Maple Class - Year 5/6
Maple class is led by Mr Ledger and supported by a great team of teaching assistants who support children in their learning and development during their final two years at school.
In Maple class, we endeavour to provide the children with opportunities to develop their independence skills. Where possible, we link subject areas together in order to provide the children with greater opportunities to enrich their learning. For example, so far this year we have studied topics, including ‘Light and Dark,’ ‘London’ and ‘How life has changed.’ These topics have included work across all of the curriculum areas, to provide the children with a wide range of learning opportunities. Our topic for this term is, ‘How do humans and living things live?’ (See our attached curriculum overview for this term)
Providing the children with a wide range of learning skills is a key part of the ethos at St Paul’s and it has been great for the children to have the opportunity to study food technology since January, learning some important life skills, whilst also making links to the Science Curriculum through the children’s work on nutrition and healthy living.
The children have daily Spelling Punctuation and Grammar, English and Maths lessons throughout the morning, alongside Numeracy Ninjas, with various thematic learning taking place in the afternoons. The children in Year 6 also get additional support in English in Maths in the afternoons. The children undertake two hours of PE each week – often this is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Please have a look at some of the amazing work which children in Maple have produced this year.
