Our Class teacher is Mrs Alison Shepperson
Mrs Shepperson teaches the class on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with Mrs Holmes teaching the class Thursday afternoons and all day on Friday. We have our wonderful Mrs Moore supporting small groups and individual children during the mornings.
As Key Stage one children, Cherry class is expected to develop their learning behaviours and settle into a responsible learning pattern. We take the National Curriculum as the basis of our learning and tailor it to the different requirements of the children in the class. To find out more about what we are learning this term, you can download the topic web using the link on the right hand side of the page.
We have weekly spellings every Wednesday.
If there is a requirement for homework it will be given out on Fridays, the homework may vary from researching topics to extended pieces of work for example designing and producing a poster. Completed homework will be handed in weekly or by the date set by the class teacher.
Life in Cherry Class
Cherry Class are friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. We all are keen to share our ideas and show what we can do. We are working on settling quickly to our learning and to develop our independent learning styles. We love to show interesting objects to one another and we love reading aloud to the rest of the class.
PE days are Tuesdays (indoor) and Fridays (outdoor) so please ensure your child has suitable clothing especially for outdoor PE including trainers, long bottoms and jumpers/fleeces/hoodies and extra socks during the Autumn/Winter months. Please remember to label all clothing thank you.
Supporting your child
There are so many ways to support your child's success. Reading with your child is a great way to start. Ask them questions about what they are reading and what the story means. In maths we are going to work on our problem solving skills and our mental maths mastery along with the skills we need to succeed in maths.
Cambridge is full of museums, which are loaded with opportunities to practise research skills and develop curiosity. We are always interested in exciting places the children have been and opportunities they have had.
