Welcome to the

Cherry Class Page


This year Cherry will be taught by:

Mrs Wendt, Mrs Daisley

and Mrs Nwaeke. 

In Cherry Class we live through the school values of Grace, Courage and Friendship. We support each other to do the best learning we can. 


Week ending 02.12.22


We have had a busy week filled with wonderful learning, rehearsals and Christmas fun! This is what we have learnt this week:



We carried on looking at History Hackers: Roman Rescue this week, focusing on innovating the story by using substitution and addition. The children came up with some lovely ideas in their independent write. They worked really hard at editing their writing using the success criteria.



We looked at balancing equations this week, using different methods to add and subtract. The children had lots of arithmetic practice this week!



We have focused on VIPERS skills this week, practicing Explanation and inference skills. The children created lovely posters to showcase their understanding of these skills.



The children in PE are working on ball skills and how to properly warm up and cool down to keep our bodies safe. We are also looking at skills in football.




Growth mindset



Well done Cherry class!


Christmas Show


We are thrilled to be starting rehearsals for the Phase 1 Christmas Show, especially after not being able to do them for a few years. The casting has been done and your children may be bringing home lines that they need to learn outside of school so that we can focus on blocking the show inside school. All children will also be involved in the singing so below are the song lyrics needed for the show. The backing tracks for the songs are here:



Christmas stockings in DT and a visit from Berry the Elf!

Children in Need Pyjama Day

Reindeer visit

RE lesson -How special is the relationship that Jews have with God?

Creating objects used in the Bronze Age

Class Notices:

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. 


P.E.: Cherry Class have PE on Monday and Thursday. The children will need to wear their PE kits to school - not their school uniform. They will remain to their PE kits all day. Please still ensure that all items are labelled. 


Homework: Maths and Spelling homework are both set on Thursdays, to be returned by the following Thursday. It is expected that children read at least 5 x per week at home. They will give in their reading records on a Thursday and receive a house point if they have had 5 signatures in their reading record. Children may read independently, but we encourage parents to listen to them read aloud and discuss the text as often as possible. 


Spellings will be set every week and each child will bring a copy of their spellings home with them. The spellings will also be put on Teams along with the homework, for your convenience.
