Welcome to Cherry Class!
Teachers – Mrs Narramore and Mr Baxter
Cherry Class Curriculum
We hope that you had a wonderful summer! It has been lovely to have the children back in school and they are settling well into the new routines.
As you may know, the structure of the teaching staff in Cherry Class is as follows:
Monday, Tuesday am, Wednesday and Thursday – Mrs Narramore
Friday – Mr Baxter
Tuesday pm – Mrs Bestwick
The children will have a PE session with Mr Collins on a Monday afternoon and also a session with Mr Tyrrell on a Tuesday morning. They should wear PE kit to school on these days please.
Over the next couple of weeks, the children will begin to bring home reading books. They will have two – a Big Cat phonics book and a ‘book to love’. There will be a zoom reading meeting in the next couple of weeks to discuss the reading further and an opportunity for general questions about the reading and phonics in school. A date and link will be emailed to you in advance.
Homework will begin next week. We usually start any half term with a piece of topic homework for two weeks, followed by alternating English and Maths homework. This is in addition to a daily read.
As you may know, the cloakroom in Cherry Class is rather small! If it is possible for the children to just bring the essentials that would be appreciated. Could you please ensure that all belongings are named. They are provided with a piece of fruit per day and are welcome to bring another piece of fruit for the afternoon session.
If your child needs any medication, there is a form to complete on the school website.
If you have any further questions, please either ask on the gate, or leave a message with the office.
