What Is In The Box?


This week we have been thinking scientifically making a prediction and testing hypothesis about what was in the mystery box. Children verbalised their answers based on their knowledge of what it could be. A lot of children thought that it was a ball but thought it was too heavy to be a ball. Other children thought it was a weight. It was a frozen water balloon as we were learning about changing states of matter. 

We have also written our 'Big Write' stories that are about a fictional character who finds themselves lost in the sea. We were throughly impressed with some of the creative ideas they came up with throughout the past few weeks. 

Miss Groves has built on some of the ideas we discussed last week in Art looking at surrealism and will hopefully be working with the Children of Maple on developing their creativity and understanding of the subject in the coming weeks. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Salvador Dali


This week we have consolidated our knowledge of addition and subtraction throughout the week and developing different methods to solve these. We have continued to build on our vocabulary and dialogue surrounding an adventure story. This will aid our writing next week. We also looked at the artist Salvador Dali and had an our first attempt at some surrealism. 

Have a good weekend,

Happy New Year and welcome back, we hope you had a lovely break and have recovered from all the festivities. As promised before the break we have awarded several E.R.I.C awards for effort in reading over the holidays. As voted by the children of Maple class we are now reading 'The Ice Monster' as our class book. The children have settled back in nicely to a routine of work and have made a positive start. Let's hope that continues throughout the term. Homework this week is Maths and handwriting and is due in on Thursday 16th January, any problems please let us know before then.

See You Next Year!


A huge thank you to the parents for their generous gifts this year. I haven't set homework for the holidays but have challenged the children to read 10 times and I will give them a full ERIC! 

Enjoy the rest and see you in 2020!

Christmas Is Coming!



This week as we get closer to Christams a lot of our work is themed around Christmas. Next week, we will be building and making an eletrical light up Christmas Tree.Unfortunately more than a few children missed their golden time this week as they had not done their homework again. If your child is struggling with the homework please let me know as we can help them in class. Homework will be in on Thursday next week and holiday homework will be set then. 

Have a lovely weekend,

What We Have Been Learning About!


The past two weeks have been great, 

We have learned what goes on a healthy plate, 

We have studied the Romans, 

and learned what it is to be humans. 


We have learned that bones keep you strong, 

If you don't believe us you are wrong, 

We have counted up to subtract, 

We have also learned to count back, 


In English we have been brushing up on our poetry, 

As well as learning that not all past tense verbs end in ed, 

Meanwhiile in PE we are learning how to move safely, 

Because Mr Holmes says that in the classroom we are too noisy, 


We've learned lots of French words for food,

However Mr Holmes can't pronounce them any good, 

in the coming weeks we want to show,

Just how much we can grow, 


Mr Holmes.
