Welcome to Maple Class!


Hello everyone. My name is Mrs Eastwood and I am the teacher of our wonderful Early Years (EYFS) children.

My favourite subjects to teach are PE and English. I also love to play outside in the mud kitchen! 

We have so much fun in Maple Class; playing on the clamber stack, exploring our environment and loving our learning! 

We are supported by Miss Harris (Schools Direct student teacher), Mrs Scott (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Tuite (EY and KS1 Lead).

We know that a child's first year in school is very important, and we are committed to making every day special!

We believe that children learn best when they are happy, feeling confident and enjoying every moment. This way, they develop independence and eagerness to learn; the foundations of future success.

Our Curriculum

In Maple Class, children learn through play and practical activities based on the seven areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
When they first start with us we will help them to settle in by focussing on three prime areas that are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.  

Alongside these, children are also supported in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. 

We love learning in Maple!

Maple Class have a purpose built indoor classroom and garden where they can learn and play whilst being supported by knowledgeable and skilled adults.

Teachers and other adults support the children in Maple by engaging with them in their playful experiences. They challenge and extend the children's thinking and explore new ideas and concepts alongside them.

Adults and children document the learning in many forms. Often, this is through photographs and videos on our online platform 'Seesaw', this means that you can see what they have been doing and talk to them about their learning. 


Much of our physical development happens in our dedicated learning space. We also enjoy a weekly PE session. This year our PE day is on a Tuesday, children should come to school dressed in their PE kit. 

Every Day

Each day your child needs to bring:
Book Bag
Water bottle
Lunch (if not having a school lunch)

The children in Maple are entitled to a free piece of fruit each day. 
Children are entitled to free milk until they are 5 (you can opt to pay after this). 


We ask you to read your child's reading book with them for 10 minutes each day. They will read their reading book to an adult in school at least twice a week and they will read daily within our phonics sessions.
