Red Maple

red-mapleMrs Williams and Miss Bolton are the class teachers for Red Maple, where Mrs Hurst is the teaching assistant. Mrs Williams teaches the class each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, with Miss Bolton teaching the class each Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.

As Year 1 & 2 children are in the same class their work is carefully differentiated to allow for differences in age, experience and ability. 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.
