Maple Class Year 6

Welcome to Maple Class 
 
Our theme this term is: On The Move!
In Maple this term, we will be learning through the theme of 'On The Move'. We will be finding out about why people move from one place to another. 
We will be looking at the book 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' in English to begin to understand one of the reasons why people may move from one country to another.
