Welcome to Cherry Class
Cherry is taught by:
Miss Hawker, Mrs Coe
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:
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 English this week we have been working together to create our own story based on the structure of Little Red Riding Hood. We have also been looking at determiners in grammar and we are continuing to revisit the VIPERS skills in whole class reading.
In Maths the children have been continuing to revise their understanding of number and place value using a variety of practical resources such as number lines and base 10 equipment.
History and Geography
This term we are looking at the history of the Ancient Egyptians. The children were looking at timelines this week to understand when the Ancient Egyptians lived and were placing events in chronological order.
This term in PE we will be learning about dance and our theme is superheroes. This week we revisited our freeze frames and then worked on adding transitions to link them together. The children worked really hard and their performances were brilliant. We agreed that it was important to work together as a team and to compromise to get the best results. The children have also begun learning how to play netball.
In Art we continued to look at mixing colours and shades of colour. The children are working on creating an Egyptian silhouette picture using these skills.
This week we continued to look at the digestive system and learnt a little bit more about what happens to our food once it enters our body. We discussed the role of the liver, peristalsis and enzymes.
In computing we are continuing to look at networks. This week we were looking at how information moves around a network and at some examples of real world networks.
In PSHE we are learning about building positive relationships with people. This week we were looking at friendships and how to solve conflict with others.
This week the children were learning about the main beliefs of Hinduism and were looking in more detail at why Hindus celebrate Diwali.
