Welcome New MAPLE class 2017-2018. I hope you all enjoyed your summer holidays and I look forward to hearing about your ventures over the holiday.
Our first topic is UP WITH A BANG! This is all about Volcanoes and Earthquakes. The focus of this topic is to use our geographical skills to examine famous volcanoes and learn how they were made, how they work and lots of other interesting facts. We will be discovering what is, how does it and why do earthquakes happen.
In science we will be looking at forces and magnets and exploring the different types of forces including gravity, friction, air resistance and buoyancy.
Our PE days will be on Mondays and Wednesdays (with Mr Gazzard), please ensure your PE kit comes to school on Monday and remains in school for the week. You will need an indoor and out door PE kit. School colours are BLACK shorts/ jogging bottoms and a PLAIN WHITE Tshirt. School jumpers will be allowed for outdoor PE when it is cold. Please remember , hair must be tied back and no ear rings are allowed for PE.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected in on a Wednesday. Reading folders and reading books need to be in school everyday and we will be continuing with the school guidelines of reading three times a week at home. Spellings will be given out and tested twice, the first in isolation and second in dictation.
