Hi Cherry Class,
I hope you are all doing well and keeping safe!
It has been great to see all the work you have been sending in to me, especially all the extra things you have been doing. Remember, if you have any questions about the work that has been set for you online please send me an email and I will be more than happy to help.
With the expectation that school will be re-opening to some students on the 1st June. I hope to be seeing some of you very soon!

Hi Cherry Class,
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe!
It has been amazing to hear from so many of you this week. Just hearing about what you have all been up has been great! Obviously, I love receiving your work and seeing how well you are coping with working at home. However, more importantly, it's great just to hear from you all and see what you've been up to with your families at home. As you can see, I'm adding new pictures to the class page each week and I would love to get more!
Please get in contact with me if you need any help with your work, or just want to let me know how you are getting on.

Hello Cherry Class,
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe.
This has been a strange start to the summer term but I know you will all be working hard at home. Some of you have sent me a few pieces of work and it has been great for me to be able to read through them! Please keep sending me your work each week, as I enjoy seeing how you are getting on. I have also had some pictures sent in (which I have uploaded) and I would love to have more to add to our class page.
Remember I am still here to help with anything you are struggling with or have questions about. Please email me if you need any help or clarification about the work that has been set for you.
School Closure Information
Cherry Class - I miss you already! Please, please stay safe and at home. But try to get some fresh air every day - in your garden or walking in the local area. Keep yourselves busy with lots of different activities - some school based, some home based.
Every day, Monday - Friday you should be competing a variety of school based tasks. (see packs given out on Friday)
30 minutes of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
1 hour of English
1 hour of Maths
1 hour of science / geography / art etc
Also, make sure you do something active such as dancing, skipping or trampolining as well as lots of reading.
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.
This year we are being taught by: Mr McMillan, Mrs Sharif and Mrs Walker.
Homework for half term:
Read a book (or even two!) and review it on Our Reading Den: https://www.ourreadingden.com/
Years 5 and 6 led the carol service at St Mary's Church. The service included many traditional readings and carols, and an alternative wording to the 12 Days of Christmas. The words and artwork for the song are above. We wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas season.
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), although please ensure that labelled kit is in school at all times.
Forest Schools: The children will be taking part of forest schools on Tuesdays this half term. They will need to ensure that they bring long trousers, a long-sleeved top and a waterproof coat (in case it rains).
Homework: Maths and English homework are both set on Fridays, to be returned by the following Wednesday.
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.
Useful learning apps for tablets
If you have any more suggestions please let me know so that we can share them with other parents.
