Maple Class

Welcome to Maple Class

We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are feeling refreshed and ready for a new and exciting year.

Spring Term


This term our topics will be:

  • Underwater Adventures and Houses and Homes
  • Science this term is: Floating and Sinking and Materials
  • RE this term is: Incarnation – Focusing on why Christians perform nativity plays at Christmas and what it is that makes us special and precious.



Your child will continue to have regular phonic sessions. We will be using ‘Jolly Phonics’ as a basis for all phonics teaching. They will be learning some basic digraphs and trigraphs this term.


Key words

Please continue to look at them together and use the words to make different sentences, play games with them or find them in books you are sharing. These words need to be recognised by sight and NOT sounded out. There will be no new keywords this term, so please revise all the keywords which have previously been sent home.



Can I please remind parents to sign your child’s reading diary when you have listened to them read; this helps us to change their books on a regular basis. 



Please make sure that they have their PE kit in school, this can be left until half term as they may need it for dance and other activities. They will have PE every Friday, this term it will be outside so please ensure they have appropriate clothing. If in doubt please contact the office. 

Keyword Revision Sheet - Please print and use as a checklist to show you which keywords your child knows.
