Welcome to Maple Class
Mrs Wellings is the class teacher for Maple. The children in Maple class include all our Year 4 children plus the younger Year 5 children.
"Maple Class is our children's introduction to "Upper School" life. We have quite a hectic learning schedule, but we play hard too - especially on Fridays when we have Privilege Time. The current class are really into the songs from Mamma Mia and Bucks Fizz's "Making Your Mind Up" - so come along and watch us singing into our rulers and hairbrushes!
Below are more details about the class written by current and former pupils:

In common with the rest of the school, Maple has a team-spirited and caring ethos at its core. We work hard and enjoy our learning, with lots of practical activities. There are also our furry friends Walt, Wilf, Mr Cheese and Best Mate, who come and sit on the children’s tables whenever they see a really hard-worker.
Olivia Fortmuller and Cerys Durham have written about our class to tell you more about it.
