Great Horwood Church of England School Where children play, learn and grow together

Maple Class - Year 3 and 4

Welcome to Maple Class!



Maple Class are very excited to begin their new topic 'Light of the world' which ties nicely with the Christmas season! 

A reminder of a few things:


P.E will  be taught on Thursdays with a sports tournament every Wednesday so please ensure P.E kit is in school on those days. Swimming will be for YR4's on a Tuesday afternoon where YR3 will continue to have a P.E lesson.


Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should come back into school by Wednesday. A Maths or English based task will be set alongside spellings and times tables (up to 12x12).  You will find weekly spellings for all groups under the spelling tab 'Miss Allen'. Alongside this, a discussion task of 'Picture News' will also be sent home.


Reading with your child is crucial to support their learning. Discussion to demonstrate understanding of a text and vocabulary supports their writing and will support our current focus in school. Therefore, it is expected that reading records are signed 3 times a week to demonstrate that this is happening at home. 


The following equipment is expected to be in school on a daily basis to ensure effective learning: 

•Black handwriting or roller ball pen (not a biro)

•Blue handwriting pen (for editing)

•Pencils, sharpener and rubber

•Ruler with millimetres


•Coloured pencils

•Glue stick

•Whiteboard pen

•Pencil Case


Just a small pencil case please!
