Welcome to Maple Class
Maple Class (Year 3) is taught by Mrs Waters. Mrs Reynolds supports the class every day.
Maple Class is the start of your child's journey in Key Stage 2. It is still vital that you listen to your child read each day and support their practice of times tables. This will form the foundation of their maths and comprehension work.
Pupils in Maple Class continue to enjoy weekly Forest School sessions (every other half term) linked to the wider curriculum. These sessions take place on a Thursday. We're very lucky to have our own school wood; the changing natural environment provides a wonderful space for your child to learn, explore and challenge themselves in a safe and familiar setting.
Homework: Your child will have a homework task set on Sumdog each Monday. This is to be completed by the following Monday. The task follows on from what they have learned in class, and will be personalised to your child. We expect all children to read to an adult four times per week to improve their decoding, fluency and comprehension. Children who read more than this are rewarded with a prize in our Star of the Week assembly.
Spellings: Five spellings will be given every Monday and tested on a Friday along with five other words using the same spelling pattern.
Forest School: Our Forest School session is on a Thursday afternoon of Autumn 1, Spring 1 and Summer 1 half terms. Children need to come to school dressed in warm/waterproof clothes including hats, gloves, warm coat and wellies in winter, and suitable layers in summer. Please ensure that the children have a spare pair of shoes to walk comfortably around school in.
PE: Our P.E lesson is on a Tuesday during Autumn 1, Spring 1 and Summer 1 half terms. It is on a Thursday during Autumn 2, Spring 2 and Summer 2 half terms. Children need to come dressed in their PE kit comprising of white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms, trainers, Stakesby hoodie or Stakesby jumper/cardigan. Hair should be tied back and any earrings should be removed before the lesson.
