Welcome to Cherry and Damson's class page!

Our main topic this term is Traditional Tails. We are looking at ficton and non-fiction texts such as Jack and The Bakedbean Stalk by Colin Stimpson and Little Red Readinghood by Lucy Rowland. We will be using these texts as structures to write our own tale.

This half term we will be looking at plants. The children will be growing their own plants and keeping a diary to record it's growing progress. We will also be visiting the local community garden to plant a variety of seeds, bulbs and will be maintaining the up keep of the grounds.

Sharing books with your child and listening to them read regularly at home is essential to the development of their reading skills. Ideally, the children should read for 10 minutes at home every day. We will continue to listen to the children as much as possible in class; all children participate in guided reading sessions. If there are any parents or grandparents who are able to spend some time listening to children read it would be very much appreciated - the children really enjoy reading to other people. We will be running a little incentive in class, where the children will be able to stamp a sheet of paper for every book they read at home. Once they hit each milestone, they will receive a certificate and a little prize - so watch this space! Also we ave our whole school reward of frequent reader books awarded in assemblies. 

Please remember your child will need to bring in their reading book and Reading Record to school each day. 


Spellings go out at the start of the week and are tested on a Friday.
