Welcome to Cherry Class. We are a class of 6 children and 3 adults. The children in our class are a mixture of year 5 and year 6 girls and boys and our adults are Annie, Heather and Huda. Annie does not work on Thursdays, so on this day Jo comes into Cherry class to teach.
This term we will be getting to know each other, settling into our new class and making new friends.
Some of the subjects we will be studying this term
English – Taught through Read, Write, Inc. (Individually targeted small group sessions that promote rapid progress in reading and writing.) Every child will read daily during these sessions so we will no longer be recording this in a separate reading diary. Each Thursday we will send home a copy of the book the children have been reading that week to share at home.
Math – This half term we will be focusing on developing our understanding and skills with place value, addition and subtraction.
Science – Biology: We will be learning about the different types of teeth we have and their functions. We will also plan and carry out investigations to discover the effect of sugary drinks on our teeth and the level of protection different toothpastes can provide.
Geography – Food Journeys. We will be finding out where our food comes from and how it is produced.
ICT – A lot of our lessons this term will focus on Online safety as well developing our understanding of what a computer is and how it works.
PE – Handball and general development of basic ball and teamwork skills.
Art – Printing. We will be learning how to make vegetable prints and using them to design and create repeating patterns on fabric.
Outdoor Learning – We will be making sure that where possible we hold at least one session a week outside. This will not always be the same curriculum area and will sometimes be linked to season specific activities.
We look forward to sharing our successes with you over the year.
