Welcome back!
Welcome to the Malpas Class page. Our class is made up of 27 brilliant young learners. They are an amazing group of children who are a pleasure to work with.
We hope that you had a pleasant Christmas holiday and that you are keen to get going again. We hope that your child continues to be happy and work hard with us and we would like to emphasise again that we are here to work with you to achieve this. If you have any concerns at any time, please let us know as soon as you can so we can address them. We use ClassDojo and Facebook to communicate messages so please keep an eye out on both platforms. If you are finding difficulty accessing one of these please let us know.
We are extremely excited for our new topic focus this term - The Americas.
We will be learning all about the Americas, considering geography, history, art and design and technology. 
As part of this half term's topic we had an immersion day. This gave the children the opportunity to experience life as an American summer camper. They took part in cabin songs, baseball, friendship crafts and made smores by the campfire. It was a fun day enjoyed by all!
