In Maple Class, we have been busy reading the Abominables by Eva Ibbotson. We were recently greeted by huge footprints that started in the doorway of our class and ended in the middle of the room! We were really excited to investigate what kind of animal would leave such huge footprints and we all agreed a Yeti must be the culprit! In our class story the main character, Lady Agatha, is kidnapped when she is young by a Yeti and she ends up living on the highest peak of a mountain in Nanvi Dar, raising three baby Yetis. We have been writing letters to Lady Agatha's father to let him know that we are alive and well and detailing everything we have been getting up to with our Yeti friends. 
In Science, we have been learning all about rocks and soils. The children have learnt all about the three types of rocks and have been categorising them based on density and permeability. We will soon be making igneos, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks from chocolate! 
Impressionalism - Claude Monet
In the Autumn term, Maple class have been looking into the life and works of Claude Monet. 
 
The class developed their sketching skills to create their own watercolour painting of nature.
