Welcome to Cherry Class
Cherry is taught by:
Mrs Prebble, Mrs Coe, Miss Gilkes
and Miss Kaushal.
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.
This term our topic is:
London and the British Isles
Year 3 and 4 Spelling Words and Handwriting Sheets
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 or English are set on Fridays, to be returned by the following Thursday. It is expected that children read at least 5 x per week at home. They will receive house points for doing their homework well. 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 taught at school every week.

In computing this half term we are learning what a database is. This week we went on the laptops and created a database of our own and then looked at how to make charts and graphs from the data.
In PSHE we will be thinking about our dreams and goals. This week we thought about advice to give to people whose dreams have been broken and how to help them to develop resilience. We then acted out the scenarios.
