This week, Maple have enjoyed having a cricket experience session with a cricket teacher! We practised different cricket skills in rotations: hitting balls with bats, practising of catching and throwing and trying to throw balls over, under and in between obstacles. We had so much fun!

Maple have had an exciting time learning about 'The Great Fire of London'. We have created our very own timeline of the events and even interviewed Samuel Pepys!

Maple have had fun creating their own art gallery for their Artic animals! We were extremely lucky as continuing with the theme it started to snow. We loved creating our animals out of clay and making textures using different tools.

In Maths in Maple class we have been learning clever counting by adding 9 to a 2-digit number. We used the method of adding 10 and then subtracting 1. We have made our own blank number lines to help us.

'Welcome to the Arctic' Guided Reading

This week during guided reading we have been reading the book 'Welcome to the Arctic'. We discussed the features of a glossary and made our own using key words and phrases. 

History of Printing Day

Maple Class has enjoyed learning about how printing has developed from William Caxton with the early printing press to the invention of the World Wide Web. The children created timelines and took part in printing activities some of which were edible! They thought about how creating books has changed and become a much easier process. A class book review was written and the children explored how to safely use the Internet to share our learning.
Welcome to Maple Class from Miss Mason and Mrs Postlethwaite.

Guy Fawkes

We have really enjoyed learning about Guy Fawkes and 'The Gunpowder Plot'. We developed our skills of asking and answering questions about the events leading up to the capture of Guy Fawkes and the celebration which took place after. We have been busy exploring how music is created, produced and communicated through composing and creating a musical piece to pictures of fireworks. We hope you enjoy listening to our sound track of firework music.
