Another fantastic term in Maple Class!
The children are really enjoying their learning and it is so pleasing to see that they are taking pride in the quality of their handwriting. All the work on their home learning is shining through in the improvement in spelling and the children have become very independent using dictionaries and wordbanks.
Two new initiatives have had a significant impact on learning this term. These have been provided with the support of the PTA and they are the Mathletics computer program and the Comprehension Boxes. Both initiatives allow the children to independently follow up their learning within the class and the children have thoroughly enjoyed using them. A big ‘thank you’ to the PTA for their continued support!
The recent visit to the Etches Collection in Kimmeridge was brilliant. The children loved the interactive learning in the Education Room as well as being guided around the collection by the staff. Another ‘big thank’ you to the adult helpers who supported us. Without parents giving up their time to help, such learning could not take place and it is very much appreciated.
We are all now looking forward to the Summer Term, with lots of exciting topics lined up, such as the wonderful Katie Morag's 'Island Life' stories.
Thank you for your continued support with your children’s learning and we wish you a very Happy Easter!
Mr Paxton and Mrs Wey
