Welcome to Maple Class!


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

In the Autumn term we are looking forward to learning about Anglo-Saxon Britain, where they came from, where they settled and how they lived their lives. We will be learning through a creative topic-based way, writing instructions on how to safely make a fire just like the Anglo-Saxons and learning the importance of safety around fire, poetry in the form of Anglo-Saxon Kennings and retelling the epic Beowulf. The children will continue to learn outdoors and we will build Anglo-Saxon round houses as well as develop our understanding of place value using natural materials. Through an enquiry-based approach, we will investigate forces and magnetism looking at the forces which act upon the world and design toys using magnets. 

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 as well as regular arithmetic work to master the four operations. There will be catch-up provision ensuring we are confident in our number work. 

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 indoor and outdoor PE kits are at school. Spellings will be set and tested weekly and can be accessed on SpellingShed. Homework will be set weekly.

We are very excited about this term!

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.
