A fabulous week in Cherry Class.

WOW! What a week we have had.

We had a fabulous World Book Day. Everyone dressed up as a character that reminded them of themselves. There were extraordinarily brilliant costumes. Have a look at the photos.

We had a couple of fabulous and fun science lessons learning about the properties of solids, liquids and gases and we even got to take balloons home with us!

Finally, our week ended with a visit from Mrs Barbour, who came to talk to us about the process of a book getting published. We were extremely privileged to be able to look at and evaluate a book that is still in the process of being published. We saw the script, the pictures and a manuscript of the initial book. 

We all loved the book and we can't wait for it to be ready to go on the shelves of book shops.

Thank you Mrs Barbour for allowing us to have that unique opportunity.

Mount Batten Centre Residential Trip 2020 - 11.02.20

This afternoon, Sam Waites, Activity Manager at Mount Batten Centre delivered a presentation on our forthcoming residential trip.  The presentation is attached below, including a couple of amendments as discussed in the meeting.  Children won't need any spending money and will not be allowed to bring any electronic devices, including phones, tablets, smart watches, hairdryers, alarm clocks etc.

If you have any questions about the trip, please see us in school.

Plastic Free Day.

We have ended the week with a fantastically creative day today. We learnt about how important it is to be careful with how we dispose of our plastic waste. 

In Cherry class, we wrote some fabulous poems to remind people about how precious our oceans are. We designed bright colourful posters with important messages and put our poems with them. 

You can see pictures of us working together and some examples of our work in the pictures below.

WOW! What an amazing start to 2020.

Cherry class have hit the ground running this week.

We began with a splendid WOW day to start our Rainforest topic. We learnt about Henri Rousseau and his love of art, specifically rainforest art. And we began our masterpieces. You can only see the start at the moment because they are still in progress. We will reveal all when they are complete. Until then, you will have to make do with the pictures we have of us hard at work.

Christmas Party - 19.12.20

The children thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas party today.  Thank you to all the kind donations of food, drink and plates.  A real feast was provided!

Today in maths, we rescued Pudsey and Blush by breaking a code to get them out of a locked room and we managed to get their bows and patch out of a case. We got an email from the B.I.G Chief of the BBC to say thank you.

We were able to do some exercise with Pudsey at the end of the day.

Happy Children in Need Day Cherry Class!

Dogs Trust Visit - 08.11.19

Today, we were visited by Stacey from the Dogs Trust and her dog Midnight! Stacey talked to us about how to stay safe around dogs and explained that this is for our benefit and their benefit!  It was a really fun, interactive session and we should now all be experts when it comes to being around and looking after dogs.

Here's Caelan and Jess C along with Harry H and Sophia from Cedar posing with Midnight!

VIKING DAY

Today, we have had the most fantastic Viking experience. We had two brilliant visitors, Mr Lewis who helped us to create some stunning pieces of wave art by mixing paint colours and using a variety of painting techniques. It was a lovely, relaxed, creative time. We also had our Viking visitor Ragnar, who told us tales of the Viking gods and their cosmos. Then, we were archaeologists and we dug to find Viking artefacts; we found combs, pottery, coins and jewellery. It was fascinating. Ragnar then taught us to read and write in Runes and we were able to translate some writing and scribe our names.

Finally, we played an ancient Viking games called Hnefertafl. It is a bit like chess, but much more fun!!

Please look at our amazing photos and see if you can find your Viking self.

Viking Day

Aspirations Day 2019 - 06.09.19

The children enjoyed a fantastic climax to a busy first week today as we welcomed some of our parents in to school to speak to the children about their career.  Over the course of the day, the children experienced workshops from Mrs Barnes who is a Naval Systems Programme Manager, Ms Blackler a 999 Call Handler, Mr Barker who runs a security company, Mrs Whiting who owns the Flower Cafe on the Barbican, Staff Sergeant Berry who spoke about his career in the army and Mr Hockley who is a paramedic!  We'd like to thank all the parents who gave their time - I know lots of our children were inspired by what they saw.

Viking WOW Day!

Today we have looked at boat designs. We have tested a variety of hull shapes and sizes. We tested how much cargo they could hold.

We found out that we are great boat designers! Our hulls could hold up to and in excess of 100 discs!

The Magical Literacy Tour

The Big Pedal

Red Nose Day

On Friday, we went to the Eden Project and learnt to become Rainforest Rangers. We learnt how to chop away the undergrowth so that we could explore.

We went into the rainforest biome and discovered many plants that we could use so that we could survive in the rainforest, if we became Rainforest Rangers. We found plants that could purify water, plants that we could eat and plants that could provide us with shelter.

It was the most interesting day.

On the way home, we sang Yellow Submarine!

Eden Project

Mrs Brinkworth came in to visit and show us some amazing scientific investigations. We had to make a lighthouse using spaghetti and marshmallows. We all came up with very different designs.

STEM

We created the most amazing World Book Day story about Cinderella. BUT, it was written from the ugly sister's point of view. Have a read!!

World Book Day

We have been working like professors in maths. We are showing all of our working out.

Maths

We have been working hard using our learning in science and D.T. to create a Christmas light photo using our knowledge of electrical circuits. Some of us had lights and some had motors.

We had such fun creating them and they all look amazing.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

New Rock Band in town!

WOW! We have a new rock band in town!

Congratulations to all the children who have been rocking away on TT Rockstars and have achieved Rock Star, Rock Legend and Rock Hero badges!

Keep it up Rockers!

We have had the most amazing World War 2 experience today. Our visitor, We have learnt so many interesting facts, for example, the government gave children a set of rules that they had to live by such as 'always smile.' Can you remember the others?

We had a go at code breaking, like Enigma. We were brilliant at this.

After lunch, we learnt about sending messages by semaphore and Morse code. We had to read and decipher a code, then dispatch our pilots with supplies to drop at a certain location - all given in code. Some times we were right and sometimes we dropped the wrong supplies in the wrong location. We could not retrieve the supplies that were dropped in the wrong location!

We also had the opportunity to handle some artefacts, some were from the 1940s and some were replicas.

What an amazing opportunity for everyone.

Well done for dressing up in World War 2 clothing. You all looked fantastic! 

A big thank you to Mr Smith who visited year 4 today to share artefacts belonging to his grandfather during WW2. 

World War 2 Day

Artists

"I feel like a real artist!"

We have been learning about nonsense poems. We have explored many poems and found out a lot about how to write them.

We discovered that they often start with 'There once was an old...'; they always have 5 lines; they are funny; lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme and lines 3 and 4 rhyme and they have a particular number of syllables on each line.

Watch this page...we might publish some of our work next week!

We are poets!

Well done to all the Cherry children who put themselves forward as candidates for School Parliament. They were very brave and stood at the front of the class to give a speech. They were all brilliant. 

After a very close vote, Cherry chose Isla and Eddie as this year's representatives. Congratulations!

 

School Parliament

Welcome to the Cherry class page. Here we will be sharing pictures and information so that you can see what we've been learning in school and share our adventures!
