Our P4C question this week is…

Should you sacrifice everything for someone you love?

What are we up to in Cherry Class?

Welcome back to school. It is lovely to have all the children back after such a long break. It is lovely to see their smiling faces. We are starting the term with a Harry potter topic. We have drawn self portraits as a class in the style of Harry potter characters and we have written stories about wizard in a shed. In the next week we will continue learning about Harry potter and we will write our own biographies on Harry potter characters.



Our topic this year is the Romans we are going to examine how the Romans invaded Britain and what impact this had on Britain today. We are also going to learn about the Roman soldiers and the Boudicca Queen of the Celtics.This term we are reading Alex Rider Storm Breaker.

In science we have been looking at insects and we did a bug hunt using magnifying glasses. We are going to use this information to create bar chart and then classify the different insects. Here are some pictures.


In history, we have been learning about Romans we have been looking at ordering events chronologically. We went into the playground and made our own timeline, using cards. Here is a picture.
