Fantastic Flash Mob

What a brilliant day we’ve had in Maple Class today.  This morning we took part in a Where the Wild Things Are flash mob dance to open the Marlborough Literature Festival.  We really enjoyed this and thank you to all the parents who stayed to watch our second performance.  I’m sure you’ll agree that all the children were simply brilliant.

In the afternoon we enjoyed some well deserved down time!

Special Delivery

This week we’ve been learning a text map before we begin planning and writing our letters next week.  The Wicked Witch has turned the Jolly Postman into a toad and he has asked us to convince her to change him back.  Here we are learning our text map with actions and reading some letters delivered by the Jolly Postman.

In maths we’ve been busy mastering place value and we’re using finding out all the different ways that we can represent numbers and partition them.

In topic we learnt about the different types of house there are.  We enjoyed sharing pictures of our houses and we’ll be showing some of our topic work in School Meeting tomorrow.

We’re still working our way through all the postcards we received over the summer holidays and Mrs Johanson has been taking us to lots of places via Google Earth.

Wonderful Writing

This morning in phonics we recapped the ‘oy’ sound.  Here are some of our sentences with words that have ‘oy’ in them.

In English our Word of the Week is ferocious and we all wrote brilliant sentences so it was hard for Mrs Johanson to choose three for the blog.  Can you spot our exclamation sentences?

Marvellous Maths

Yesterday in maths we used the bead strings and other resources to help us count and represent different 2-digit numbers.

In the afternoon we had our Woodland learning on the school field.  We collected a variety of different coloured leaves so we can make our own Maple leaf collages out of the leaves we found.  We look forward to showing you them when they’re finished.


Our First Day in Maple Class

Hello and welcome to Maple Class blog for 2017-2018.

This morning we returned to school eager and ready to learn.  We had our first maths lesson where we were counting objects up to 100 and we enjoyed working in our new maths books.  After lunch we got changed into our PE kits in a speedy 3 minutes and 4 seconds and we started learning a dance for a performance in Marlborough later this month (more details to follow).

After this we started designing our front covers for our topic this term ‘Welcome to SN9 5PL’.  We had to think of things that are located in Woodborough and draw them.

Mrs Johanson and Mrs Taylor have started giving out reading books and all of us will have one tomorrow.
