Wonderful walk for Ascension Day

Yesterday Maple Class joined the rest of the school on their wonderful (but hot) walk up to Woodborough Hill. Once arrived the children listened to Reverend Larkey before tucking eagerly into their packed lunches.

Tag, hide and seek and other games followed before the descent back down and back to school. Not one child in Maple Class moaned that their legs hurt so well done to you all!


Canal Art

The children have enjoyed designing their own signs for a canal barge which will be on display shortly just outside Maple Class. They chose their names carefully and worked really hard on the lettering, making it 3D. They have a few final touches to add before they go on show.

The Dogs Trust- Evolution and Adaptation

This afternoon, Maple class enjoyed their workshop with Emily and Buster  from The Dogs Trust.

We enjoyed finding out about how dogs have evolved over the years and how important it is to think carefully before getting a dog as a pet. Mrs Needham was impressed with our listening skills and we asked some good questions.


Busy, busy, busy!

Since the start of this term we have been very busy ; starting our Canals topic and looking at life for the navvies, practising our throwing , catching and batting skills in PE and also revising lots of maths reading for our assessments.


Before we were let loose with a cricket bat, Mrs Needham asked us to demonstrate our throwing and catching skills. We played some fun games whilst doing this!

Mrs Needham was very impressed with our hand-eye coordination when we were given a cricket bat- 99% managed to hit the ball first time!


We enjoyed using rulers and metre sticks in our maths lesson to measure objects around the room- it had bee a little while since we had looked at measures but we got there in the end.


The Narrowboat signs are coming along nicely and we are looking forward to sharing these on a display just outside the classroom- watch this space!




Vehicle testing time!

On the last day of term the children added their final finishing touches to their vehicles and we carefully carried them outside to put them through their MOT test. Each group then took it turn to push their vehicle down the ramp outside Mrs Hobbs’ office to see which one travelled the furthest.

KS1 House Dodgeball competition

On Tuesday afternoon Sycamore and Maple Class joined forces for their term 4 ¬†house competition. They listened carefully and the rules were explained before getting stuck in with the games. All teams played very well and we’re looking forward to seeing who the overall winner is when the points are added to KS2 later this week.

Making us proud !

Well done to all of Maple Class for their amazing assembly this morning- for persevering despite the hiccup with the technology! Thank you too to all the parents who came along to see all their hard work. We will see some of you again at 2pm !
