Welcome to Maple Class
Miss Andrews is the teacher in Maple supported by Mrs Towersey and Mr Strange on Tuesdays.
We are very lucky in the class as we have some wonderful Teaching Assistants working in class throughout the week: Mrs McKee, Mrs Brain, and Mrs Hayes. We are also joined by Mrs Butterworth every Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
Every half term we have a new and exciting topic which engages the Year 1 and 2 children in a range of cross curricular activities. Our recent topics have included ‘Call the Doctor!’ ‘Castles’ and ‘A Bug’s Life’. Please see our curriculum map to find out more!
