Welcome to Maple Class!

 

A huge welcome to Maple class from Mr. Gachowicz and Miss. Claxton.

This term we are looking forward to learning about the Seaside and will link to studying a local area, Hunstanton. We will be learning through a creative topic-based way, writing rhyming poetry based on the seaside, narratives based on Ted Hughes' 'How the Whale Became' and persuasive writing, focused on the global issue of plastic pollution in the ocean. The children will continue to learn outdoors, looking at beach art and significant beach artists. This will be supported by a trip to Hunstanton. This term we will also be going on our residential trip to How Hill. 

We always try our best and will be learning lots of new skills in Maths and English. There will be a focus on practicing our tackling tables daily so we can become fluent in our times tables and mastering the inverse.

Reading remains important to us and we will be developing our analytical and synthesis skills through whole class guided and individual reads.

We will have PE twice a week so please ensure PE kits are at school. The children will continue to have recorder sessions on alternating weeks and Mount Amelia every Wednesday. Homework is due in on a Monday. For year 3, spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following week. 

We are very excited about this term!

As we enter the Summer term, we wanted to give you access to the weekly objectives that Maple class would have covered if school were open as normal. 

 

MAPLE CLASS WEEK 6 'HALF TERM' OBJECTIVES:

 

As it is 'half term' this week, we understand that some families will take a break from learning. However, we also know that some families would still like to add learning to their activities this week. So, please enjoy the activities you would like to do, from this weeks learning ideas.

Additional Work

Whilst the school is closed due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Miss. Claxton and myself will upload additional work on the Maple Class section of the school website. Please check in to see what has been added. These are very difficult times and we wish you all the best of health.

Weekly spellings have been added to SpellingShed. They will change every Monday. Practise your spellings in different ways and more importantly, put them into context by writing them in sentences/paragraphs. 

Reading and Comprehension

English/Writing

Use this link http://www.pobble365.com/. There is a new picture daily, if you scroll down each picture has a story starter and children can continue the story. They have had lots of practise at this through their early morning work. There are additional activities to do too such as questions to answer, pictures to draw, and sentences to improve which will build on their sentence work and grammar knowledge. Happy writing.
