Red Maple

red-mapleMr Little is the class teacher for Red Maple and Mrs Williams is the teaching assistant.

Children in Red Maple build upon the foundations of learning they have developed in their early years and begin to apply their skills and knowledge to a more extensive range of situations.

The pupils in Year 2 are statutorily assessed in the summer, using national curriculum tasks and tests to support teacher assessment, and these results are reported to parents.

Mr Little and Mrs Williams

Our theme for Term 6 is:

  • Learn about the lives of astronauts, and research famous men and women involved in space travel and science.
  • Create some fantastic Space Art.
