Welcome to Maple Class

We will be using this page to celebrate our work, keep you updated with what is happening in the classroom and communicate any information which might support the children’s learning at home.  There will be swimming, outdoor learning, school trips, visiting theatre productions and so many other exciting activities and adventures.   

This year, the teaching team in Maple class is Mr Pollock and Miss Maggs

Things to remember…

PE lessons are on a Friday and a Thursday but PE kits should be in all week!

Children should be reading AT LEAST three times a week at home and this should be recorded in their reading records.

10 minutes of Times Tables Rockstars three times a week to support their quick recall of times tables.

Spellings are set and completed on Purple Mash once a week.

Home Learning

We understand that this is an unsettling time and we hope having access to these ideas and resources listed below helps create a sense of routine to support your child’s learning. Equally we are aware that people have caring commitments and that every family will be doing their best day by day and as such, not every activity may be completed.

As a Trinity Church School teaching team, we are here to support you and your children during this unprecedented period. We will be in contact with you daily via Seesaw and have also added some links below, which have also been shared with you via Seesaw.
