Maples Autumn term

This term Maples first topic was ‘Inside Out’ in which we focused on a range of emotions and feelings. The children designed their own character that represented an emotion and also talked about how our emotions affect our ability to learn.

Our main topic this term is ‘Dinosaurs’. We were really fortunate to experience a visit from ‘Sophie T-Rex’. We learnt a range of different facts about dinosaurs, when they lived and how they became extinct. We also became palaeontologists and discovered fossils of dinosaurs and identified the dinosaur that they came from.

In English we will be writing a non-chronological report, instructions, an adventure story and a poem all linked to the topic.

In maths we will be following the White Rose scheme of work and this term we will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division as well as finding out about length and perimeter.

In science we will be learning about parts of the human body as well as the senses. We will then move on to learn about how to keep healthy.


Maples will attend Forest school on Tuesday mornings where we will concentrate on problem solving and team building activities.

In PE we will have weekly swimming lessons to improve our skills and team games.
