Cherry (Year 2)

Welcome to Cherry Class! 
Knowledge Organisers! 
Term 2! What do we know about the world and how does it shape the way we live?

This term we are learning all about The Polar regions. We are going to start by looking at the features we can find there and how different they are from The UK! We are going to be researching Ernest Shackleton's great adventures to Antarctica and going on our own journeys in the classroom. As well as this we are going to be learning about the life cycle of an emperor penguin in detail by watching David Attenborough and acting. 


We also have our Christmas Show coming up at the end of term and are busy getting prepared for this. Please encourage your child to practice their lines at home so they are super confident on the day. 

Our Teachers...
  • Miss Blackwell

    Class teacher

    My name is Miss Blackwell and I work in Cherry class every day apart from Thursday afternoons when Mr Young takes over. I have worked in Year 2 for 3 years now and still love learning about our topics. When I am not at school I really enjoy taking my dogs Olive and Herbie out for walks and catching up with friends and family.

  • Miss Hart

    Teaching Assistant

    Hello I am Miss Hart. I am the TA in Cherry class and work Monday - Friday so will see you every day. I love spending time with my 2 daughters.

Homework is set on Friday and due in the following Wednesday. I will be sending homework books out on the first Friday back which will have the homework assignments in them. This book will also contain their mymaths and TTrockstars logins. There will always be a mymaths and spellings homework but some weeks there will be an additional homework depending on what we are learning that week.
Reading books will also be changed every Friday but children are able to swap their coloured book during the week when needed. Please can I encourage you to listen to your child read every day at home. Finding time to read and share stories at home is a powerful way to affect your child’s progress.
