Welcome to the
Cherry Class Page
This year Cherry will be taught by:
Miss Hawker, Mrs Daisley
and Mrs Mortimer.
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.
The week ahead (17.01.22)
This week, in Maths, the children in year 4 will be continuing their unit on multiplication and will be exploring strategies to multiply larger 2 digit numbers. Year 3 children will also be learning about multiplication.
In English we will be experimenting with different ways to innovate our poetry, including looking at vocabulary for senses, changing the setting of our poem or changing rhyming patterns.
During our Science lessons we are looking at plants and living things. We will be finding out about what plants needs and why.
Last week we looked at compass direction and 4 figure grid references in Topic, and this week we will start to explore more about England and in particular London.
In PE we will be focusing on Hockey and general PE skills.
Art skills involve printing this term and we are making our own Styrofome printing tiles of London landmarks!
Cherry Class will be doing singing in Music time as well as percussion with Miss Hardy our super musical student teacher!
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 Tuesday 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 housepoint 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.
