Wellbeing. Our 'feeling trees' help us to express our emotion. The higher up the tree we place our emotional weather, the stronger we are feeling excitement, concern, happiness, etc.

Can you work out which everyday classroom items were used to make these sounds?


We had great fun trying them out. Some of the sounds were quite surprising!

Autumn Term 1 2020


We have settled into our new routines with a timetable that includes regular events.

Monday - Mrs. Glass will put the spelling lists onto Google classroom for each group.

Tuesday - P.E.

Friday - Mrs. Howe will test the spellings and times table knowledge.

            - P.E.

We expect the children to read every day at home and practice their spelling words and recall of times table facts. Writing them down as well as saying them out loud is important.

Time Travel stories

These are the stories that Maple have developed over the last week of term. It has included story line creation, stage production, scenery construction, sound effect manipulation, family coercion and performance.

Welcome to Maple Class!

Years 3 and 4



Welcome to Maple class, we hope you all had a lovely summer and are ready for a busy term.


Useful information

  • Children will bring home a new reading record which can be used to show their thoughts about the books they read. There is also space for parents/carers to add comments after the children have read to them.
  • PE days this term are mostly on Tuesday and Friday. However plans can change and having a PE kit in school for the week is always a good idea.
  • Forest school will be on Thursday when the children will need full length trousers and long sleeved shirts as well as wellies and waterproofs.


On the web class page are documents related to homework and what the children will be learning this term.

If you have any ideas for our class page, please let us know!
