Maple Class have enjoyed a very busy and exciting Summer Term. We have continued to learn about the seven continents in the world by making African jewellery and masks. In music we have listened to a variety of songs from around the world and decided whether it was a 'Hit, Miss or Maybe'.
Maple Class have continued to enjoy making delicious food in cooking. We have made foods from different continents, including onion bhaji's and scones. The pupils then enjoyed the scones with jam and cream.
In Science pupils have chosen and explored a variety of objects, then proceeded to make a prediction as to whether it would float or sink. We recorded our predictions and were interested to see the results. We have also learnt about density and carried out practical experiments.
In Maths pupils have been very busy learning about time and 3D shapes. Sensory learners have enjoyed choosing shapes and then exploring them.
All of Maple Class were very excited to be in the school play, “Once Upon a Fairytale”, where they were happy to see family and familiar people in the audience, watching them perform. Pupils played different roles from the Disney film “Aladdin”.
We are thankful to South Ribble Borough Council Sports Development, who visited school on numerous occasions to teach us this year’s dance for “Dance from the Heart”. For the main event we even had a visit from Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Elsa! Some of our pupils have also been on the school trip to Hothersall Lodge, where they have enjoyed taking part in various outdoor and indoor activities.
We hope that you all have a lovely summer and we look forward to welcoming all the pupils back in September.
