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: Bright lights, big city
Our Learning Journey this term is called 'Bright lights, big city'.
Our theme for the Autumn Term begins with a Geography and Art focus on our wonderful capital city: London. We will be using our reading skills to research inquiry questions about the United Kingdom and our mapping skills to name, locate and identify characteristics of the capital cities in the UK. We will be using our science knowledge to investigate different materials, finding out about the properties of each. In English our key texts are The Queen’s hat and George and the Dragon. The children will be using this to explore and write informatively about the landmarks in London and will be writing to entertain by writing descriptive sentences and recreating their own version of the story. In maths this term the focus is on place value. The children will use resources to explore the values of different numbers and learn to compare 2 digit numbers using mathematical symbols. Art is all about the artist Ruth Allen who uses the themes of architecture and interiors to create her art work. We will be creating drawings of London landmarks and then creating prints using these.
