Well done to our learner of the week! For his fantastic work in maths and always trying his best!

We have been using this song to help us learn about the 7 continents of the world.

Take a look at our whole class piece of art!

This term our Topic is 'Our World'.

In English this week we have listened to Louis Armstrong's 'What a wonderful world' and then wrote our own verses in this style. 

Listen to some of our wonderful work!

The learner of the week is...

For making a great start to the school year. She is always ready to learn and tries her best. Sophie has written a brilliant ‘Guide to Earth’ this week and has been a great friend to everyone in Cherry Class.

We have had a great start to the year and it has been lovely to see everyone and we are looking forward to a great ahead. 
Please see below this terms homework. 

Welcome Back! We can’t wait to see you all again and are excited to be back in school together.

We are really looking forward to a fantastic year ahead!


Please remember to use the Cherry email if you have any questions to ask or information to give us - we will reply as promptly as possible.

We will be sending reading books home on Fridays; however, I will also continue to monitor reading on BugClub too. On a Friday your child will choose 2/3 books to take home for the week; these will then need to be returned the following Friday. Please be assured that reading books will ‘quarantined’ before they are use the home. 

Home learning will be set next week and is to be completed through the term. It is due on Monday 19th October. Each day children are expected to do a short reading and maths activity at home. It is vital to practise these keys skills every day to help your child to make good progress. This may include Mathletics, BugClub, practising the year 2 spellings or 30/60 Club practise (addition and subtraction/times tables). Further ideas can be found on our class page in the school website.


PE will be on Wednesdays and children need to come to school in their PE kits. As we move towards Autumn it will be important for children to wear dark tracksuit trousers and their school jumper to stay warm. Trainers will also be more practical and comfortable to wear all day. Earrings need to be taken out or covered at home.  Please ensure that any clothing and belongings brought into school are clearly labelled including water bottles, lunch boxes, book bags, all items in their PE kit, school uniform and coats. Please ensure your child brings a filled water bottle into school every day.


Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a great year ahead. Don’t forget to check our class page on the school website.
