Welcome to Maple Class 2018 - 2019
Maple Class this year is a mix of Year 2 and Year 3 children.
Our teacher is Mrs Yockney and we are supported by Mrs Cole, Mrs Robertson and Mrs Bowley-Booth.
We are an energetic, enthusiastic bunch with a thirst for learning.
Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays - please could you ensure that your child brings PE kit in ready to change on Mondays and wears their kit to school on Wednesdays.
On Tuesday mornings the class is taught by Mrs Graham as this is Mrs Yockney's deputy time, on Wednesdays they have Mrs Graham followed by Mason for PE.
We would like to ask if any parent has time to offer support in class with reading, times tables, spellings or anything else please feel free to contact either Mrs Y or the school office. In particular if anyone could spare 10 minutes at drop off to hear one or two readers (we need the practice) we would be very grateful.
We began the term looking at Stanley Spencer's paintings and taking a trip to The Sandham Memorial Chapel in Burghclere. Our focus was 'Camp at Karasuli', we explored the painting looking very closely at the detail and information it gave us about life of a soldier in WW1. At Sandham the children were amazed at the sheer size of the paintings - very much an awe and wonder moment.
Back in school we cut up a copy of the original painting; each child was given a piece to reproduce and then we pieced them back together like a jigsaw puzzle.
