In Spring term, Cherries had a lot of fun learning about ‘Our City London’ and its famous landmarks. Through fun and engaging activities children embarked on a journey around London and learned about some of the city’s well-known landmarks such as the Tower Bridge, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.

Children have had so much fun learning new sounds and working on their writing skills. They are developing a secure pencil grip and learning how to recogni​​​​​​​se and write their name.  

This term, children in Cherries class are super excited to explore all the different creatures living 'Under The Sea'! So far, we've been learning about the parts of a fish, different types and how to recognise them . We read the story' Tiddler' and learnt all about the octopus as well as number 8, our focus number. Children made their own octopuses and had so much fun counting all the way up to 8. Our other focus story, 'The Rainbow Fish' inspired children to come up with some amazing artwork, which we put together to built our rainbow fish display. We also talked about friendship and what makes a good friend. Was impressive how children took this on board so quickly and all made an effort to be better friends! 

In the Spring term, we are learning about 'People Who Help us', their importance and contribution to the community. This helps children to feel more comfortable in the big wide world and learn what to do in case of an emergency. In the first week we focused on firefighters; we learnt about their special uniform, what they do and how they can help us if needed.

In Autumn 2, we learnt about the different festivals and celebrations around the world. We explored Eid, Diwali and Christmas. This helped children to understand the commonalities of human values that are shared by all cultures and religions and develop positive attitudes about the differences between people. The children had lots of fun making their own Eid lanterns, Diwali Diyas and Christmas crafts, while learning interesting facts about each festival. 

Climate change week - During the first week of term and during the COP26 summit we talked about how we can help the environment and actions we can take to limit climate change. We also discussed recycling, made a poster and a penguin made of recycling materials. The children were very excited to find out that they can contribute by doing little things on everyday basis like using less paper, turning the tap off and separating the litter.    

Children in Cherries Class had so much fun exploring all the different activities in their playground. They used the building blocks to make a train track and build houses for the animals, practiced their balance skills and looked at many different books in the book corner.
