Welcome to Cherry Class!
The staff working in Cherry class are Miss Hill, Miss Wykes, Mrs Lister and Miss Kellett. If you have any questions or issues please come and speak to us.
Homework is given out on a Friday evening and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday each week. Homework in Cherry class is a spelling task and something from the homework menu each week. If homework is not returned on time, you will miss a playtime to complete it.
In ICT, we will be learning how to create fact files, posters and presentations using different computer software programmes as well as researching using the internet. Can you remember how to research on the internet? How do we copy and paste using Microsoft Word?
In Science, we are going to be learning about different types of nocturnal animals, researching their habitats, what they eat through food chains and introduce them to vocabulary such as predator and prey. We will also be learning about living, non-living and never alive things and being able to categorise things into the correct option giving scientific reasons why. What is a food chain?
In PE, we will be focussing on our dance skills again with using our knowledge of animals to put our movement interpretations to music. We will be working independently, in pairs and in groups to perform dances about night-time, owls and mice which are nocturnal animals. How could be use our high and low movements in a dance?
In Geography, we will be learning about different places animals come from and where their natural habitat is. We will be linking this to our work on the 7 continents that we learnt earlier this year. Can you remember the 7 continents?
In RE, we will be learning about the resurrection of Jesus through the Easter story. Learning about the celebration and why it began. We will also discuss the significance of Easter eggs, what they represent and why we still have them today. Do you know why we have Easter eggs? Do you know what happened to Jesus at Easter time?
During this term, we are combining our Art and Design Technology topics to make one big project. We are going to be taking inspiration from our first class book of The Owl Who is Afraid of the Dark and create an artistic picture of Plop’s home in the tree using our drawing, painting, collage, and sewing skills to bring the finished product together. As an extra treat we are hoping to get parents in for an afternoon to help with our creative skills so you don’t miss out on all the fun.

In Science, we are going to be learning about healthy living, and how we can be healthy people. As well as thinking about healthy eating, and what foods are good for our bodies, we are also going to think about why we need to exercise to keep our bodies fit. We will also be learning about good hygiene and investigating how germs spread. Do you know why it is so important to get rid of germs and how they spread?
In ICT, we will do something called Coding. We will understand how to use algorithms to move items around the screen and at the end of the unit we will create our own App. What is an app? Why is coding important?
