Our P4C question this week is…
Are older lives more important than younger lives?
What do we do in Cherry Class?
To find out what we do and what we are going to do in class each term, please click on the Class News button above.
PE will be on a Tuesday and a Friday afternoon. Please make sure the children have a full PE kit in school. PE kit must include
- a plain or school white or red t-shirt.
- plain dark shorts.
- trainers and pumps for all weather.
Homework will be given out on a Wednesdays and will need to be handed back in by Tuesdays at the latest so that it can be marked in time to be given out again on Wednesdays. If it is handed in early 3 weeks in a row, then the reward is a week off from homework. It is school policy to complete homework weekly (or every 2 weeks for an ‘extra hot’ challenge!).
Any homework can be sent in via email to be printed or presented.
This term we will be learning about the British Empire, and who the winners and losers of that time were around the world. It is a broad topic, with many moral questions to consider. It will be influencing our English work as we read Nutmeg Princess, a story from the Caribbean island of Grenada which is our Geography topic! We will be visiting a beautifully autumnal Harcourt Arboretum on the 23rd October as part of our Science curriculum, and will enjoy creating nature art as part of the day.
Our Reading text is the brilliant book Beetle Boy by M.G. Leonard. Our story at the end of the day is currently The Wind Singer by William Nicholls. These books are the first parts of trilogies, and we hope the children will go on to enjoy the next titles in both series! For Beetle Boy, we have copies of the next two books in our class library which children are welcome to borrow.
The school have new values, voted for in our house of Parliament before the summer holidays. The first value we will be looking at is kindness; there will be weekly discussions and lessons around kindness and how this value can influence everything we do.
All of Year Three and Four are using Class Dojo, an online way of recording the ‘thumbs up’ the children are awarded for showing the school values, which parents will be able to download and view for their own child.
