Autumn term.

Posted: Nov 2, 2023 by: Debbie Bagwell (dbagwell) on: Maple Class

We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming back children into school for our new school year. It’s been lovely to hear all about their summer adventures. This year we have welcomed one new pupil and one member of staff, Jane to our school. We have also been joined by pupils from Rowan class.


Maple class has lots of exciting learning planned for the Autumn Term. Our topic is ‘music across the decades’. We have already enjoyed listening to different pieces of music from the 1940’s all the way through to the 2020’s. Pupils have listened well and then decided whether they thought it was a hit, miss or a maybe. Our favourite so far has been Elvis Presley! In History, pupils have been impressing us with their amazing hand jive skills as we look back to the 1950’s.


In cookery Maple class have enjoyed making and eating a delicious apple pie. We have continued to learn and develop our life skills. The pupils have been weighing, peeling, rolling and chopping their ingredients.


In numeracy we have begun to learn about length. We used a stadiometer and measured our friends to find out their height. Pupils then looked at the results and decided who was the tallest through to the shortest in class. In addition, we have also been using a ruler to measure different objects.


During this term Maple class are very excited to be having their music lesson with Mrs Seddon, where we will be composing our own piece of music! We are also looking forward to creating our own junk model for recycling week.


Maple class has had a fantastic start to this academic year and we are looking forward to sharing our progress in future blogs!
