DT: Come Dine with me! We will be working collaboratively to research a range of starters, mains and desserts according to set ingredients, making the meal and then evaluating and giving each meal a score.
COMPUTING: For the full Autumn term, we are going to be studying Coding. We will develop our coding skills and then design our own coding programme to share with others to show what we have learned.
RSE: The theme for this half term is Being Me. In Maple, we will be finding out about body image and what it means to have a negative and positive body image.
