Red Maple

red-mapleMr Little is the class teacher for Red Maple and Miss Piper 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.

  • Please sign your child's reading record every evening, after hearing them read and put it in their book bag every day.
  • Every term a grid of homework tasks will be sent home for children to complete over the term. Children are encouraged to choose a minimum of 4 tasks (please feel free to complete more). Homework must be in by the Monday of the last week of term so we can share and celebrate. 
  • New spellings are given each Friday, with a test the following Friday.
  • Please make sure that your child has their coat with them in school.
  • Children need their wellington boots in school for any visits to our woods.
  • PE is now every  Thursday - please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school for every lesson.
