Welcome to Maple class web page!
We are so proud of how well the children have settled into school this summer term - Go MAPLE!
We are so excited to get stuck into our learning theme work this term! We have already started our topic with a fun and crafty WOW Day! (Photos coming soon)!
Our learning theme is ‘Oh I do like to be by the seaside’.
In DT, we are going to be designers, this is where we will be making and evaluating sandwiches for Paddington Bear to enjoy at the beach.
In geography we will be explorers, looking at local coastlines, human and physical features and coastal maps.
As historians, we have already started learning about experiences we may have had if we visited the seaside 100 years ago! We will be comparing the similarities and differences.
As scientists, we will be exploring different habitats and which animals we might find living in certain habitats.
I am very excited for our last term of learning and I hope you are too!

Many children in Maple class will be doing their school work at home this week using Google Classroom, which the teachers will be adding work to every day. The teachers are working hard to make sure there are some fun and engaging English, maths, phonics and other lessons each day. Aim for your child to work for approximately 3 hours each day of the school week. (We have added a suggested time table to Google Classroom). Remember that reading is an important part of your home learning too!
Remember you have your home learning book which contains login details for your Google Classroom account, Bug Club activities and Times Table Rock stars. You must remember to join Maple Class when you first access your Google Classroom account. Everybody in the class has been invited to join this group already so this should be all set up and ready to go. This will be hopefully be up and running smoothly from Wednesday 6th January.
We will continue to follow the Early Phase curriculum. We will be following the key Maths and English curriculum.
This term our topics include:
- Learning theme – Heroes and Heroines
- Science – Weather
- Religious Education – Christianity
- Spanish, Music and Physical Education
We will also be suggesting online activities and games which support the curriculum, as well as setting fun daily challenges for you to enjoy at home.
We know that Maple children work hard and stay cheerful. You have all made us proud this year and we know you are going to do your best while learning at home!
Thanks for reading!

We love being in the Maple class
The children have settled back into school really well. Here are a few photos of our classroom. The children have their own places and their own wallets full of resources.
We also have a ladybird reading display that we will tell you more about very soon and our new dream jar display that the children enjoyed on their first day back.
