Mr Rowe is the class teacher for Maple Class. We are a class of Year 3 children and are supported by members of the Teaching Assistant team at various sessions throughout the week.
Every Tuesday morning, we have a MFL session with Mrs. Barnes, who teaches French, and we have a P.E. session with Mr. Robinson.
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.
In our class, we follow both the Y3 National Curriculum in addition to the Nottinghamshire syllabus for RE and the Nottinghamshire Computing Framework.
