Message to Cheetah Class

Dear Cheetahs,


We hope you are all well and have enjoyed your Christmas holidays. We were disappointed to hear the news last night as we were looking forward to seeing your lovely faces and hearing all about your holidays. However, we know that this is a temporary situation to keep everyone safe at the moment. This doesn't mean that we'll stop hearing from you though, we are looking forward to seeing all your home learning and talking to you all again. Remember you are all amazing. Stay safe and we'll be in touch soon. 


Best wishes,

Miss Moore, Miss Cafferkey and Mrs B

Our thoughts on what fairy tales include

Tuesday afternoon's PSHE/Art activity

Igor, the bird who couldn't sing

We really enjoyed listening to Mr Powe's collective worship based on the book "Igor, the bird who couldn't sing."  This story is about a bird called Igorwho has been looking forward to spring, when he will sing for the first time in his life. But when the Dawn Chorus begins, the other birds laugh at the notes coming out of his beak. After many unsuccessful voice lessons, Igor decides never to sing again and sets off to find a place where there is no music. 


There were many strong messages in this story: the tale taught us the power of resilience, the importance of asking for help and the value of self-belief. We enjoyed crating wax resist paintings in the style of the author and illustrator Satoshi Kitamura.

Epiphany : We enjoyed lsitening to our collective worship from the Open the Book Team. We learnt how to use compasses to draw an equilateral triangle. Using these triangles, we used origami techniques to create paper stars.



Living things and their habitats


We have been exploring classification keys in Science. We started with invertebrates that we found in our wildlife area and asked questions that could separate each of the groups. The more questions we asked, the more we could split the groups until eventually there was only one in each group, allowing us to identify each of the animals.



Living things and their habitats


We had a great start to our topic this term, learning about the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates and visiting our school's wildlife area. Here we looked at the different habitats we could find and what animals live there. 


We found lots of animals including snails, bees, spiders, woodlice and worms.



James and the Giant Peach


This term our class text is James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. We can't wait to join James Henry Trotter on his wild cross-world adventures as he sets sail with his new friends bound for New York City, after escaping his cruel Aunts.


We will be learning key skills that will help us to write detailed character descriptions and building our knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. 



Welcome back Cheetahs!

It was really lovely to see you all today and we hope you had a good day. We are looking forward to seeing you all again tomorrow!  Thank you for all your amazing listening, sparky ideas and interesting contributions. 

Fabulous Friday!


What a great day we had today. Thank you to all the children for working so hard.

Mrs B and I are very proud of you all. You have settled back into school life and have shown many excellent examples of friendship, kindness, concentration and resilience. Keep it up!  

Everybody loves celebrating their birthday and Cheetahs class are all ready to help the celebrations get into full swing. We have finished making our class birthday cards. Don't they look amazing? 
We chose a different way to draw cheetahs today. Some of us labelled our cheetahs with the information we have found out about this amazing animal.
