Summer Holiday

And so another year comes to an end. Thank you for all the support you have given your children and us over the last year. With your help, we really feel we’re making a difference to your children’s lives.
If you are lucky enough to be going away on holiday, have a wonderful time. If you’re not going away we hope you enjoy a break from the routine and the chance to spend some quality time with your children.
See you in September!

From all the staff at Maple Cross JMI.

Parents/carers: Website feedback needed.

The new website is now in full swing and I hope you are enjoying the updates, learning and opportunities to get involved.
Can it be improved? Of course it can. We are already planning subject areas for children (and grown ups) and various other things, but is there anything you’d like to see improved or added? How could we make it be as useful to you as it is for us?
We guarantee to consider all suggestions!

Creation

In Year 6, in RE, we have been exploring the different creation stories from the different religions. We have compared how they are similar and how they are different. We are now going to investigate how Jewish people celebrate the creation. Use these websites to explore the Jewish celebrations and see what you can discover.
