Homework Grid Spring 1


Hi Maple,


I have attached your new homework grid below. 

I really enjoy looking at the homework you do and send to me on Google Classroom. It always makes me smile :)

Thank you for all the hard work you do at home and thank you to your parents for supporting you with homework.

Remember, you choose what you would like to do from the homework grid. We ask that you complete at least 1 task per week, but you can do more if you want. 

I am looking forward to seeing some more fantastic homework!

Our Topic - Who is your hero?


Over the last 6 weeks we have been learning about heroes. 

Our topic working wall helps us to see an overview of everything we have learnt. 


What do you think?

Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole


During our topic, we have learnt about the lives of 2 significant people. Alongside this, we decided to learn some important skills. This week we have learnt how to apply a bandage to a wound and create our own herbal remedies, just like Mary Seacole. 


Take a look at the fun we had! 



Google Classroom


We are now putting homework on Google Classroom for the children to complete. 

There would also be learning put onto Google Classroom if the school had to shut due to unforeseen circumstances.

There has been an invitation sent for them to accept and join the classroom. 

Every child has their e mail address and password which they will need to access the classroom in their reading record book. 

I am also attaching a guide to using Google Classroom which will hopefully help you if you are new to this!

If you need any support with this, please contact your child's teacher or me (Mrs Waddell) and one of us can go through this with you. 

There are also useful Read, Write, Inc videos for the children to watch to support their learning in school. 


Remember: we are here to help!

Who is your hero?


This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from some real life heroes:

Lisa and John our PCSO’s

Sergeant Dickinson a police officer

Vicky and her guide dog Albie

and Mrs Waddell - our longest serving teacher at New Moston. 


The children thought of questions they could ask our heroes about their jobs.

Superheroes and Biscuits - what more could you want? 


We designed our own superhero logo and then had a go at creating our own biscuit. We have evaluated our biscuits stating what we liked, what could be improved and of course completed a taste test! 


Have a a look at some of our designs 😋

A big hello Maple Class! 


We have had a great first week getting to know each other and our new classroom. Mrs Whittaker and I are looking forward to this year! In our assembly this week, Miss Maynard talked about a new year, making new memories and writing your own story of Year 2 - hopefully this blog will show all of our memories over the year.


On here, I will be posting updates on what we get up to in school; lessons, amazing pieces of learning and star of the week to name a few things. 


I am looking forward to next week with you and getting to know you even more!
