Welcome to Maple Class of 2021-2022

We are all very excited about starting this year's BOOK BINGO challenge. The children are looking forward to being rewarded with their prizes for reading from the broad range of age appropriate texts. Prizes will be awarded for reading; a whole line of books from the BINGO grid, reading ten books and by reading all the books from the BINGO challenge.

For literacy this week, the children have been writing formal letters to Mrs Daniels applying for their Year 6 roles at Holy Trinity. Good luck Mrs Daniels - you have some tricky decisions to make!

This term our class book is 'When Hitler Stole PInk Rabbit' by Judith Kerr. The book is a memoir of the author's unforgettable story of Anne and her family fleeing from Germany before the start of Second World War.

This term's topic will have a historical theme. The title of the topic 'Who Do You Think You Are?' relates to learning all about our local history. The 3 key concepts linked to our topic are transformation, belonging and individuality.

Following a research task, the class performed a conscience ally (for and against) on Should Zoo's be allowed?. We specifically researched the impact of Colchester as this link to our local study of Colchester 'Who Do You Think you Are?
