First week back in Maple
We have had a jam-packed week this week!
We have been working on directions in maths so have been outside a lot directing our friends to different things and around obstacles.
It was a good job we have been practising this because Mrs Jones got lost in the playground on Friday so we used our knowledge to direct her back to the classroom.
On Thursday, not only did we have swimming but we also had a sports day practice, which was very successful, and the children showed great sportsmanship cheering each other on and supporting their classmates.
After all that swimming and running the children deserved some down time so at afternoon break we had a fruit ice lolly which was very welcome in the heat!
In science we have been learning about what is happening to wildlife at this time of year by observing the birds on the Springwatch wildlife cams and the Wild Academy programme. This is freely available on BBC iplayer so you can watch at any time. We counted how many times the blue tits fed their chicks in 5 minutes. Safe to say it was more than 20!
The weather forecast is still due to be sensational for at least the next week so please make sure that your child has suncream, a hat and water bottle for this time of year.
In their PE kits the children will need their purple t-shirts and black shorts so they don’t overheat outside.
Have a great weekend!
Mrs Coe and Mrs Jones
