Our Year 1 & 2 children are in Maple Class supported by Miss Richards, Mrs Hutchinson, Mrs Walker & Mrs Farrell.


Our first topic of the year is Superheroes. We will be having lots of fun acting out superhero adventures and reading fantastic superhero books, such as ‘Supertato’, ‘Traction Man’, as well as non-fiction books about real life heroes such as police officers. The children will be creating wanted posters to try and catch the Evil Pea, as well as creating their own superhero and villain vegetables to feature in their own comic strips.

We will be learning about the brilliant human body in Science and exploring our five senses by going on a senses walk. In Music, the class will be learning an exciting rap together as part of our Charanga unit. Elsewhere, in P.E we will be working with the new Reception class, focussing on games skills in the playground. We will learn about the impact individuals like Florence Nightingale had upon the world and discuss what makes police officers, nurses and many other people everyday heroes.

Maple Class are lucky enough to have a visit from a police officer planned for later in the term, which will allow us to hear first-hand about the superhero jobs they do. We are also looking forward to going to the Cheltenham Literature Festival. It’s been such a long time since we’ve been on a school trip together. We can’t wait!

This year's planning:
