Welcome to our Maple class page! On here you will be able to see photos of your child’s learning, information about their learning and important dates and notices. Please come back to our page regularly to keep updated, we hope you like it!

This term we are going to learn all about houses and homes around the world! We will be exploring why houses don't all look the same and why different materials might be used depending on location. There are a whole range of activities over the course of the next fourteen weeks, please look at the links below for a better idea of everything that we will be learning.

PRIDE Points

 

The children will receive Snape Wood Pride Points now instead of Super Points. Your child will be rewarded Pride Points just like they were with Super Points, and can use their points to buy prizes in the new Pride Points shop!

 

PRIDE stands for:

Positive Attitude

Respect

Inquistive

Determination

Empathy

 

Reading is very important for children. We wish for all children to enjoy reading and to become fluent readers. To encourage this, please take time to read with your child for at least five minutes each day and log this in their reading diary.

Maples have PE on Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child brings a labelled kit with black plimsolls or trainers on our PE days. Please also remove any earrings on these days for your child’s safety. 

 

Behaviour

In each class, there is a traffic light system for behaviour. Every child begins the day on Green. If a child breaks a school rule, they are asked to think about their behaviour and are given a warning. If the child does not change their behaviour, they are moved down to an orange. If their behaviour is still not improved, they are moved down to a red. The child is given chance to move back up the traffic light system and we support the children in trying to work their way to a green. However, if the child’s behaviour does not change when they are on red, they are sent to another class for the remainder of that lesson. 

 

Red Cards

 

If a child is on red at the end of the day or they have shown extreme behaviour, a red card will be sent home. Please take the time to speak with your child about this behaviour and sign and bring the card back to school if your child is given one.

 

Green Cards

 

Children that have shown good behaviour all week and have not been given a red card will be given a green card on a Friday. This is a chance for both you and school to encourage good behaviour. The children love being given the cards and are excited to take them home. They are entered into a prize draw when they bring in their card signed by you.
