Welcome to Maple Class,

It has been a fantastic first day back from remote learning! The children worked collaboratively to make silly sentences and silly stories, to solve codes using mathematics and creating our class growth mindset tree. The children all thought about 3 things they did during remote learning that they were positive about. They drew round their hands and wrote, drew and coloured in their growth mindset moments on to it. These then went onto our growth mindset tree, which will grow bigger and bigger as the children begin to have more and more growth mindset moments within school. The children have worked incredibly hard over the past few weeks at home and it was fantastic to see them in school today! For the rest of this term we are learning about rivers in the UK and how materials can be changed.

Being An Anglo-Saxon Outdoor Learning Day: 


The children had a fantastic time learning about their topic in an outdoor space. The day started with a reenactment of the invasion. Half the class were Picts and Scots and half were the Anglo-Saxon Tribes, they invaded Angleland on the field and learnt about the different fighting strategies used by both sides. 

Next, the children had to hunt for the resources the Anglo-Saxons needed to settle down. The children learnt that the Anglo-Saxons would be tired after the journey and the invasion and that the hunt may have taken some time and energy. 

The children had to translate some Anglo-Saxon runes and work out how to make shelters. The children made shelters out of tarpaulin and rope, they had a guide of different shelters they could make and they had to choose the one they wanted to use. The children worked incredibly hard as teams and all managed to get a shelter up. 

In the afternoon the children found fire wood and stored it correctly and then learnt how to build a campfire as the Anglo-Saxons would have. 


All in All the children learnt many skills working outside and all remembered many facts about the Anglo-Saxons. Ask your child what their favourite part of the day is. 

All About Space Day!


Today the children dressed up as their favourite colour of the Solar System. They were called in by their cadet name and had their lunch order taken by Captain Sharrad. The children trained like astronauts and learnt to sleep standing up. They looked at the stars and learnt the correct names.  The children decorated Solar System cakes and made moon buggies.
