Springfield House Community Special School

PROUD of our Roots


Cherry Class

Welcome to Cherry Class. We are a class of 6 children and 3 adults. The children in our class are a mixture of year 4, 5 and 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. Our classrooms are found on the top floor of Main House.

 Our project this term is: Street Detectives.

This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields?

Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop? Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes. What can you see? What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address?

Find out how to write instructions, directions, adverts and learn rhymes all about our community from different times.

When the Lord Mayor writes and asks us to help make our street a better place, it’s time to get your thinking caps on and paintbrushes at the ready. Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras – it’s time to start investigating.
