Term 2
This term our topic is 'Celebrations'. We will be learning about lots of different celebrations including Fireworks Night, Remembrance Day, Diwali, Hannukkah and Christmas! We have lots of exciting activities lined up so keep your eye on our class page to see what we get up to. 

This week we have been learning all about Fireworks Night and The Gunpowder Plot. We have used musical instruments to recreate firework sounds and we have acted out the story of Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot. Take a look at our amazing firework pictures!

We have loved learning about and celebrating 'Diwali' this week. We dressed up in sarees and practiced some Diwali singing and dancing, we acted out the story of Rama and Sita and we even designed our own Henna tattoos.

As part of our Hanukkah celebrations this week, we had lots of fun making some potato latkes. We did a brilliant job chopping, grating and mixing all of the ingredients. We also really enjoyed eating them once they were cooked!

We have been doing an amazing job in our PE lessons! We are now all so confident in climbing and safely jumping off of equipment.

We had a lovely start to the school day this morning with a breakfast bagel and a book. We really enjoyed it!

Well done to everyone in Cherry Tree Class for such a fantastic term. We are very proud of you all. Enjoy the half term and see you in November. Love from Mrs Hanratty and Mrs Turner x

Look at our amazing Halloween costumes! Well done everyone for making such a fantastic effort.

All About Me!

Our topic this term is 'All About Me'. We will be focusing on settling into our new classroom and getting to know each other. We will be talking about ourselves, our likes and dislikes, families, pets and friendships. We will be thinking about the fact that we are all unique and we will be celebrating our differences. We will also learn about the importance of giving to others and charities. 

Look at our amazing self-portraits! We used mirrors to look at our facial features and thought very carefully about what colours and shapes to use.

Our first circle time! Everyone confidently told everyone their name and spoke about what they did during the summer holidays.

We loved exploring the play equipment on the top field and we are now very confident to play up there during our lunch times.

We have loved exploring our indoor and outdoor learning environments. Cherry Trees have been doing lots of amazing learning.

We have been really enjoying our PE lessons with Mr Borg. We have been experimenting with different ways of moving and playing lots of fun team games!

We were so excited to watch the new building arrive today. We loved watching the crane move and we were particularly excited to know that our time capsule is underneath it!

We were very excited about Mr Nourish's birthday today! We enjoyed making our own hats to wear for it.
