Welcome to Cherry Class 2023-2024


Hello, we are Cherry Class!


Useful Information

Monday: Cherry class are allowed to bring something in to show us or they can tell us something interesting. This must be something which links to our topics or something interesting which they may have found during the weekend, on a walk or from the holidays. This helps the children to gain confidence when speaking in front of others and encourages them to be a good listener when others are speaking.

P.E Days

Tuesday: Outdoor (Please ensure that your child has warm clothes to wear for PE during colder weather)

Wednesday: Indoor PE

Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their active uniform on our PE days.  Refer to the Uniform Policy if you are unsure.

Please make sure that all of your child's belongings are clearly labelled.

Topic Homework:

Each half term, a topic homework grid is sent out within each key stage. Please support your child by helping them complete some of the fun activities. They can bring in photographs or models to school to show us in class. All children will be awarded with house points and raffle tickets. Have fun!

Weekly Homework:

Lots of our weekly homework will need to be completed online. We will support children who are unable to access this at home. Your child will have a copy of their login details in the front of their reading diary. Over the first few weeks of term, we will teach your children how to login and direct them to the correct homework for the week. If you are unsure about any of these, please pop in for a chat.


In Cherry class, we love to read! Please support your child by helping them to bring their reading book and diary every single day. All children will have a yellow reading bookmark, which gives examples of questions you could ask whilst your child is reading. This encourages them to gain confidence with comprehension and retrieval.

Your child will also have a 'Reading Trail' in the front of their diary. Certificates and rewards are given for completed reading trails. Please have a go at the different challenges. The local libraries have lots of books which your child can borrow for free and they often hold their own reading challenges for children as well. We also have lots of lovely books in school which your child is welcome to borrow.

Every time your child reads at home they will be awarded with raffle tickets and entered into our weekly raffle prize draw!

Thursday: ICT Room

Friday: Award Day! Superstar Award, English or Maths Award, House Champion and Cherry class award someone with a medal of Kindness.

Autumn Term 1 2023

Tuesday 5th- Friday 8th September: What a fantastic start to the term we have all had! Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Atkin are very proud of how we have settled back into school life. The year 2's have been showing how to be responsible and have been helping the new year 1's. The year 1's have made new friends and had lots of fun working collaboratively in our provision areas. Every morning, Mrs. Evans sets us a morning challenge. This week we have read some lovely books, had a go at some handwriting and lots more activities. Well done everybody!
