Today many wonderful creations came into school for our egg competition. There were all different shapes and sizes and many very creative ideas. We look forward to announcing the winners in assembly on Friday. Many thanks to our PTA for donating prizes.
Tonight, members of our PTA met to review recent events and discuss a range of upcoming events. Key ideas were; Easter disco at the club, Mother’s Day Gifts, Easter egg donations, the Summer Fair and Firework night. The PTA also approved donations to the school to support learning including class trips and a surprise for Year 6!
Plans were shared about ideas to create a kitchen/cooking area for pupils in our community room.
Many thanks to our wonderful PTA members. If you can support us in anyway please join us at our next meeting on 9th March.
This Friday Year 2, 4 and 6 had an amazing time jumping on the Maple Cross bouncy castle. They were the winners of the highest attendance last term. Well done children! Who is going to be the winner this term?
On Friday Year 6 demonstrated their outstanding leadership and collaborative skills by learning with Nursery. The pupils in Year 6 organised resources and then guided Nursery through the learning process. Together the children weighed, measured, rolled and cooked gingerbread men ready to sell at the Christmas Fair.
Later at the Christmas Fair the gingerbread men flew off the shelves and we eagerly anticipate what our profit might be!
Come and enjoy the Maple Cross JMI & Nursery School’s annual firework display, Saturday 5th October, doors open at 5pm, fireworks starts at 6:15pm. BBQ and refreshments on sale during the event. Tickets available on the night.
We are delighted to hear that the children are enjoying the home learning packs. The children talk about what they have done at home with them. They have been very creative. Here are some pictures of one of the number packs in use. The adult called a number and the child found it on the 100 square.
Today, many nations of the Commonwealth were represented by children and families from Maple Cross school at the annual Ricky Week Carnival Parade. Flags from around the Commonwealth were waved in celebration of The Queen’s 90th Birthday. Many children in Year 4 and 5 also brought along their brass instruments and entertained the crowds with renditions of the national anthem.
Thank you to all who came along.
After school today, children were able to choose a home learning pack to take home! There is a choice of story or number based packs. The children will enjoy the packs until next Wednesday when they will be returned so that they can be prepared for more children to take them home next Thursday.
