Cherry Class

Welcome to Cherry Class, your teachers this year are Miss Killian, Mrs Pinniger and Mrs Foulsham. 

We are learning

This term, our class texts are Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Secret Friends by Elizabeth Laird and a range of poetry.  We have also been looking at a range of non-fiction texts including newspapers, biographies, and information texts.  Next term, we will looking at A Boy in a Girl's Bathroom by Louis Sachar as well as more poetry.

In topic, we have been researching what it was like in Tudor times as well as learning about the stories of Christianity.  Next term we will be moving on to the Anglo Saxons and Buddhism. 

In science we have looked at the human life cycle and Earth and space.  Next term we will be looking at forces and electricity.

We enjoyed our visit to the Tate Modern and are looking forward to watching Macbeth by The Young Shakespeare Company this December.


Spelling Test every Monday morning (all spellings are stuck in the homework diary and book).

Daily Reading is to be recorded in home work diaries.

The homework menu is on the inside cover of the children’s homework books. Books should be handed in on a Wednesday for marking.

Maths homework will be issued by Friday and should be returned by Wednesday.

Learning times tables is still an essential focus for this year and the children should practise these at home and at school. Hit the Button is an excellent app/website for this.  


P.E is every Monday and Wednesday.

Forest School will be in the Spring Term and Swimming for Y5 will start in the Summer Term on Monday afternoons.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at

If you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick your child up is the best time. 

Thank you for your continued support.
