Miss Cripps

Welcome to Maple Class webpage. I hope that you will find the information here useful and will check back regularly for updates and news.


New PE times for at school pod children

Starting next week we have 3 sessions of PE per week. These will be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please can those children in school wear PE clothes to school on these days. 

Kings and Queens

This term the focus of our kings and queens topic will centre around Windsor Castle. We will find out when it was built and what it was like to live there during this time, and compare this to how it is used and lived in today.  We will look at the geographical features surrounding Windsor Castle and use maps and aerial photographs to identify these. In science we will be finding out about the changing seasons and will look at the differences between evergreen and deciduous trees. 

Our focus in English will be on reading non-fiction texts, and we will produce our own non-chronological report about castles. 

This term we will continue to work on addition and subtraction, including knowing number bonds to ten, as well as writing numbers correctly using numerals and words.

Autumn 2 learning


Maple class will start the day at 8:40 and finish the day at 3:10. You will come into school and leave school using Maple Class door opening onto the Reception playground. You will need to come into school using Gate A. You will need to exit the school using Gate B. 


Please put reading books in the basket outside class every Monday and Thursday so that they can be changed.  Try to read with your child as often as you can and practise reading and spelling the tricky words on their book mark.


It would be useful for every child to have a pair of wellies in school so that they can use our outdoor learning area. 


Our regular PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday. 


We will do PE outside whenever it is possible. Please make sure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit, including outdoor shoes, in school at all times. PE kits will go home on Fridays to be washed. Children will not be able to borrow spare PE kit.
