Welcome to Cherry and Damson's class page!

Mrs.Edwards, Miss Cernik, Mrs.Smith and Miss Pinder would like to welcome all year two, whether it's Damson or Cherry. We are certain we will have lots of fun during our topic of 'Adventurers'.

At the moment we are looking at a text called 'The Dragon Machine' by Helen Ward. Both year two classes are currently looking after a dragon's egg. We are excited for it to hatch!


This half term we will be looking at materials. We will be doing some investigations to find strong and weak materials and discover what daily objects are made from. 

Water Bottles:

Please can you make sure that your child has a named water bottle in school with them everyday. As we are a healthy school we ask that it is water and not juice that your children bring in their water bottles.

Class days


During P.E this term we will be practising athlectics and gymnastics. P.E Kits should include a white t- shirt, shorts and pumps. You may chose to include a P.E jumper, some jogging bottoms and trainers as the weather gets colder. Both Cherry and Damson class have P.E on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Handed out on Monday
Handed back in Friday

Homework is not compulsary but is a times table sheet to help your child learn their tables as well as their weekly spellings. These can be completed and practised however you wish. You may request extra work from your child's class teacher if you feel your child would benefit from more support at home.


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 have a 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.
