Welcome to Maple Class!

Mrs Harris and Mrs Reinman welcome you and the children to Maple Class. 

We have an exciting term ahead of us, which we will start by basing our learning on the same text as every other class the school; A Mouse Called Julian by Joe Todd-Stanton. 

Between September and January we will base our English learning and much of our Science, Art, DT, Geography and History learning on three quality texts. You know the title of one of them but I'm keeping the others a surprise...for now!

I'm looking forward to teaching Science in which we will be studying living things and their habitats followed by animals including humans. In this second unit we will be learning about teeth and the digestive system.

I hope to be cooking in DT by Christmas but this is dependent on being Covid-19 safe and following Government guidelines so no promises! I could always set it for homework!
