Welcome to Cherry Class

Take a listen to this 'soundtrack'  to Wisp, a Story of Hope by Zana Fraillon and Grahame Baker-Smith -created by Henry Wright using Garageband!


What do you think? Does it make you want to read the whole story?

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

  • We will be going swimming on Tuesday mornings in the first term, so your child will need a swimming costume / trunks and a towel for this.
  • Please listen to your child read for around 5 minutes every night and ask questions afterwards or let them complete a Reading Buddy sesson independently.
  • 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.
