Maple Class

Maple Class Summer 2021

Welcome to Maple Class!


Maple Class are our Year 3 and 4 children and, as we move into Key Stage 2 we build on the skills acquired in Key Stage 1, learning to apply these across an increasingly sophisticated and varied curriculum.



Our teacher is Mr Helsby.


Some of the other adults who work in our class are

Mrs Clarke and Mrs Banks.


Mental Maths books will be sent home on Thursday which should be returned completed by the following Monday.  Try to complete one page per week. Feel free to help your child with any questions they find difficult but it's useful for note which ones you have helped with in the book.

There are several different spelling groups in the class and your child with either have Attack or a spelling list in a green spelling book to learn throughout the week.   Instructions are included in the green book about how to learn them and a note is sent out with Attack spellings at the beginning of the year. 

All children will have a reading book to keep at school but at the moment we're not sending these home.   However, children are able to take home library books as we have a system for quarantine.

Your child should log on to TT Rockstars at least once a week.   I have set targeted times tables in your child's profile.

Please read with your child as much as possible.    I can't stress the importance of reading, reading and more reading!   It's also good to read to your child as you can model good reading to them.   I always read to the children in class as I feel this is incredibly important.   Holidays are a great time to cuddle up with a good book.

Mr. Helsby

Yellow Submarine

You must listen to this. This is Maple Class singing Yellow Submarine.. The two year groups have been joined together with the power of technology. I've left in the 'studio chatter' because it's so lovely to hear. Thanks to Joey for the 'walkie talkie' chatter and Luke for his captain instructions at the end!
