Welcome to Maple Class!
We are the youngest in the school and have had a fantastic start to school life so far! There are 15 of us in Maple class and we love learning with Mrs Cooper, our teacher, and Mrs Langran, our teaching assistant. So far this year we have been making news friends, settling into school life, and have already learnt so much since September. We really enjoyed visiting our local church to celebrate Harvest, joining in with prayers and performing a song for everyone-we felt very proud to be part of the service!
We are learning new sounds every day and have started to apply them in ways that interest us. Some children have written labels, made scary pop up books based on Jack and the beanstalk, labelled our seeds that we planted, and written about our photographs from home.
We love our 'Magic Maths' group times where we have already learnt about ordering numbers to 20, 2D shapes and their properties, and explored how to measure height.
In Maple class we love to learn through play and follow our own interests as much as possible. This makes our days very exciting as we never know where our ideas might take us! We have explored floating and sinking by making our own boats, which came from our interest in pirates. As we notice the changes happening around us during Autumn we have learnt about the seasons, created art work based on the colours of Autumn and made observational drawings of pumpkins. Our interest in giants and fairy tales was sparked by an exciting flap book we shared based on visiting a giants castle! At the moment we are loving making our own books based around this theme.
We hope you enjoy looking through our page to find out more about what we have been learning in Maple class so far...
