Welcome Message:


Welcome to the Maple Class page! We hope you have had a good half term. We have lots to look forward to this term and some fantastic topics to cover!


Our Topic: Set in Stone


This term's topic will be 'Set in Stone'

We will learn about the lives and legacy of early Britons and settlers, including those who lived during the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. We will have opportunities to consider how and why the ways of life adopted by prehistoric people slowly changed over time. We will learn to identify objects which do not belong in a particular historical setting and match archaeological evidence with a particular era in human history. We will also learn to recognise that the past is divided up into different eras.
We will be linking these ideas across English, art and history.

(Please see the curriculum map below for more detail)

Daily Reading

In Maple class we are very excited about improving our reading and comprehension by reading every day both at home and at school.

Some of year 3 have started using a new program in school to help improve their reading comprehension. This program is called Accelerated Reader.Accelerated Reader helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Students can choose a book that is perfect for their current reading level and then read it at their own pace. When finished, they take a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that they have understood what they read.
