Welcome to Maple Class!
Please be aware that information concerning learning, homework and trips will be made available on this page.
It's going to be a busy term in Maple Class as we get stuck in to our year four learning. Our topic this term is 'Would you live here?', specifically looking at different cultures around the world. Maple Class will be investigating Namibia, looking at it's people, climate and geographical features.
We will be beginning with place value in Maths, including; rounding, ordering and comparing numbers. In English we will be starting with a unit of persuasion, with an aim to get the children thinking about their school, they will be writing a persuasive letter to Mr Kamin asking him to change or add something to the school.
Science is going to biology based this term, we will be looking at the human body with specific reference to teeth and the digestive system. We will then move on to food chains and habitats, with an animal focus.
We will be beginning P.E with gymnastics, thinking about stretching and moving our bodies in a controlled manner. Then we will be moving on to netball, and build up some of our teamwork and ball skills.
Please note, P.E will take place every Monday and it is important your child has the correct P.E kit to take part safely and comfortably.
To develop a lifelong love of learning and valuable life skills, we aim to support every child to develop a positive learning and life approach. As part of this, you will increasingly become aware of the characteristics of PRIME.
Nelson (our school mascot) accompanies and illustrates each strand of this.
I attach a 'poster' to identify each of the characteristics of PRIME which we will be aiming to develop in every child during their time at Ruishton school. Please see below.
