Summer Term

Please find links to our class timetable and planning below:

This term our projects are:


Sunshine and Sunflowers

This seasonal project provides opportunities for outdoor learning and teaches children how to care for the plants and animals in their local environment and how to stay safe in the sun.

Shadows and Reflections

This project teaches children about natural phenomena, including shadows, reflections and echoes. They explore how shadows are formed and how they can change.

Big Wide World

This project teaches children about the global community to which they belong and explores how living things, communities and climates differ around the world.


This project teaches children about water, including floating and sinking, freezing and melting, and why it is important for living things to stay hydrated.


PE lessons will be every Wednesday so please remember to  wear PE kit to school.

Please make sure all items of clothing are named as this makes returning them to the correct child much easier! This includes shoes, plimsoles and wellies, and any spare clothes you put inside their PE bag.

Talk Through Stories


Talk through stories grows children's spoken vocabulary drawing on the best of children's literature.

Each week we will be reading a different story and learning new vocabulary.

Blended Learning

In the event that your child has to remain at home, during periods of self-isolation, or in the event of a local or more widespread lockdown, we will provide blended learning for your child. This will normally be the activities posted on Class Dojo at the beginning of each week.
As we progress through the year it will be more appropriate to access lessons/activities from the Oak Academy, for Reception these are blocks of learning linked to a story or theme. In this case I will add you to the Cherry Class Blended learning Class Dojo page for the duration of your isolation period.
