    Hi everybody. I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I've enjoyed looking at all the work you have been sending in from home. Well done and keep it going. It's great to see all the fantastic learning you have been doing. I'd like to say a great big thank you to all the grown-ups who are helping you do do your learning.

    In school we have been enjoying junk-modelling and making lots of different models. As you can see from the photo a particular favourite this week has been making mini-beasts. We also looked for information about minibeasts. "You can look with your eyes," Jaxson told us. "Look in books," said Emmie. "You can look on the internet," said Betsy. Next week is the Big Garden Birdwatch so we have also been looking around to see what kinds of birds we can see. More on this next week. Take care and stay safe.

    Well done to everyone this week!

     I know you have been working very hard at home as well as in school. Even though I’ve been working from home this week I’ve been able to see what you have all been doing and I’ve enjoyed looking at the work you have done – especially all the fantastic writing about your holiday news. Well done!

    I want to say a great big thank-you to all the grown-ups for all the help they are giving those of you who are learning at home.

    I heard a great joke this week.

    How do you cut the sea in half?

    Use a see-saw.

    Have a lovely weekend. I’ll be in touch next week.

    Happy New Year to everybody! Let’s hope we can get back to normal as soon as possible. We are really missing all of you. In school we’ve been working hard – writing, counting and doing our phonics. If you watch the videos on the blog you’ll see what we have been doing. Here is a photo of us exploring the ice that formed during these cold nights we’ve been having. Louie told us, “It’s cold.” “It’s slippery,” said Emmie. Have you seen any ice? what did it look like? How did it feel? Where did the ice come from? What will happen to it?

    Next week we will be posting more on-line learning and videos to help you with your learning at home. I want to say a big thank-you to all the grown-ups who are helping you with your learning at home. See you next week. ‚Äč

    I can't believe it but we have finished our first term. The fourteen weeks in school have gone so quickly. Our last week has been hectic and the highlight was our Christmas Party day on Wednesday. We had our Christmas dinner, watched a message from Santa at the North Pole, got some early Christmas presents for Cherry Class and had a  party. All in one day! The rest of the week the children have been finishing off their Christmas crafts - making patterns,  writing their Christmas cards and lists for Santa and exploring 3D shapes.

    So, from all of us in Cherry Class we wish you a very Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year. Enjoy the holidays and see you in 2021!

    We built a sleigh this week using the community blocks and used it to deliver presents. "I'm an elf now," Hugo told me as he took presents from the sleigh to 'deliver' to the children. "I'm Rudolph, red nose reindeer," said Louie.

    We've also been making patterns using multi-link, paper chain patterns and stripy socks to go on our elves.

    For writing we have been creating our own Christmas card and writing a message inside.

    Telling Christmas jokes is very popular in Cherry Class - can your child tell you one of our jokes?

    What do snowmen do at the weekend?  ............. Chill out.

    If you have a joke you think we might enjoy send it in with your child and they can share it with the class.

    Our learning in phonics is really starting to have a positive impact on our writing. This week lots of children in Cherry Class have been inspired to write, sounding out words, writing the sounds  and reading them back. Mason wrote his word on the whiteboard and read it back to me; "s-u-n-sun." "P-e -n is pen," Sam told me. "C-a-t is cat," said Rae. "L-o-g, log," Syzmon could tell me. 

    We also reminded ourselves how to keep safe by washing our hands properly and sneezing and coughing using a tissue or the crook of our elbow to sneeze and cough into. We did a science experiment to see how using a tissue can stop germs spreading. 

    We have also been practising our Nativity - watch this space next Friday for the Cherry Class Nativity.

    Our word of the week was 'into'.

    Our sound of the week was 'g'.

    Our numbers of the week  were 15 and 16.

    In our reading we were learning to summarise what we have read.

    Aliens have arrived in Cherry Class this week. The children have really enjoyed role-playing, being aliens and astronauts. We have been reading lots of books with a space theme and a favourite has been Aliens Love Underpants. 

    In Maths we have been estimating how many objects we think there are in a group and counting carefully to check how good our estimates were. In writing we have been listening for and saying the sounds in simple words in the order in which they occur.

    Word of the week - into.

    Sound of the week - d

    Numbers of the week - 13,14

    We've had a really exciting week this week with so much happening. Our playground has had a makeover and we've loads of colourful games and activities to use outside.

    This week is Diwali; the Hindu and Sikh festival of light. We enjoyed watching how Diwali is celebrated and we made our own lanterns and created Rangoli patterns. 

    You can see from the picture how we got involved in Children in Need. We made our own Pudsey bears. The children particularly enjoyed making Pudsey 'ears' and we did the  Joe Wickes Children in Need workout. 

    Even with all this happening we also managed to do some learning in Maths and Literacy - counting objects up to 10 and writing our names.

    For Bonfire Night we explored mixing colours to create some firework backing paper to use in our classroom.

    The children have been making use of the fine weather to explore and enjoy our outside area this week. Our mud kitchen was really busy earlier in the week and we had lots of mud pies being made by the children in their role play. 

    In Maths we have been looking at shapes and looking for them in our classroom and outside. Lauren showed me a  bath from the playhouse furniture; "It's a rectangle." 

    We've also been having fun reading nonsense rhymes and poems. Spike Milligan's "On the Ning Nang Nong" has been a favourite.
