Cherry Class

We have spent time today learning about Remembrance Day and thinking about all the brave people and animals who have fought in wars. We learnt why the poppy is special and how it is used to signify respect and remembrance.


Cherry Class have had some very cute visitors today.

We have had the opportunity to meet and stroke rabbits, guinea pigs, sugar gliders, chickens, a hedgehog, tortoise and a beautiful barn owl.

The children enjoyed this wonderful experience and were super excited to share all they had learnt.

Welcome to Cherry Class, we are a mixed class of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

Our Teachers are Mrs Knight and Miss Skelhon and our HLTA is Mrs Smith and our TA's are Mrs Valderas and Mrs Conneely.

We are very lucky to have two classrooms where we learn new skills, a covered outdoor area and an uncovered outdoor area meaning we can enjoy lots of outside learning come rain or shine!

Our ethos is to develop happy, confident and independent children who feel able to reach their potential within a safe and encouraging environment.


This page will be updated regularly, with photographs and information, so you can share our learning journey with us.





The children have had a lovely time picking juicy blackberries this week.

We are so lucky that our school is in the countryside surrounded by fields and nature.

Yummy yummy in our tummies!
