Welcome to Cherry Class!

Here you will find all the news and events from the class! If you have any feedback, please let Mrs Nurden and Mrs Tong know.

Our topic for 2 weeks is going to be 'Aliens'. This will finish off our space topic. We will be making a menu for an alien tea as well as visiting Pizza Express in Maidstone to make a pizza. I wonder what ingredients we will use?

We will then spend the rest of Term 5 thinking about 'In the Garden'. We will be planting seeds and exploring insects and other living creatures in our Garden. We will also visit Vinters Valley Nature Reserve to hunt for mini beasts, go pond dipping and go on a scavenger hunt for natural treasures.

Our trip to Pizza Express

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!

Vinters Valley Nature Reserve

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!

We did lots of walking!
