Welcome to the
Cherry Class Page
Make Do and Mend
After half term we will be "Making Do and Mending" - the children will be making something new from something old in the spirit of World War 2 making do. They will plan what to make before half term, and will need to collect the necessary materials over half term. They have to make something useful, and cannot buy anything that they might need - it has to be recycled. We have warned them not to "borrow" anything without asking first!
Year 5 Homework
Due in Monday 10th June (in time for our WWII Tea Party!)
Choose an aspect of the war you would like to find out more about.
- Role of women in the war (Land army, codebreaker at Bletchley Park…)
- World war 2 aeroplanes/ tanks/ships etc.
- Causes of the Second World War
- The Blitz
- Key event/ battle (not Battle of Britain or D-Day)
- … any other aspect of the war that you are interested in finding out about.
All the finished projects will be exhibited at the VE celebration tea party so it will need to be of a high standard.
Your finished project may take the form of:
A 3D model with explanation (gas mask with booklet, Anderson shelter, model allotment with information…)
An information board (think of the ones we used for the quiz on our WW2 workshop day – could include diagrams, maps, facts, quotes…)
Booklet/ diary/collection of letters
No PowerPoints for this project please! All children’s work will be displayed at our exhibition in the hall during the WWII Tea Party.
World War 2
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.
Curriculum Focus Summer 2019
Our topic will be World War II.
(Well done to all of the children - their homework they have completed is fabulous!)
