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.

This half term we will begin by looking at Michael Morpurgo's 'The Rainbow Bear' which will inspire our own animal survival stories. This will allow us to study the polar bear in more detail and learn how it survives in the extreme Arctic environment. We will also use Chester Zoo's Songbird project to inspire our learning and generate discussions about the use of zoos in conservation, looking at their history and how they have changed over time. After half term, we have an exciting CAT literacy project planned named 'Twisted Tales', where we will be focussing on the portrayal of the wolf in fairytales and using this to inspire our own writing. 

Don't forget - we also have our residential to Tattenhall in March, where we have the opportunity to go to Reeseheath College to learn more about their conservation efforts. More details to follow!


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'.
