Our Class

There are 30 children in Maple Class. We are taught by Mrs Culley on Tuesdays and Wednesdayss and Mrs Wheatman on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Mr Gawthrope teaches us P.E. on Tuesday and Thursdays. We are supported by Mrs Verwoerd.

Our Curriculum

We are going to learn about some very exciting topics this year including The Tudors, the Human Body, Buddhism and Portrait painting!

Life in Maple Class

In Maple Class we are hardworking and supportive. We know we have an important role to play as the eldest children in the school and strive to do our best to set an example to others. We enjoy helping the children in Acorn Class and undertaking numerous responsibilities around the school. We always try our best and enjoy undertaking new challenges, learning from our mistakes and remaining optimistic and enthusiastic!

Homework & Spelling

Homework is given out on Fridays due in for the following Wednesday. Homework consists of a task for Maths, English and Science. Children are also expected to practise spellings and read daily.


We are expected to practise our reading everyday and complete our reading records. These should be brought into school every day.  Reading is such an important skill, we make sure we do some every day. We also enjoy class novels. Reading and talking about what we have read is really important – lots of discussions about plot, language, structure and characterisation help deepen our understanding. This can be done outside as well as inside school.

Things to Remember

PE Kit is needed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, it is best if we have a kit available on our pegs all week in case the timetable needs to change
