Break time with Cherry Class! 🦆
This term we are studying Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. If you have a copy of the book at home please can you bring it into school. We will be reading extracts of the book during English lessons and writing tasks will also be based around the books.
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.: This half term Cherry class will have P.E. on Fridays (weather permitting). 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 English homework are both set on Fridays, to be returned by the following Friday.
Spellings will be set every week; however, we have given the children an overview sheet for all the spellings for this half term. Please try to learn these at home - there will be a test every Friday.

Read a book (or even two!) and review it on Our Reading Den: https://www.ourreadingden.com/
Writing - These are the objectives that the children and teachers use to assess and mark writing tasks. They do not have to do every objective in one piece of writing, it can be across a few pieces.
Below are some home learning packs for each year group from White Rose Maths, which is a scheme we use in school. There are videos to help explain the area of maths the children are looking at and activities to go with it.
Useful learning apps for tablets
If you have any more suggestions please let me know so that we can share them with other parents.
