Cherry & Maple Class
Welcome to Cherry and Maple Class
Cherry class is taught by Miss Owens. Mrs Joyce is the teaching assistant.
Maple class is taught by Miss Webber. Mrs Stephens is the teaching assistant.
Each half term, the classes will be set a homework project linked to their curriculum theme. In order to make maths fun and enjoyable, we will also send a maths fluency fact sheet home for the term, which gives the opportunity for children to spot mathematical patterns, make mathematical connections and speed up their calculation skills. They will also have a list of spellings for the term. All of the letters, which contain this information, are recorded on this page under Cherry and Maple Curriculum Information.
P.E. will be on a Friday. Please make sure your child comes to school in their full school PE Kit. Please ensure that long hair is tied back and that if your child cannot take out their own earrings that they are taken out before school. We will be trying to get outside as much as possible.
Your child has been given an independent reading book to read at home, which is suitable to their word recognition and comprehension skills. They should record their reading in their reading records.
This Term's Theme: Down Under
Our Learning Journey this term is called 'Down Under'
Our theme for the Spring Term begins with a focus on geography where the children will be learning all about Australia; its wildlife, climate, culture and features.
We will be using our science knowledge to investigate habitats and what animals including humans need to survive; this will help us in our English key texts: Australian animals and Wombat goes walkabout. In art we will be exploring the work of Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, an aboriginal artist. In maths, Cherry and Maples will be focusing on number; comparing, looking for patterns as well as learning efficient ways to add and subtract.
