World Book Day
For World Book Day this year, we ventured to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for a day of spells, potions, owls and magic!
The children made a great effort with their costumes too!
Museum of Somerset Anglo Saxon Day
Maple Class children had a fantastic day at The Museum of Somerset learning all about Alfred the Great and how and where the Anglo Saxons lived in Somerset, as well as writing in Anglo Saxon runes. They also learnt about the Alfred Jewel, an Anglo Saxon artefact discovered in Somerset, and had a go at making their own replicas.
Last week, Maple Class went to Stowey Woods to help Stowey Green Spaces plant some trees. The aim of the project is to plant over 400 types of trees that are native to Britain, some of which are now very rare. Maple Class worked hard and showed some great team work in order to plant a tree each - including some Maple trees!
Happy New Year!
Welcome back, Maple Class!
We are set to have a very busy, exciting term which should hopefully involve getting out and about quite a bit too. Please see the attached class newsletter, and keep an eye out for further letters regarding this soon.
October Half Term Homework
Although there is no formal written homework this half term, the children's homework is to ensure that they get their 'three reads' over the week. This means either reading to an adult who can then sign their reading record, or reading to themselves and asking an adult to sign their record to show this. We are a class full of super readers so I look forward to seeing which books the children have enjoyed over the break!
Parent's Afternoon 23/10/18
We look forward to welcoming parents into Maple Class at 3pm on Tuesday 23rd October to have a look at the work and activities the children have been doing this half term!
