Maple Class 2019 - 2020

Miss Booth

Welcome to Maple Class! Our class is made up of 21 very clever year fours and fives. Our teacher is Miss Booth and we are very lucky to also have Mrs Stanaway working with us throughout the week. We are super busy this year and are excited for the challenges and learning that lies ahead. Miss Booth will be continuing to use Class Dojo this year, where will you will be able to see what we ahve been learning in school, see reminders about the school week and also keep in touch easily with Miss Booth. 

This term our topic is 'The Victorians'. We will be learning all about Queen Victoria, the industrial revolution and also what life was like for a child during the Victorian era. 

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me: vbooth@woodcockswell.cheshire.sch.uk or through Class Dojo. 

Life in Maple Class

A typical day in Maple class looks a bit like this:

Children come straight into class and work on a morning activity, including: spelling practice, math challenges and reading tasks. They also spend this time changing books and enjoying the different reading books that we have in the classroom.

We then have a spelling lesson which is followed by maths, including maths challenge, which changes focus weekly, and English.

We also have workship time every day, some are at the start of the day and some are straight after break-

Monday – Roots and Fruits led by Mrs Massen

Tuesday – Celebration Assembly, lead by Mrs Massen and Rev Phillip 

Wednesday – Heart Smart 

Thursday – Bible studies with Mrs Winterton 

Friday – Singing assembly 

PE day is a Tuesday. Please ensure that you have your P.E. kit in school every day just in case this changes. During the winter, children will require an outdoor PE kit too. 

Spanish takes place each Thursday afternoon with Senorita Clowes, along with Music with Mrs Brown. We have three focused sessions on reading and SPaG throughout the week. We also explore other areas of the curriculum such as art and design technology, history and greography through our whole class topic, which might be taught weekly or in blocks. RE and science are also taught weekly. 

The Curriculum

Please take a look at our class topic booklet to find out more about what we will be focusing on this term. 

How can I help and support my child at school?

There are so many ways in which you can help support your child's learning at home.

* Reading - please listen to your child read as often as you can and talk about what they have read. All children will have a school reading book and we do ask them to read this regularly (aim for three - four times per week). However, there is also nothing to stop you and your child finding other interesting texts to read together e.g. articles in the local paper, non-fiction books about a hobby or another story they enjoy from home.

* Maths - tables tables tables! Chant them, test each other in the car, do them backwards, find the corresponding division facts, make up games with thousands of points for the winner! Please help your child to know their times tables inside out - this will help them so much in all other areas of maths.

Homework

Homework this year will be given out on a Tuesday and due in the following Monday. Whilst homework must be the children's own work, I really enocurage parent support at home too. 

Homework will have different focuses each week; reading, SPaG, maths, writing and will often link with what they have been learning in school. The children will also regularly be set homework online in the form of Mathletics and Spellzone. They will usually be set specific tasks before they are then able to play lots of fun and exciting games which the online platforms offer.
