Ginkgo class

Welcome to our Ginkgo Class page.

In Ginkgo Class we are Mrs Cruz (Mon-Wed) Miss Tarbuck (Wed –Fri) and Mrs Coyne.

We are learning

This term, we are learning all about ‘Living on an Island’ including researching about the plants and animals that live on two contrasting islands. 

We are looking forward to visiting a coastal area and noting the differences between coastal, rural and urban areas. 

In English, we are writing fantastic descriptive narratives all about dragons.

In Maths, we have been investigating 2D and 3D shapes alongside recapping problem-solving strategies.

At the beginning of each half term, you will have a sheet with English and Topic homework for that half term. Maths will be set weekly on Fridays.

Our Spelling test is on Friday. Please practise these with your child.

All homework to be handed in the following Thursday.

Reading books will be changed on Wednesdays. Please continue to read with your child daily and discuss the book as much as possible.


Please ensure your child always has a PE kit in school. Ginkgo class have a PE lesson on Tuesdays and Fridays. We will be doing Forest School in the summer term.

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.
