Welcome to Maple Class

With the Government announcing a National Lockdown on Monday 4th January 2020 and school's closing except to Critical Worker and Vulnerable Children, this is where you will find all the resources you will need to support your child at home. You may also want to refer to the video centre in the home learning tab where you will find any videos for children to watch before engaging in their learning or just to enjoy watching. All the videos from the previous lockdown are also there if you want to use them. 

World Book Day - Thursday 4th March 2021


Thursday 4th March is World Book Day. At Padbury School we want to celebrate and encourage the joy of reading for pleasure. This year, due to Covid-19 World Book Day will be a virtual affair.  However, we still wish to embrace the ethos of the day and make our love of reading a focus for the whole week. Mrs McFarlane has sent out an email about creating 'Book Character Potatoes' and the children are welcome to dress up as a character from a favourite book on the day.  We have also put together a 'Dip and Do' style bank of activities that will be used in school this week and can be used at home as well.  The children could perhaps choose one activity per day to complete over the week.  Some activities may be more suitable for the younger children and some for the older children.

Padbury Recovery Curriculum 2020

Through the term we will be able to see where you are now in your learning and what your next steps are. The most important thing though is that you feel safe, confident and happy to be with us in our school environment.



The planning below shows an outline of the curriculum for Foundation Stage. This will likely change as we move through each term and adapt to the needs and interests of the children.


Foundation Stage Curriculum Plan

Also below for your information is the class booklet which outlines the expectations for your year group. We will go through this with parents at the Curriculum meetings at the start of the Autumn term.
