WELCOME TO MAPLE CLASS
 
Maple Class is our Year 5 class and is taught by Mr Parekh with Mrs Eames as teaching assistant.  Please click the box below to see what our topic and learning will be this half-term!
 
PE - Our PE day is TUESDAY (sailing on Thursdays) however, we request that PE kits are in school each day so that we can alter our provision according to the weather.
 
Homework - As with the rest of Key Stage 2, we set our homework on Friday and this is due back in on Tuesday. Our homework club runs every Monday lunchtime. 
 
Spellings - Class spellings will go out on Friday - we will look at them in lessons during the week, culminating in an assessment  the following Friday. 
 
Reading - As always, reading is a high priority. Encourage your child to read everyday - even if it is 1 page!
