Maple 2018 - 2019

Mrs Hargreaves


I am delighted to be joining the Kingsley team as the new Maple teacher! Teaching has been a much-anticipated aspiration of mine, so after spending several joyful (albeit eventful!) years in an Early Years setting, I decided to take the plunge and embark upon a career in teaching. Consequently, I have just completed my Primary Education degree at the University of Chester, achieving a first class honours and being awarded Student Teacher of the Year 2018 at the Cheshire School Awards! Outside of school, I love spending time with my four-year-old son, Zachary (I'm sure your child will fill you in on our latest adventures, they seem to love nothing more than hearing about them!)


Welcome to Team Maple!

Following our action-packed start at the Conway Centre, the children are already blowing my socks off with their fabulous commitment to learning as we settle into our new routines. I’m certain that they will continue to make me proud during the duration of our time together!

If, for any reason, you need to speak to me then please don’t hesitate to catch me at the classroom door at the start or end of the day, or speak to the office to arrange and appointment to see me.

Below is some information that you may require during your child’s time in Maple.


Class Apacas!

We are lucky enough to have not one but two class pets, our rainbow alpacas, Max and Candyfloss! Each Friday I will select a child for Mrs. Hargreaves’ Superstar of the Week, and they will receive a medal and an alpaca for a weekend sleepover! I will also select a runner-up to take home the remaining alpaca! Please ensure that your child returns the alpaca and medal on the following Monday.


Kingsley Journals

Please ensure that these are brought into school on a daily basis, as this will be the main form of contact between school and home. Please also find your child's weekly spellings and weekly guided reading homeworks in their journals.  



Homework can be found in your child's journal in the form of a 'Homework Menu'.

In addition, weekly homework for Team Maple is:

  • Weekly spellings - spelling tests will be moving to a Monday as of 15.09.18.
  • Daily reading for pleasure - I have attached a fabulous book list below if you’re in need of good book ideas!
  • Guided reading homework - this will be set when I do a guided read with your child (on the same day each week / your child will be able to inform you of this day) and your child will have one week to complete it.
  • Times tables practise
  • MyMaths tasks 


Optional homework: Bug Club

Your child has the login and passwords in their journals.  I have allocated texts for your children to read.  This is not compulsory and is for children to enjoy books pitched at their reading level.



Please ensure that PE kits are kept in for the whole week.  Currently, PE days are a Tuesday (indoor) and a Thursday (outdoor).  Trainers will also be needed each day for the daily mile.
