We are thrilled to be working with Maple Class this year in the fantastic upstairs classroom and outdoor terrace.
What a fabulous start we have had! Everyone in Maple Class has settled really well and we are now fully into our learning, finding out all about Scotland and writing our reports. The children have used their knowledge to generate headings to research and then used laptops to select appropriate information. Just ask them about the ingredients of a haggis!
In PE the children have been learning a Highland Dance with Miss Martin and I hope to be able to invite you all in before the end of term to see it. Everyone has also really settled well in Maths and the children are learning some really big numbers – Year 5 to a million! It’s great to see them use the Numicon, supplied by the PTA, as support as well as the Diennes apparatus.
Thank you for all your ongoing support for your child’s learning. Reading at home is one of the most valuable learning that a child can do; it helps to develop a child's love for books and generates ideas for independent writing. Children earn lots of House Points and rewards, too!
We hope that you all enjoyed our singing of the Harvest festival 'autumn round', which was a very special Maple performance indeed.
