Welcome to Cherry Tree Class.


I am so looking forward to this year already. Everyone has settled quickly and seems eager to learn.


Our PE days this term are Monday and Wednesday


Remember to come in your school PE kits on these days.

Any earrings need to be removed for PE and long hair tied up.


Keep your eyes on this page to see what we have been up to.


All the best,

As part of our work on Incarnation, children in Year 3-4 were given the opportunity to interview Jennie Fytche of the Lightspace organisation about her beliefs and the impact they have on her life. Jennie was very impressed by the standard of the questions and the amount of thought that had gone into them.

Memories of World Book Day

Working together

Investigating Shadows!

We planned our experiment over the last few weeks and today, we carried it out! 
It was very warm but we had lots of fun researching how to make shadows larger and smaller! Well done 3/4AY!

Discovering the Tudors!

Inspired by John Lyons - Wow Ethan!

We have written some exciting English today about Aladdin and Jasmine! Here is our class attempt before we did our own!

NSPCC Maths Day!

How should we lay out our classroom?

We used our new measuring skills and understanding of geometry and area to redesign our classroom. We discovered it’s actually quite hard work!

We played with nets, 3D shapes and even made some that are SO big we could sit in them!

Mosaic tiles! We played a tricky game that needed problem solving and thinking ahead!

Seriously super science day!

We practiced lots of research skills and thought about how best to check facts we read online and in books.

We also made our own bugbots, get ready to see our inventions saving lives in emergencies, exploring unknown territories and even helping people travelling around the world. To do this we thought about the strengths of different insects and how we could incorporate this into our designs!


We even investigated different types of plastic and whether or not we can recycle them! We had to use the float/sink test and the snap test.


Well done 3/4AY!

What a super day! 
We started off talking about geometric shapes and looking at different forms of art. We created our own mandalas and thought about how it links to maths.

The, we became hoteliers and create our own bug bed and breakfasts. We have hidden them around school, I wonder if you can work out where they are?
Finally, we made natural paintbrushes and had a go at using them to create a class artwork.

Map Reading in Geography!

We had a lot of fun learning about the myth of St George and the Dragon.

We listened carefully to the story and spent some mindfulness time connecting with others and retelling the story!

A mathematical water fight in the sun (or investigating capacity)!

Five ways to wellbeing!

We have been thinking about our mental well being and how to look after it. We have connected with Malik in Ethiopia in our PSHE lesson, considering what life must be like when you live 4 miles from clean water.

We have been active in PE and even in some of our maths lessons! We have even managed to catch some sunshine outside during our learning!

No boring maths here!

April Fools Day!

Bird Watching! 24th March 2021

We had lots of fun watching the birds outside our classroom this morning! We had to sit very still and be very quiet so the birds wouldn't be frightened away.

We have seen sparrows and wrens.

I wonder what other species of birds we can see on the school grounds over the next few weeks.

UK Parliament Week!

We have been considering what makes up our parliament and how it works to create and check new laws.

We have also thought about how we can be involved in shaping our country and have written some very persuasive letters to our MP Gareth Davies!

Well done 3/4AY! You all showed some great interest and were very passionate when it came to knocking down Belmont Tower!

Fabulous John Nieto Artwork!
