Welcome to Marvellous Maple

We are a Year 1/2 class. We enjoy learning together and working as a team.

Mrs Leivers and Mrs Ball are the class teachers. Mrs Leivers teaches us every Monday and Tuesday, and Mrs Ball teaches us on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Our Learning

In Marvellous Maple, we aim to create experiences which are exciting, and capture the interests of our children. Our topics include The great Fire of London, Poles Apart, Great British Bake Off and Robin Hood. 

We always begin each new topic with a ‘WOW’ starter or experience.

Our Timetable

Every day we come in and have a morning activity. This is an activity linked to something that we are learning about:

  • We have Phonics.
  • We have English.
  • We have a drink and healthy snack.
  • Play time.
  • We start Maths.
  • Dinnertime and individual reading with an adult.
  • Registration

In the afternoon, we either have Science or Topic lessons (Geography, History, Computing, Design and Technology, music).

                           

           

We aim to read individually at least twice a week with each child.

 RE is taught through assemblies and as a class session on a Tuesday.

Throughout the week R Time sessions help the children learn to respect and work together.

 

PE sessions take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday. 

  

Throughout the year, our year 2 children will experience Forest Schools

 

Behaviour and Rewards

We follow the whole school behaviour system. As a class we made our own rules and made a promise to follow these

           

Golden Time

Golden Time is on a Friday afternoon and is a reward for our good behaviour. This is where we choose a treat such as Strictly Come Dancing, Grand Designs, cosmic yoga, parachute, extra playtime, etc.

Star of the Week

Each week a child is picked to be Star of the Week and receives a certificate to take home as well as being displayed in school.
