Welcome to Maples!
We had a fantastic overnight stay in York at the start of April, visiting York Chocolate Story, the National Railway Museum and Barley Hall. We stayed at the YHA hostel, went on an evening river cruise and walked the walls. We also visited York Minster, which we have drawn and painted in art lessons. Take a look at our photos - lots of experiences and lots of smiles!
Last term we adopted a puppy called Spirit.
He is being trained to be a guide dog.
HERE IS OUR SPRING CURRICULUM MAP.

Homework is to be handed in on Monday.
New homework will go out on Wednesday.
