Mrs Shardlow is the class teachers for Maple Class but she is also the Deputy Headteacher and SENCo. We are a mixed class of Y3 and Y4 pupils and are supported by members of the teaching Assistant team at various sessions throughout the week.
Every Tuesday afternoon, we have an MFL lesson with Mrs Barnes who teaches us French. We also have PE with Mr Robinson. Mrs Barnes also teaches us on Wednesday mornings where we work on learning Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and have a Maths fluency session.
We have daily Maths lessons using the Mastery of Maths approach. This means that we are developing the use of resources and vocabulary to support us as we solve mathematical problems and explain our thinking. We are becoming more fluent and confident mathematicians, willing to apply our knowledge and skills to problem solving situations. Y3 pupils master the Y3 curriculum objectives and Y4 pupils master the Y4 curriculum objectives.
In our class, we follow both the Y3 and Y4 National Curriculum in addition to the Nottinghamshire syllabus for RE and the Nottinghamshire Computing Framework. From Y3- Y5, we follow a 3-year topic cycle with Beech Class. You can find out lots about our learning activities by visiting our class blog, found in the news section of this website.
What have we been learning?
As Maple and Beech classes follow a 3-year topic cycle, our learning focuses on a different topic each term over a three year cycle. Science is taught as a discrete subject. Our long term overview for Science can be found here:
