Welcome to Maple Class! 


This is the year 2 class of Newtown Primary School. Our teacher for this year is Mrs. Ward and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Jones. 


In the autumn term we will be looking at Roald Dahl and we will be starting our topic with a Roald Dahl day coming up soon on the Wednesday 19th September. The children are allowed to dress up as their favourite Roald Dahl book character which can be anything from Charlie Bucket to Fantastic Mr Fox. During this topic we will be reading the books of Roald Dahl, looking at his life and why he started writing. We are even going to try to recreate his writing shed in our role play area. 


In October, we will be visiting West Town Farm in Ide. We will be looking at animals which link to our science topic which is the Life Cycles of Animals. Also the children will be having a go at apple pressing which links to our topic later in the term of Seasonal Changes and Harvest.


This year PE days will be on Monday's and Wednesday's so make sure that the children have their PE kits for those days. 


Here is our welcome letter for the new year:
