Welcome to Maple Class!
I am Mrs Thomas and I am your teacher in Maple Class. We are very lucky to also have Mrs Riley and Miss Tudda supporting us this year.
After a very strange end to your time in Year 1, I do hope you are excited and eager to start your time in Year 2. I am very much looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you. We will be doing many lovely activities and having lots of amazingly awesome adventures this year!
Our year is going to begin with looking at ourselves and asking the question:
'What can I do to keep myself healthy?'.
We will be exploring what our body needs and how we can care for our body and mind. WE will learn what it is a human needs to survive and apply this learning to other animals. We will also be looking at the different main food groups.
In art, we will learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers. We will then create our own masterpiece.
In maths, we will be focussing on place value and the 4 main operations
*add *take away *multiply *divide
We will also be reading a wide range of quality books as a class. To start our year, I have chosen a book from my favourite author, Roald Dahl.
'The Twits' is a funny story and I think it will fit in well as we have lots of fun getting to know each other.
I am really excited to embark on our Maple Class journey together!
Here are a few reminders for your adults:
- Please read with your child each night and sign their reading record (tip: try to engage in the story and ask your child questions, this unlocks their understanding and passion for reading)
- Reading books are expected in school daily.
- PE kits need to be brought into school and they will be kept here until the end of term
Thank you for your support.
