Welcome to Maple Class!

 Hello, my name is Mrs Thomas and I will be teaching Maple Class this year; with the support of Mrs Talbot and Mrs Murray.

We are starting the second half of Autumn Term with our exciting topic:

Healthy Me!

We will be exploring the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. We will be asking the question:

What does our body need to keep us healthy?

During the project, the children will be exploring food groups and why each food group is needed to keep our bodies healthy. The children will also be creating their own healthy food product.


Please check the class blog, weekly, for updates from the children on what they have been learning that week.


Also, if you haven't already, please follow us on Twitter @longshawinfants to keep up with all the exciting things happening at school.


Reading books

It is important that your child's book bag is in school every day. Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read. You do not need to read the whole book at once. 



Homework will be given out every Friday reflecting the children's learning that week. Please ensure homework is back in school by Thursday to ensure homework can be issued the following Friday.



Please make sure that every piece of clothing that comes into school has your child's name on it so that if it does get lost or misplaced it can be easily returned. 



We have two P.E sessions every week, including a specialist FUNDA session. Please make sure your child has their P.E kits in school throughout the term. 


 Thank you!



If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to me after school. 


Thank you for your continued support, 


Mrs Thomas
