Welcome to Maple Tree Class!
We have been very busy in Maple Tree class in the run up to Christmas.
To mark the start of Advent, we each wrote a prayer of thanks to God and made these into a class Advent calendar which we open and read at the beginning of each day to help us think about the true meaning of Christmas and how we are preparing for it. As well as this, we were visited by Davi’s mum to share with us how she is preparing for the birth of her baby in the Spring.
In English, we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We have found out about who Samuel Pepys was and why his diary has been so important for hundreds of years in helping people to understand the events that happened during that time. In class we have put ourselves in the shoes of Samuel Pepys and have written diaries in the first person, as well as making a time line of events and a fact file about Samuel Pepys.
In Maths, we have been looking at statistics. We have collected data in class as a tally to find out what our favourite fruit is and then transferred this information onto pictograms and bar charts. We have had lots of fun drawing these and then interpreting the data.
We also made time to practice all the wonderful Christmas songs for our Carol Service on December 19th which we hope you all enjoyed!.
Thank you for your continued support,
