Welcome to Cherry Class


Our Cherry Tree Of Goals


Class teacher: Miss Becky Denby with Miss Emma Monteiro 

TAs: Miss Amina Hoque; Miss Nicky Ralph; Mrs Sue Hall


Summer 2017


This half term we are exploring Ancient Egypt. We will be learning about the civilization, developing our geography and history skills. In art we are going to create amulets as well as a sarcophagus!


PE: This half term our PE Days are WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY. Please make sure children have their PE kits in school. We will be doing PE outdoors and so children will need jogging bottoms and a jumper for the cold weather.


Reading: Reading is so important and children should try to read as often as possible. Please write in their reading records to record any home reading. In our classroom, we have a reading corner as well as a mini-library, where children can borrow books during the day and take them home to read.



Spelling: Children will be given new spellings to learn each week and will be tested on Fridays.


Homework: Please see the links below. Homework is due in at the end of each half term. We look forward to seeing the work children have created at home!

Reading Dens


Every Friday afternoon, children create dens in the classroom using blankets and cushions. The lights are turned off and children use torches to read books.




Investigation Station


In our class, we have an 'Investigation Station', where puzzles and riddles are left for children to solve. Children have been using maths, science and literacy skills to solve riddles, crack codes and conduct experiments, earning house points for their efforts.


This half term, children are investigating times tables; they are looking for patterns and creating inventive methods for memorising them.
