Cherry (Year 2)

Welcome to Cherry Class! 
The children have had a wonderful start to Year 2. We have started our new topic of becoming 'little inventors' where we will be looking at and comparing new and old inventions. We will focus particularly on modes of transport and how they have changed throughout history. 
The children have settled in to our new way of learning through a mixture of whole class learning at tables as well as having more freedom of choice in our learning environment time. They have been busy running a car garage developing many areas such as communication, sharing and basic money skills. 
We are looking forward to delving deeper in to our topic. researching and learning all about Amelia Earhart, The Wright brothers while also developing our writing skills focusing on the text 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels'. Please see our curriculum newsletter for more information about what we are getting up to this term.

  • 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 4 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. There will always be a maths 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.
