Cherry - Foundation Class
Welcome to Cherry Class
These words will be echoing in Cherry Class this term - as the children will learn what these words mean and how to use them to ask questions. We will be exploring the different jobs of a Doctor, headteacher, chef, librarian and others as our topic this term is "People Who Help Us?". The children will have the opportunity to meet some different professionals either in Cherry Class or visiting them in their own working environments.
Medical training for Cherry Class we learnt how to look at a chest xray, use syringes and listen using a stethoscope.
The headteacher was made very welcome as the children offered her a cup of tea and biscuit before asking some very good questions. These included "Why did you become a headteaher?" "What do you do on your computer in the office?" and "What is your favourite dinosaur?".
We were visited by the Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk and helped him write his shopping list.
The children have learned about Harvest through the stories "Little Red Hen" and "Rosie's Walk".
"Five Rosy Apples on an Apple Tree" is a song created by the children and performed at the School Harvest Festival.
To help us learn about our value this term of "Friendship" we shared the "The Very Helpful Friend" which then resulted in an invasion of hedgehogs in the classroom (created by the children). The children then worked together to create a "Hedgehog Hideaway" in the corner of the classroom.
