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 (20.09.21)
This week we will be extending our number sense and understand of place value during Maths sessions, including problem solving and reasoning.
In English we will be innovating our text of Little Red Riding Hood, using Talk for Writing.
During Topic sessions we will learn about the time line of Ancient Egypt.
In PE we will be focusing on Tag Rugby and general PE skills.
Cherry Class are being taught Clarinet in Music lessons this half term by Berkshire Maestros!
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.
