Welcome to Cherry Class! 


I hope you had a fantastic Summer break and are ready for the year ahead! We have lots of different things to cover this term.  In English we are looking at 2 focus books, 'Only One You' and 'The Noisy House'.  We will be using these texts to write lists, captions and labels as well as creating our own stories.  In maths we are focusing on place value, counting and addition.  Science will be looking at growth and survival, both in humans and animals and in art we will be producing self portraits.  Our topis is 'All About Me' so we will be looking at where we live and the history of Carterton as well as things that make us individuals. 


Please come to this page to see photos and for any messages.

  • Outdoor PE will be on a Thursday and Indoor PE will be on a Friday. PE kit should be in school everyday. 


  • Book bags should come to school everyday.

Homework - 50 Point Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new half term and the build up to the most magical time of the year ( I can't bring myself to write the 'C' word yet!) 


We have lots to fit in over the next six and a half weeks and lots of exciting topics to explore including super scientists and great explorers!  Alongside this we will be continuing to develop our love of books with a focus on a Michael Morpurgo book, 'Coming Home' ( which was used as a John Lewis advert one year) and also 'The Christmas Truce' which is all about the football match played in no mans land during the 2ndWW.  We will also be taking part in the KS1 production so keep your eyes peeled for more information and dates for this big event!  Please find the medium term plan and the new 50 point challenge below.


Kind regards

Hello and Welcome back to Spring term. 


I hope everyone had a fantastic break and feels ready to get back to school and get learning!  This term our topic is the Arctic and we have lots of exciting activities planned so that we can learn as much as we can in these six short weeks leading up to the half term holiday and the half way point of the year.  Please can I remind parents that reading at home is crucial in your children making progress in all areas of their learning and that we do have the reading challenge up and running in school to promote reading to your children.  They will receive a special sticker from Mrs Wells for reading 25 times, a wristband for reading 50 times and a certificate for reading 100 times so really try to read every night and ensure it is written in their reading records as this is the place we take the number of reads from.  


As was the case last half term, we have PE on Thursday and Friday afternoons and it is essential that all children have their kits in school for these sessions.  We are outside on Thursdays so please make sure your children have warm clothes that they can put on top of their t-shirts and shorts, we will continue to go out throughout the winter as long as it is dry.  On Fridays we are doing gymnastics in the hall so PE kit is also essential there for giving the required range of movement.


Looking forward to all of the learning we will be doing these next few weeks,


Kind Regards,


Miss Blackie
