Welcome to Maple Class  
There are 27 children in our class and Miss Needham and Mrs Dann are our class teachers. Miss Needham works Mon, Tues and Weds and Mrs Dann works Thurs and Fri. Other adults that work with us are Mrs Ellis, Miss James and Miss Zoppi. Every Wednesday afternoon we will have German, art, or RE.

 

Topic 

Our topic this term is Horror. We will be exploring the genre of suspense and writing our very own spooky story based on the book Night of the Gargoyles by Eve Bunting. To bring this to life, we will be visiting Lincoln Cathedral ( 09/10/18). In Science we are looking at the “gory “ parts of our body eg –the digestive system and intestine. The use of Virtual Reality will enhance the children’s first- hand experiences. Through the DARE project the children will investigate drug awareness and the effects these have on the body. Where possible, all other curriculum areas will be linked to the topic.

P.E. takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays but there is always the chance for extra sessions so it is recommended that your child keeps a P.E. kit here for the half term.

Homework:

Homework is given out every Friday and handed in on Wednesdays. There is weekly mathletics homework, reading tasks and spellings. Sometimes topic tasks will be sent home too with a slightly longer time to complete. It is also expected that we read regularly and sign our diaries to show this. 

Mathletics

Every child in school has access to the 'Mathletics' website. This is a safe and secure website which helps every child to raise their achievement in mathematics. It has lots of fun activities which will motivate you and encourage you to enjoy maths.
