Welcome to the
Cherry Class Page
This year Cherry will be taught by:
Miss Hawker, Mrs Wendt, 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.
Week ending 01.07.22
We had lots of fun and learning this week!
We started our block on Matilda, acting out some exciting scenes from the playscript. The children compared the scene from the play, the book and the movie, sharing fantastic ideas about the similarities and differences.
We looked at a poem called 'Earth, Sea and Sky' this week, focusing on the skill retrieval, amongst our other VIPERS skills. There were some particularly interesting descriptions and vocabulary used which can help us in our own writing.
We started our Geometry block this week, looking at properties of shapes. We especially focused on turns and different types of angles.
The children enjoyed a new listening game and played basketball this week. Many exciting games were enjoyed during the Year 9 Leadership day on Wednesday.
Please remember to have your Super Six ready for Monday.
Well done Cherry class!

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.
