Cherry Tree Class
Welcome to Cherry class!
My name’s Miss Guest and I teach Year 3 and 4. I like to do lots of dress up days and practical activities to help you learn. In my spare time, I like to read books, watch films and go on long walks. I am quite crafty and enjoy making things. I love everything Disney!
Our first topic is Mexico. We are going to become Geographers and find out where Mexico is, what their climate is like and how it is different to the UK. As Historians we will learn about the Aztecs and what life was like for them. We’ll be using Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl as a focus for our Guided Reading and Literacy.
You can find more about what we will be doing in this topic on our Curriculum Map below.
PE is on Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure your child comes in their PE kit (weather appropriate), hair tied up and no jewellery on these days.
Every Friday your child will be sent home with some maths homework based on the learning we have done in class and it is expected to be returned the following Friday. Your child should also be practicing their times tables on Times Tables Rockstars. If your child is stuck or has been busy over the weekend, then please encourage them to ask me for help.
In addition to the maths homework, please see the topic homework grid below.
Spelling tests will take place each Monday and children will be issued with new spellings which will be taught throughout the week. Spelling books will be sent home on a Friday so that children can practice ready for the test on Monday.
Reading is an incredibly important part of a child’s education. It helps them to develop their language and writing skills not just in Literacy but across the curriculum. Pupils will be recognised and rewarded through our Champion Reader Scheme. The expectation for reading at home is 3 times a week. Please make sure you sign your child’s reading record every time you read with them.
Cherry will be visiting the school library every Thursday to pick a book to read. Once they have finished, they will be able to change it the following Thursday.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
