Welcome to the
Cherry Class Page
We'll meet again...... See you in Year 6!
We had an amazing time at Bushcraft, near Knebworth. On the first day we learnt to make fires and cooked our lunch on the fires that we had made. We were put in three tribes: Woodland Creatures, Tree Kangaroos and Three Lions. Each tribe made a shelter.
We were taught first aid skills on Tuesday and had to put them to the test when we discovered our teachers in a plane crash in the woods. We carried them away from danger and performed first aid on them. They all survived…. We also made bush bracelets with special cord and learnt how to use knives safely.
Some of us slept out under our shelters on the second night. We were very warm and most slept better than in the tents the night before.
On the last day we were taught how to tie knots and make animal traps. We put our skills into practice by trapping Miss Shepherd, Mr Grosvenor and Mrs Tawse! At the end the Bushcraft champions were announced: Tree Kangaroos!
Thank you to the amazing Bushcraft team who looked after us so well.
We are amazing street dancers!
Look at our allotment now!

This is Cherry Class!
Welcome to the Cherry Class page. We are taught by Mr Bevan and Mrs Tawse. Mrs Page is our Teaching Assistant every morning.
SUPER SIX: Please could you help your child to make sure they have the essential items at school: writing pen, pencil, rubber, ruler, pencil sharpener & glue stick. The children are beginning to run out of some items and may forget to tell you.
P.E.: This term Cherry class will have P.E. on Tuesdays and Fridays (weather permitting), although please ensure that labelled kit is in school at all times.
Homework: Maths homework is set on Wednesday, for return by the following Monday. Other homework may also be set - such as Mathletics, Topic or English. All children are expected to read daily.
Please ensure that your child knows their times tables: 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 & 12. It helps to test them in a random order. Use the Times Table Test link at the bottom of the page to help!
Spellings will be set every week. Please try to learn these at home - there will be a test every Friday.
