Welcome to Maple class 2017-2018
We are a mixed class of 23 year 4's and 6 years 5's. We have 2 adults that work in our class, Mr Benjafield our teacher and Miss Jones, our teaching assistant.
To find out what exciting things we are learning this half term, please see our curriculum news letter below.
We have had a brilliant start to the year, kicked off by a visit from the BFG!! He was able to help us write our Meeting Tale for our first English unit.
Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt and recently we had a visit from the Heritage Center. We did some fantastic activities, such as archaeological digs, painting scarab beetles and Egyptian bread making, which we then took home to bake. We had such a brilliant morning!
We have done some fantastic Ancient Egypt homework! We had to choose out of a list of tasks and we were able to be really creative, which we loved!
We voted for our school council this half term and we challenged our candidates to give a speech to the class about why we should vote for them. They were all brilliant and showed great perseverance and determination. Our winners were Harry Smith and Daisy Nisbet.
