Maple Class

Maple Class

We are Y3 and our class is called Maple. We have 23 children in our class and we are all aged between seven and eight. Our classroom is found on the first floor of the new extention, so we are lucky to be able to work in a bright, modern classroom.  

Our teacher is Miss Forster and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hill.  

Topic

Our topic for this year is ‘Chocolate'. This is going to be an exciting topic with lots of potential for interesting work.

This term we are studying the Geography of chocolate, researching where it comes from and its journey to the supermarket.

Art 

In art we will be studying African art in which we will create our own African Landscapes in silhouette style.

Science

Our scientific work includes Magnets and Forces. We will be performing fair tests to see what materials are magnetic, testing to see what magnet is the strongest and testing the friction of different surfaces! Exciting!

Class Book

Our class book is Iron Man by Ted Hughes and this will be our focus book all half term. We will create letters, stories, setting and character descriptions, instructions and non-chronological reports all based around this topic. Can you find out any interesting facts about Ted Hughes or Iron Man?

Computing

In computing we will focus on E-safety ensuring that children understand how to use the internet safely. We will be using the safe search browser during this topic! Remember to be SMART!

 

During the Autumn term there will be a handball club being ran for Year 3/4 children and it will start on Wednesday 13th September.

 

We hope you enjoy looking at some of the activities that we do in school.

 

Keep a lookout on our website for further information and photographs.
