Welcome to Cherry Tree Class!
INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
We are a class of hard working Year 2s who are taught by Mrs Moore and supported by Mrs Bellwood.
PE: We have P.E. on a Monday and Tuesday. Children need to have their kit in school on those days, including trainers for outside lessons.
READING: Reading books need to be brought to school each day in book bags. They will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children should be reading at home at least 3 times a week.
HOMEWORK: Spelling and Maths or English homework is given weekly. Homework is sent home on a Friday and must be handed in by the following Thursday. Homework is usually based on things we have been learning in school that week. Homework must be completed in pencil. Children are tested on their spellings in school on a Thursday.
All children have a Mathletics password and are encouraged to use this website to work on their Maths. They also have a login to use the spelling app accessed via the school website. Children are encouraged to use this, especially to work on their word walls 1 and 2, as these contain the most commonly used words.
OTHER USEFUL WEBSITES:
During our topic 'Down the bottom of the garden' the children enjoyed exploring the school grounds to find small animals. We explored the habitats that they were living in and investigated why different animals like different types of habitats.
We had great fun designing and making our own 'Shoebox Habitats'.
The children listened to some stories inspired by animals. We wrote descriptions of different settings and animal characters in the stories. We even wrote some of our own stories based on the books read, changing some characters and settings.
Autumn 2 news coming soon!
