Term 1 + 2 2021

Maple Class have had an amazing Term 1 and 2! They have settled in really well into Key Stage 1 and back into school. In Term One, we focused on our vehicle ‘Amazing Me’ and amazing individuals, our amazing bodies and our environment. We have been on a bear hunt and explored all the different places with our senses.


We have been on a walk around Lympne and planned our routes through our observations. We have also made bird feeders to help feed our birds.

In Term 2, we have been thinking all about vehicles and journeys. We have been on lots of different journeys with the Snail and the Whale and also visited the Polar Regions and learnt lots all about the Arctic and Antarctic animals, environments and landscapes!

We created our own vehicles to save the whale from being beached in our story. These were amazing and the children really thought about their designing, creating and evaluating our vehicles.

We have also been on a trip to the church to create Christingles! The children really enjoyed this and we learnt lots about Christingles and found lots of different signs of Christmas for our RE topic! Finally, we performed our Nativity ‘A Happy Clappy Nativity.’ The children were stars and we hope you enjoyed their amazing singing and dancing!
