Cherry Class Crime Scene

Today, Cherry Class children came back from playtime to find that our classroom had been wrecked! We observed the crime scene and, with the help of a tracking guide, worked out that a wolf had chased Little Red through the classroom.  The wolf had eaten the juicy red apples and delicious cheese scones as well as drunk all the ginger beer intended for Grandma. Luckily, the wolf disappeared into Forest School and was not seen again!

...and the recipe!

Curriculum Overview Information

As part of Community Week, Cherry Class have been working with our church community: the congregation of St. John's. We were asked to lead the Candlemas Service on Sunday 3rd February 2019.  We decided to decorate the church with candles so visited the church to make candle holders inspired by patterns in the building. Mrs Read and Mrs Young helped us. Later that week, Mrs Young came into school and we asked her all the questions we needed to find out what we needed to prepare. The final pictures show us at the service: performing a dramatised reading and leading the prayers as well as our handle holders on display.

The children in Cherry Class have been working hard with Mr. Chidgey learning how to choreograph and perform their own dances inspired by our work on volcanoes.

Have a look at the fact files we have written about famous volcanoes.
