Cherry Year 6

Welcome to Cherry Class!


I'm pleased to announce that this year the website space will be updated and maintained by children from Cherry Class. As well as demonstrating their technological skills they will aim to share with you all of the hard work and fantastic learning that occurs in Cherry Class. Occasionally there will be tasks/prompts or useful information added to our page to help with homework projects; so keep your eyes peeled!


Please can children bring in PE kit every day.


Homework should take about 30 minutes for each piece. It will be sent out home on a Thursday and expected back in the following Tuesday. This year we have introduced 'Homework Journals' to further prepare our children for life after Fir Tree. We ask that you try to look at and sign your child's journal at least once a week, in here will be things like homework tasks, reading carried out at home and dates to remember. 


We are encouraging the children to read as much as possible within school and at home so any extra help would very much appreciated, it could be as little as 10 minutes a day with a few questions about the book.



This year our Year 6 production is Matilda.We are so far enjoying all the rehearsals; this is our last production for us kids and Mr Gair at Fir Tree,we are making this one count.

On Monday the 5th of December we were lucky enough to visit Wallingford school and witness their brilliant production of hairspray.

Hairspray is a film based in the 1960s, this film is about people who were said to be different to each other, however, at the end we become treated equally. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this- even Mr Gair!
