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 the Great Fire of London and we are excited to research all aspects of this time in history.

In English, we are reading Winter’s Child by Angela McAllistar; such a beautifully written and illustrated book, that will help us generate ideas for our writing.

In Maths we are solving word, money and shape problems.

In Science, we are investigating uses of everyday materials. We cannot wait to carry out experiments to understand how and why a certain material may or may not be suitable for particular use. 


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.

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.
