Maple Class - Years 2,3,4
Maple class teachers are Miss Moore and Mrs Williams
Teaching Assistant are - Mrs Ray and Mrs Thurston
We have been taking part in lots of fun, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities.
We have been holding a hair dryer and trying to keep a ping pong ball up in the air. Archie even managed to keep two up which was really amazing!
We also investigated friction by moving jelly cubes that were covered in oil. It was really tricky!
Finally we explored what happens to pepper when it is in water and you dip your finger in when it is covered in washing up liquid. We found that it moves away which we were not expecting.
This week we were practising for our class assembly with Mrs Williams. We had lots of fun and hope that you enjoyed it! :)
We also started our work on symmetry in Maths. We used mirrors to complete reflective patterns.
We are looking forward to STEM week next week.
This week, we have been planning our very own chapter to be added to the story of 'The BFG'. We thought about the giants that we created at the beginning of the unit and have developed a new plot where they get up to lots of mischief! We have been enjoying writing the chapters over the course of this week.
We have been so inspired by the story that lots of children in our class have drawn pictures of the BFG at home. Miss Moore was so impressed that she has put some of these up on our working wall!
In Maths, we have begun to learn about mass and how to read scales in grams and kilograms. We have also thought about how to convert different measurements.
This week has been very exciting as we have begun reading Road Dahl's 'The BFG'! We have started to think about the character is descibed in the early chapters and we used noun phrases to write our own descriptions.
We then wrote recipes to explain how to make a meal for a big, friendly giant! We are looking forward to reading more next week and finding out what happens.
Wecome back and a Happy New Year!
We are looking forward to our new topic 'Famous People' where we will be learning about Kings and Queens this term.
We have already started drawing some pictures of famous monarchs.
On Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon we put on our Christmas productions. We all sang beautifully, spoke clearly and had lots of fun dancing our dances!
Here we are dressed and chilling before our performance
Here are a few pics and video of us
In class we have been busy making hats ready for our Christmas party. Some of them are very sparkly!

This week, we have been working very hard completing all of our assessments for the term. We have all tried our best and shown lots of resilience!
We have also been rehearsing the Christmas Production and practising our dances and lines ready for the shows next week.
