Welcome to Maple Class
Maple Class is home to the year 5 and 6 children,
Miss May (Class Teacher), Miss Grey (Higher Level Teaching Assistant),
Miss Evans (1:1 Teaching Assistant) and Miss Mace (1:1 Teaching Assistant).



These documents contains the essential knowledge that children will need to know as part of the different topics that they will be studying in class (science, history, geography and French). 

Knowledge Organisers will be used in school as part of our lessons but it would be useful if the children could also spend time looking at them at home.  


Our PE day is Monday. We ask that children come to school dressed in appropriate PE kit:

  • Black shorts/track suit bottoms
  • T.Shirt in your house colour (red, green, blue, yellow) - no logos please
  • School jumper/cardigan 
  • Trainers/daps which must remain in school

Earrings and watches MUST be REMOVED for all PE lessons.

Reading is an essential life skill. At the same time as ensuring our children become confident readers we also encourage children to develop a love of reading. The PDF below outlines how reading is taught in Maple class.
We use the Boom Reader App (formerly Go Read) to record when children read at home and school. If you require logins, please speak to Miss May. 
Children are given opportunities to practise their spellings during morning registration every day. We encourage the use of the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. Spellings Test Day: Monday
Please find below the year 3/4 and year 5/6 statutory spelling lists as well as the spellings for each group per term.
Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar is an important part of the writing process. The children in Maple Class have daily SPaG lessons and at the end of KS2 they will be required to sit a SPaG SATs test. Below is a glossary of punctuation and grammatical terms that children need to understand:
Mathematics, like reading and writing, is an integral part of our lives. Our aim is for the children in year 6 to leave us confident with all aspects of mathematics. We do not set weekly focused maths homework however, like reading, we do encourage daily practice (approx. 10mins) of mathematic skills, such as, learning/practising quick mental recall of times tables and the corresponding division facts, learning the days of the week and months of the year in order together with knowing how many days are in each month, learning measurement equivalents, etc. 
Below is a PDF containing the Mathematical Facts children need to learn and also an overview of the mathematics curriculum for each year group.
We encourage children to use TTRockStars to practice their times tables and corresponding division facts. We will periodically have TTRS tournaments throughout the year.

Online Maths Games:
Hit the Button - excellent for practising times tables, doubling/halving, number 
                          bonds and square numbers 
We do not set written weekly homework. Instead we ask for children to practice the following three things each day:
  1. Reading - please read daily and record this on the Boom Reader App.
  2. Spelling - please practice your spellings daily ready for your test every Monday. See the spelling lists above.
  3. TTRockStars - please practice your times tables and corresponding division facts daily using the TTRS App. Miss May will be able to see when you have practised.
