Stamford Park Primary School

Maple - Year 2


Welcome to Maple Class page. My name is Mr. Hines and I am the class teacher for Maple Class.


I have been teaching at Stamford Park Primary School for seventeen years and have experience teaching Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. I love teaching very much. Being with the children and furthering their learning is something I am very passionate about. I want all children in Maple Class, and the wider school, to enjoy their time here. Please do not hesitate to approach if there are any questions which you wish to ask me. 



Our PE day is Wednesday for this half term. 



Year 2 will have a spelling test each Friday. Spellings will be uploaded to their Seesaw account. Your children will also be issued with a spelling book. Please only use one page for spelling practice, with the following page being used for the test. 


Homework and suggested activities  

Homework and suggested activities will be uploaded to Seesaw each Friday. Please let me know if you have any problems with the homework or suggested activities.

Maple Class will change their reading books on a Tuesday and Friday. Please remember to sign your child's reading record before their book can be changed.

School Council Fundraising


This year, the school council would like children to create Christmas Cards and support Mission Christmas. 


Firstly, the children have been asked to make cards for people who may be lonely and isolated this Christmas. These should be done on card, be colourful and have a nice poem/message inside. Please return them to school for Thursday 11th November.


Secondly, we are supporting Mission Christmas in partnership with HITS radio. They send gifts to children who are less fortunate and otherwise wouldn't receive gifts at Christmas. Any donations would be gratefully received. Please remember to label the present with the appropriate age group. The deadline for gifts is Friday 10th December.
