Welcome to Maple Class!

It is the start of a new year and we are all extremely excited to have moved up to the Juniors and looking forward to the year ahead. We have lots of exciting things planned and we can't wait to get stuck in to our new learning!

Our theme this year will be Survivors, which will be broken down into three main aspects: HUMAN survival in the first term, ANIMAL survival after Christmas and then the survival of the PLANET in the summer term. We have also chosen to look at books from the author Michael Morpurgo and poems from Adrien Mitchell.

As a class, we will start our learning this term by exploring the beautiful book Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. This will take us on a journey around the world before becoming stranded on a desert island, where we will have plenty of excellent writing opportunities. We will also be looking at what to do in a survival situation, using our science and DT to build a survival kit, including making a homemade compass, water purifier and designing a shelter.  This kit will be crucial for our own Survival day!  We will then move on to look at surviving a natural disaster, focusing on volcanic eruptions like in Pompeii.

Don't forget - we also have our residential to Tattenhall during the Spring term- which we are already really looking forward to!


All of our learning will be focused around this theme. Take a look at our topic web to find out more information about the learning opportunities we have planned for this term.

You will also find our spelling homework lists and other useful information attached to our class page.  


If you have any resources or information you feel would be relevant to our topic, we would love for you to pop in and share in our 'love for learning'.
