Week 1

Hello Maple Class and Parents smiley


I hope you had a lovely half term break in the sunshine, weather has been so beautiful! At school this term our topic would have been 'Pirates!' Like last term we will look at stories, this time being based around Pirates and activities will be planned around these stories alongside the usual daily Phonics and Math's activities. In Phonics this week we will be focusing on 'triagraphs' (such as igh, ear, ure. Triagraphs are three letters which together make one sound. In Math's we will be focusing on 'capacity and weight.' 


The Pirate stories we will be looking at this term are The Pirate's Next Door, The Night Pirates and Captain Flinn And The Pirate Dinosaurs. Over the term these stories will be looked at over two weeks, rather than across one week as we did in previous weeks. 


For the first two weeks we will be looking at the story of 'The Pirate's Next Door.' Please find below a video of the story if you do not have this story at home! I have also attached ideas for you to do across the week, and I will add different ideas for next week based around the same story. 


Thanks again as always for all the hard work happening at home, and for reading so much too! As a class we have read 500 books on Epic, which is amazing! Well done all of you yes


Have a fun week being Pirates!


Love Miss Baulcomb and Mrs T heart
