Maple Class are working hard this term and the pupils have produced some lovely work in all subject areas. We have been practising using dictionaries as part of our English work and all pupils are making good progress. We have also been studying the text 'Private peaceful' by Michael Morpurgo, which fits in with our history work on WW1. As part of this work we are visiting St. John's museum in Warwick for a special WW1 day. Also in history we have been watching the BBC series 'Back in Time for School' which has provoked some really interesting discussions on life at school during the different decades. In geography we have been looking at weather and climate and we are now going on to do some map work. in maths we are continuig with our Entry Level work and have been getting to grips with percentages, fractions, column addition and subtraction. P.E. this term has been enjoyed by everyone - we have been practising netball and basketball and had a fantastic netball day at Myton school where we nearly won!
We have a basketball day in Coventry coming up and we have high hopes! Other subjects include Spanish (food!) and R.E. where we are looking at the Coventry Cathedral Peace and Reconciliation work. Work skills / experience continues and all pupils continue to enjoy art, music and drama.
Maple class have been working on "Myths and Legends" in Entry level English -which has included reading the book "Room 13" and visits to Kenilworth Castle and Harry Potter Studio's where pupils could set the scene and role play their own stories.
