Our class consists of Year 5 and Year 6 children and we are taught by Mrs Bayliss (Class Teacher) and Mrs Terefenko (Teaching Assistant). As Mrs Bayliss is the Assistant Headteacher, on Thursday Mr. Hepworth teaches us. As we are the oldest children in the school we have many responsibilities and always set an excellent example to the younger children.
In Maple class we are now in our final term of the year and, for some of us, our final term at St Mary’s! All of our Year 6’s and a few Year 5’s are off to new schools and we will miss them very much. It has been busy, as usual, though which has taken our minds off missing our friends too much. To assist the village in the King’s coronation activities, some of us we joined together to dance around a maypole with Broadway First school on The Green. We had many spectators and everyone was very proud of us. We also took part in the village design a coin competition to mark the coronation and two members of our class won prizes. We also competed in the Evesham swimming Gala coming third overall in our class.
The Year 6’s have taken their SATs tests and all worked really hard, before and during the tests. Mrs Bayliss and Mrs Terefenko were extremely impressed with their attitude and resilience so we went to the park to play (and eat doughnuts) afterwards.
In our lessons we have been learning about Mexico and The Mayans, Living things and continuing to learn the Ukelele!
Lots of great learning experiences to come and a busy term as usual!
Maple Class have P.E. on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Please note that swimming lessons will take place on Friday mornings during the Autumn Term only.
Weekly homework is as follows and we have a week to complete it:
- Reading- school reading books. We will read at home and take a comprehension quiz on our reading book when we have finished reading it.
- CLIC test -We will practise our Maths skills by correcting any mistakes we have made in our weekly test.
- Spelling practice. Children will bring home a list of words to learn each week. This list will be linked to our spelling scheme in school and the knowledge will be checked in a weekly spelling quiz on Fridays.
