Welcome to Maple Class!
Teacher - Miss Giocondi
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Chapman
Everyone in Maple Class is ready for the journey ahead of us.
We are prepared to try every possible strategy and method, to work with our partners and support our friends, all this whilst smiling and enjoying the new learning.
Term 5 Topic
Traders and Raiders!
Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain's shores.
Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the life of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia - never before had such terror swept the land.
Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages...?
As well as having a wonderful text to read (I am not giving anymore away!), we will be taking a look at the main Viking Gods Thor, Odin and Frey. In geography we will look at our physical and human elements of our local area, going for a walk into the downs where we can see the river and how it may have looked in Viking times!
The Blue Abyss
Grab your wetsuit! We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.
Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal?
Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the blue abyss…
We will be going on our class trip this term. We will be heading off to Hastings Aquarium on Monday 9th July ( times and costing's to be confirmed!). Hopefully, the weather will be nice and time permitting, we may even be able to get onto the beach!
In Science we'll be looking at living things and their habitats, whilst in music, we will be looking at musical poetry inspired by the World around us!
Our P.E days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. P.E kits should be kept in school for an entire term, and taking home at the end of term to be washed.
Earrings should be taken out wherever possible or medical tape wrapped around the earrings to protect the ear.
Please see the P.E policy for any more information
