In maple class we like to enjoy every moment. We work together as a team to create a kind, focussed environment where we can all learn, progress and develop our skills across the curriculum. Maple Class are our Year 3 and 4 children and, as we move into Key Stage 2 we build on the skills acquired in Key Stage 1, learning to apply these across an increasingly sophisticated and varied curriculum.

Library

Maple Class have a library session every Tuesday. So please remember to bring in library books on this day so that they can be exchanged. In LKS2 the children are able to take home one library book at a time if they would like to. These are scanned in and out of our library and chidlren must bring them back, they can be re-scanned for another week should they wish to keep them!

 

PE

PE kits should be available in school every day but this term our usual PE sessions will take place on Tuesday. Please ensure that you include a  pair of socks for your child to change into and also ensure that they have plimsols or trainers at school on rainy days and long leggings or tracksuit bottoms during the winter months. 

On Thursday afternoons, Year 4 Maple class will be taking part in swimming lessons. Please ensure that your child brings a costume, towel and goggles for these sessions in a bag.

POETRY PERFORMANCE

The children worked together in groups tp perform a poem. They were working on their tone, volume and expression and trying to add hand gestures body language and actions to engage the audience. Every child in class had a go which was lovely to see! I think they all did amazing! :)

MATHS OPEN DAY

The children worked together in pairs alongside their grown ups for the morning. We investigated how we could present data in different ways, using Tally Charts, Tables, Bar charts and pictograms. The children were given data information about the life expectancy of Stone age men and women, Victorian men and women and Present day men and women. They were able to manipulate the data to draw up their own graphs and charts and then we answered questions about the data to aid our understanding of how and why the average life expectancy of men and women changed over the last 50,000 years. 

FRENCH PUPPET CONVERSATIONS

The children have created their own finger puppets and then made their own conversations between the puppets to greet each other, introduce themselves and ask how each other are in French. They all did extremely well and were great at their tone and intonation after learning our mouth mechanics. 

PERFECT PE PATTERNS

The children worked in pairs,  chose one of four electrical circuits patterns and used different ways of travelling to re-create this on the floor. They could walk, jog, skip or gallop, then included changes to the way they were facing whilst travelling around the circuit. Once complete, they moved onto a different circuit pattern, finally showing one of their patterns to the rest of the class for them to guess which circuit they were re-creating.
