Here you will find all the news and events from the class! If you have any questions or feedback, please let Mrs Nurden and Mrs Tong know.
We hope that you enjoyed the Half term break and that the children are rested, relaxed and ready to continue their learning journey in Cherry Class during the coming term.
Our topic during Term 6 is 'In the garden'. We will be learning about different minibeasts and creatures that live in different parts of the garden. We will be looking at and planting various vegetables and flowers. We will be visiting Vinters Valley to explore the wildlife that lives there and we are going to do some pond dipping too. We are also going on a trip to Tiny Tribe Outdoors which is a forest school. We will experience lots of outdoor learning there.
This term we are looking forward to sports day and we will be preparing for it by practising during our PE lessons. Term 6 is also the time when we get the opportunity to welcome the new intake and introduce them to Hollingbourne School.
We will certainly be making the most of our last term in Cherry Class!
We went on the train to Maidstone to visit Pizza Express. We learned about the ingredients, the dough and the sauce. We used our fingers to make an edge for the dough, we spread the sauce over the base and then we added the cheese. Our pizzas were then cooked in the oven.
We took our pizza home and had it for our tea. It was yummy!
Back at school we have learned lots on the theme of pizza: we have learned about half and quarter of a shape, half of a number, written stories about pizzas, made symmetrical pizzas and sold pizza in our Pizza Kitchen.
We have had lots of fun this term. We have enjoyed exploring different ways of travelling. We had a lovely trip to the National Maritime Museum. We had fun on World Book Day sharing books in the hall with everyone. We have enjoyed the pancake race and all the Hollingbourne Easter events.
We have also really enjoyed experimenting with the speed stacks for the Inter-school speed stack challenge. We made some amazing towers and buildings. We made a tower with 20 layers!
We hope you enjoy looking at some photos of our time during term 4.
At the Nationasl Maritime Museum we went on a 'Monster Hunt, had lunch with a lovely view, went and played in a lovely park and explored the 'Ahoy Gallery'.
We had a lovely time and could have stayed for longer as there was so much to explore!
We had a lovely day!
With all the excitement of Christmas over term 3 began. We have been thinking about Toys, enjoying learning about number with Numberblocks, learning lots of Phase 3 digraphs and learning to write all our letters correctly.
We visited Maidstone Museum for a toys workshop and called in at the library to find books featuring information or stories about toys. We also went up to the campfire to learn how to be safe around the campfire, light the fire, toast marshmallows and make popcorn.
We had great fun dancing and playing games at our Christmas Party. We went to the hall with the whole school for party food and a visit from Father Christmas.
We hope that everyone has a fantastic Christmas!
We worked really hard learning songs, dances and words to say. At last the time came to perform to our families and our friends. We were really nervous but we really enjoyed it. Mrs Nurden and Mrs Tong were very proud.
We were amazing!
Cherry Class held a Bring and Buy sale with band and dance performances to raise money for Children in Need. We brought in things from home that we didn't want anymore, we decorated biscuits to sell, we made Pudsey posters, we sung and danced and we bought the things that other people didn't want. We invited our families and even got some of them to join in with the Super Movers Pudsey dance. We had great fun while raising £78 for Children in Need.
Well done Cherry Class!
We had a lovely time welcoming our Mums to their Mothers Day Surprise. We hope that they enjoyed their cards, gifts, song, poem and the children's thoughts about their Mum.
On Tuesday 24th April we travelled by train to Pizza Express in Maidstone. We decorated a chef's hat, learned about the ingredients we would be using and learned how to make a pizza. We had great fun making our pizza which we got to take home for our tea. It was really yummy!
On Thursday 17th May we visited Vinters Valley Nature Reserve. We met Steve the warden who looks after the nature reserve. We enjoyed exploring the wildlife there. We went on a scavenger hunt, made up a song, sat quietly and listened to nature, went pond dipping, went on a slow worm and honey bee hunt, hunted for minibeasts, made up a story, saw some goslings, saw a giant redwood tree and some bamboo from china. What a busy day!
