We had an amazing talent show. Everyone in Maple tree is very talented. Here are some of the performances. I apologise for the singing being so quiet. 

We had an amazing time at sports day. We showed great sportsmanship and skills. 

One world week

This week was also One World week. Our focus country was Canada, which is where our teacher is from. We learnt a lot about Canada as well as learning to sing the nation anthem. We were great at the English version but are still working on our French. Some of our favourite facts were about the tradition of kissing a cod in Newfoundland and that a one dollar coin is called a loonie.  We also had our classmates share about the countries they and their families are from. 

We've had a very busy week this weekend. It started with a history workshop. We got to participate in a dramatic reenactment of the Great Fire of London. We learnt alot about what happened and why it started. 

We started our new term with a trip to the zoo. We had a fantastic time seeing all the animals. Some of our favourites were the sloth, gorillas and butterflies. 

Ducks

Over the past few weeks we have greatly enjoyed having the ducks with us. We watched them hatch from their eggs and become ducklings. We were truly amazed by how much they grew in a week going from an egg to swimming. We also enjoyed watching Mrs Wilton have to chase a duckling who escaped from the pool. While we're sad to see them go we know they'll have a great life back on the farm enjoying a much bigger pond. 

Coronation Celebration

As part of our coronation celebration we had a surprise visit from the circus. We practised spinning plates, balancing feathers and tossing flower sticks. We had some real talents in our class. We also had an assembly to celebrate as a school. We sang our favourite coronation song. Our tea part was a little rained out but we still had fun inside. 

Summer gardening

We have been working hard in our school garden the past few weeks getting it ready for planting. We planted peas, beans, courgettes and herbs. 

Easter

We have a had a great last day of term celebrating Easter. Our bonnets we amazing! Mrs Wilton is so impressed with all of our hard work. We also had a visit from a special visitor who brought us a treat. 

 

Thank you to all of the parents and carers who supported us this term. Have a great break!

Science week

We have had an amazing science week! Our class brought many interesting experiments. The volcanoes were popular but some pf us chose to explore magnets or capillary action. We also got to participate in a school wide building project. 

World Book Day

We recently celebrated World Book day. We had a fantastic time dressing up as our favourite story book characters. 

Wind in the Willows

We were lucky enough to have a visit from a theatre company who presented us Wind in the Willows. We loved learning the songs and some of us got to do some acting in the show. 

Ash Wednesday

As we come into the Lenten season we went down to the chapel to get our blessing and cross for Ash Wednesday. We also spent some time coming up with promises for Lent.
