Welcome to Mae Carol Jemison Class


In this wonderful Class you will find 29 very curious and inquisitive children who are really looking forward to building their resilience , resourcefulness and collaborative skills, just like our JONK characters! We have Mrs Duffield and Mrs Betts as our teachers and Miss Bennet, Mrs McGuire, Mrs Aish, Mrs Phelps and Miss Sambrook to help us over the week. We are going to be super busy just like bumblebees and can't wait to explore more of what Mundesley Infant School has to offer!

What are we learning about this term?

This term in Mae Carol Jemison Class, we are learning about a topic called Celebrations, which focuses on the importance of celebrations in Indian culture. India is the seventh biggest country in the world and has a population of 1.2 billion people - that’s a lot of people! So how does such a big country bring people together as a community? Well, that’s what we’re going to find out!

To begin this term’s unit, we will be learning the four countries of the UK: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and their capital cities. We will explore the five oceans and seven continents of the world, before comparing the geography of the UK to India. We will also find out about how people in India celebrate different ceremonies, such as weddings and Diwali (the ‘festival of lights’). We will also find out about the importance of music to Indian celebrations, and will compose some of our own music. In art, we’ll be designing some rangoli and mehndi patterns. Towards the end of the unit, we’ll be putting our taste buds to good use in DT, by making (and tasting) some of our own Indian baking!

I love this class. We learn some really fun and exciting things. My favourite topic this year was the Stone Age. We learnt about where our ancestors came from.

I love maths. This year I feel like I have been really challenged. I get to complete extra work which is really tricky. I use my JONK skills to help me.
