Welcome to Maple Class!
This term our Topic will be Winter Wonderland. Over the half term break a Winter Wonderland has appeared in the class room . This area will evolve over the term from a focus on the seasons of Autumn and Winter into a Christmas grotto full of whatever the children decide!

Rain Catchers 8 November
As part of our Winter Wonderland topic the children have been making rain catchers. The children chose what resources they would need, they constructed their rain catchers and then chose a place in the Maple Class garden to place them.
We will be revisiting them over the next few weeks where the children will monitor the rain fall. Measuring and recording their results.

Today was Superhero Day! 7 October
Maple Class joined, Edenham and Whaplode Schools for a fun packed Superhero day. The three Schools joined forces, and the children’s combined superpowers were supersonic…
A Superhero base was built for protection, traps set and tested, and signs made to warn off uninvited guests. Flying potions were crafted with care, ice warrior biscuits invented for incredible strength, healthy fruit kebabs provided everyone with the energy needed to defeat villains with propelled jet force super soakers.
A carpet picnic brought everyone together to share plans, ideas and stories. At the end of the day all children were congratulated as they passed their Superhero training with honours.
The children said “ We love being Superheroes”.
Firefighters Visit 7 October
As part of our Superhero topic, Maple Class got to meet real life Superheroes. We had a visit from the local Fire service and got to learn first hand all about the role of a firefighter. The firefighters talked to the children all about their specialist uniform and gave everyone a detailed tour in and around the fire engine.
The children got to handle lots of equipment and they all asked lots of questions.
