Maple Class

 Maple Class!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to our class page. I hope you have all had a lovely half term break.

Spring 2

This half term our topic is ‘The Great Fire of London’. In this topic, we will study the history of the Great Fire of London. We will be learning about how London has changed and the events of the great event. We will also be drawing on our knowledge from last half term and thinking about how materials of homes have changed since the great fire.

In English, we will be looking at the story ‘Grandad’s Island’ by Benji Davies. The children will write their own return narrative and a non-chronological report on a rainforest animal.

In Maths, we will be reviewing our operations (addition, subtraction and multiplication). We we then move onto division and fractions. Your child should have a TT Rockstars login and password. Please could you encourage them to play the game as many times as they can to improve their times tables knowledge.

Our Art work will be based on the artist ‘Augustin Edouart’ and his silhouette and portrait art work. The children will design and create a silhouette painting of the Great Fire of London.

In RE we will be learning about Judaism: What do Jews believe about God?

The children will have a daily PE lesson for 30 minutes. You do not need to bring a PE kit in, as the children will wear their school uniform for PE. However, if you have a spare pair of trainers that can be left in school, please send them in with your child.

Homework will be set each Friday and must be completed by the Friday of the following week. Phonics books will be sent home with your child on a Monday and Friday so please ensure that your child is reading every day to improve their reading skills.

After half term, we will continue with our zoom lessons starting at 8:45AM. I have attached a copy of our timetable, incase you have forgotten when each lesson begins. I am looking forward to starting our next half term and I will hopefully see you all very soon.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me or arrange for a time to have a phone call/google meet.
