Weekly Update (15.10.21)
This week in Maple class we have been recalling the facts we have learnt about the ancient Egyptians. I wonder if your child can share some of them with you?
In Maths we have been continuing our learning of addition using different methods to do so. In English we have been writing up our stories and practicing our editing skills. Our class Gold Award this week went to Joseph for trying really hard with his handwriting- well done!
Weekly Update (09.10.21)
This week in Maple class we have been finding out all about teeth. This resulted in a rather smelly egg investigation- ask your child to tell you all about it! In Maths we have been learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100 as well as exploring negative numbers and Roman numerals. In English we have been learning the skills needed to write our own version of the story Egyptian Cinderella. Our class Gold Award this week went to Millie- well done!
This week in Maple Class (W/C 20.09)
We have worked really hard to complete our newspaper reports about the mystery mummy, and have produced some great work. We have learnt about teeth, what type of teeth we have, why they are different and the different jobs they do - we also counted our teeth and found out how many teeth we should have. We enjoyed taking tags off each other as we learnt to dodge and weave in our tag rugby session and some of us managed to grab 4 or more tags, great job!
This week in Maple Class!
We have had great fun in Maple Class this week trying to persuade Mrs Dunn to buy our newspapers with catchy headlines. Our favourite was 'Mystery Sandwich Explodes!' We have started writing our newspaper reports reporting on the mysterious mummy Sennapod, and all of his adventures. If anyone sees any black vans around school, please let us know. The last time there was a black van in the school, the mummy appeared - all very mysterious! We have also been superstar mathematicians, learning about place value and have enjoyed playing musical instruments.
Welcome message from your class...
A huge welcome to Maple Class!
Hello, I am Mrs Beale and I teach in Maple Class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I have taught at CPS for four years and really enjoy teaching fun lessons and seeing the wonderful work the children produce. I live with my husband, my two lovely boys and two naughty dogs - Flash who likes to bark at bikes and cars, and Pickle who likes to roll in fox poo! I am so excited about starting this year and working with the wonderful children in Maple Class.
Hello, I'm Miss Barden and I teach Maple Class on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I have taught at CPS for a number of years and have just come back from maternity leave.

Learning in Maple Class is focused around you as learners, becoming confident and independent and always striving for your best. We aim to provide exciting lessons that not only make you want to learn but also help you to develop new skills.
What to wear and bring to school:
All students should come to school in school uniform and with a school bag. You should have a named water bottle and a hat to wear as the weather gets warmer. On PE days you will need to come into school dressed in your PE kit, rather than in school uniform.
End of the day:
The school day ends at 3.10pm. The children will be released to an adult from the school playground. Please ensure the class teacher knows who your child is being picked up by, especially if this changes for any reason.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or concerns. This can be done via the school office or by sending an email to one of us. Please see the email addresses on the contact page. We will aim to get back to you within 24 hours. For urgent enquiries, please contact the school office.
We look forward to seeing you in class soon!
Mrs Beale and Miss Barden
