school in any of their school clothes (including shoes and coat).
Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Ms Nicol and Mrs Stevenson
