Hello and welcome to Maple Class!
We are a year 5/6 class and our teacher is Mrs Neate.
In Maple Class, we are lucky enough to have four TAs working alongside us, these are; Mrs Leat, Mrs Birkett, Mr Merriman and Mrs Holdway.

We are all really looking forward to the another exciting term ahead in our fantastic school :)
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Neate


Our topic for Terms 5 and 6




A new term finds us with a new theme; our theme is ‘Don't Siesta, Let's Fiesta!'


This will remain for Terms 5 and 6. Term 5 is a history based theme on the Mayan civilisation.  We will be investigating how this ancient society lived, the gods they worshipped, the food that they ate and the games they played.


In Science, we will be learning how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and about the human digestive system.  In Art we will be creating our own 3D images to form a circle of friends.

For Years 5 and 6 , Home Learning will be put on class pages on a Friday and spellings will need to be learned by the following Friday. Home Learning will include weekly spellings, reading and a termly project challenge.


Remember reading remains very important for everyone; please read 5 times a week (as agreed in the Home School Agreement) and ask your parents to initial your Contact Book to show you have read. We always love to see how much you have read. J



Additional Home Learning:


If you would like to do some additional learning at home, there are some great websites for research and revision. Hit the Button is a great way to practise your tables and BBC KS2 Bitesize has lots of opportunities to practise a wide variety of English, Maths and Science topics. Or perhaps you could make a PowerPoint or poster about something you have learnt. I would love to see it!



Open up your spellings groups' spellings below for this week's spellings. Year 5 you will be tested on your spellings next Friday. As Year 6 are in Saundersfoot, you will not have any spellings this week. :)
