Welcome to Maple Class 2021-2022


Your children are taught by Mr Pyke.

We are also very lucky to have Mrs Clegg in our class Monday to Thursday and Mrs Sherlock on Friday.

Mrs Clegg- Class Teaching Assisstant

Autumn Term - Who were our prehistoric ancestors?

English - Summer

In our English lessons, we will be exploring the book: ‘The Dragon Machine’ by our class author Helen Ward. We will write diary entries, a report on bearded dragons and our own story in the style of The Dragon Machine. We will also be sharing a class book every day, and this term we will be reading the Roald Dahl classic ‘The BFG’, which we know the children will love. In Year 3 the children also keep a book on their desks for independent reading.

Science - Light

Our science work this term will be exploring the physics of light, followed by looking at my favourite topic: rocks! We would love for the children to investigate these science topics at home too, by looking for sources of light in the home and by finding their own rocks, which we encourage them to bring into school.


Please encourage the children to access the TT Rockstars websure as much as possible.  It is imperative that they get a good understanding of mental multiplication to help them in their maths journey at Dallam Primary.



Each Monday your child will be bringing home some new spellings that they need to practice in school as well as at home. On Friday we have our weekly spelling test. You can help your child at home by practising. A useful website:   www.spellingtraining.com

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.





Here are some useful and reccomended websites that you can look at with your child at home.

Maths - TT Rockstars


Reading - Oxford Reading Buddy


Science - BBC Bitesize


If you would like any help or further information then please feel free to ask at the end of the school day.
