Welcome to the

Cherry Class Page


From January, Cherry will be taught by:

Miss Townly, Miss Hawker, Mrs Wendt, Mrs Daisley

and Mrs Nwaeke. 

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. 


Class Notices:

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 Monday 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. This term, Cherry Class will have Forest schools on a Thursday. Please send children to school in their PE kits, including trousers. They will also need a warm/waterproof coat, a bag with named wellington boots and on particularly cold weeks, a hat and gloves as well. 


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 house point 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.

Week ending 24.03.23


What an amazing week we had this week, celebrating all things STEM. On Monday we kicked off our week with an interhouse engineering competition, which involved each group having a different project to complete followed by the INCREDIBLE science fair. We were amazed by the different science investigation including an amazing example of the water cycle, making oxygen and testing memory and that was just from Cherry class! 

We were also treated to seeing Motorbikes and an amazing forensic workshop! It has been such a  fantastic week!
