Welcome to Cherry Class

Here are some general pointers to help you and your child:

  • Please listen to your child read for around 5 minutes every night and ask questions afterwards.
  • Help them to practise for their weekly Maths Passport test and relevant times tables.
  • Ensure your child brings their book bag containing their reading and home-link books to school every day.
  • PE kits are to be kept in school each week and taken home half-termly for washing.

Spring term project

Our question for Spring will be 'How can small actions eventually change the world?'

We will focus on the environment, climate change and pollution. There will be a visit from the RSPB in January to help us learn how to create suitable habitats for wild animals on the school grounds. In March, we will be busy planting around 180 trees and hedge plants (free from the Woodland Trust) around the bike track on the school field. As well as making the area look more attractive, this will also create homes for many birds, small animals and insects for years to come.

We would like to encourage you to explore this project at home with your child. Some example activities that you could do at home to support your child’s learning are:

  • Find out about global warming/climate change
  • Discuss what you recycle at home and  why
  • Watch shows (on YouTube for example) about plastic pollution

What do you think of one of our animations of Theseus and the Minotaur from our Autumn term project, 'What makes a great story?'
