Welcome to Maple!

From Miss Ibrahim & Mrs Meakes

Welcome to Maple Class,


This week we have been very busy learning the songs for our Christmas show, the children continue to make a super effort and we are having lots of fun!


In English we have been innovating our model text, The Gingerbread Man, in preparation for planning our own versions of the tale. Mrs Meakes and I have really enjoyed reading the children’s innovations. We have had characters such as The Pizza Man, The Pancake Lady and The Cupcake Girl running away from characters like a little girl and an old man and meeting a variety of animals along the way. It’s been wonderful to see the children feeling confident and excited to write! Alongside writing our innovations we have been continuing to find clues as to where to the Gingerbread Man might be hiding. A few weeks ago, some of the children made a trap for him during ‘Discovery Time’ and it was a lovely surprise to see that the Gingerbread Man wrote us a note overnight and ate the orange we had left for him!


In Maths, we have been looking at part-whole models and in our ‘Quick Maths’ lessons we have been using ‘stem sentences’ to help us compare objects. Today we had an excellent discussion about how we could make two groups of apples equal. ‘Quick Maths’ is a favourite lesson amongst lots of children in Maple Class, made even more exciting this week with special visitors, Miss Teddy and Mr Dog.


This week in ‘Discovery Time’ we have concluded our Geography topic, Around our school. A popular ‘station’ this week has been our ‘Investigation Station’ where the children have been looking at a variety of maps and navigating themselves around the classroom using a compass.  Our challenge, to draw a map of your journey from your home to school, saw some great drawings and even included some landmarks too.


As we move closer through the term Mrs Meakes and I would like to thank you for your continued support with daily reading and Numbots and we look forward to sharing our singing and dancing at our Key Stage 1 Christmas production, Hey Ewe!
