Special Mentions and CHAS
Every Friday we come together as a school to celebrate the children's hard work across our school; we do this by awarding one (on exception more than one), child per class Special Mention, and one child per class CHAS recognition.
During our celebration assembly we also celebrate weekly birthdays and award reading certificates, as per our in-school 'Reading Challenge'. Additionally, children have the opportunity to try their spellings and/or times tables to be able to progress to the next level in spellings and/or times tables in school.
The weekly Special Mention and CHAS for Cherry class is be recorded below.

This Half Term's CHAS:
Week 1 - CHAS went home with Phoebe for the weekend as Phoebe had settles in to year 2 so well. She has been listening so carefully! Keep up the great work.
Week 2 - Jack got to take CHAS home for the week for being so kind and helping Phoebe read out the names on the jacket potato stickers and made sure she knew he was just helping her read them and she could still hand them out. Fantastic team work Jack!
What we have been doing this half term
In Maths we have been looking at place value. We are now confident with identifying the place value of a 3 digit number and can represent these numbers using equipment such as base 10. We have been hard at work practising our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
In English we are creating our own version of the story From Head to Toe by Eric Carle by adapting it to our senses instead of animals to fit in with our Mission, all about our senses and the human body.
In Mission we have been looking at what our senses are and how we use them. We have been looking at the human body and how we develop from babies in to fully grown adults.
In Music we have looked at the story From Head to Toe by Eric Carle as a song and are in the process of learning it. Once we are confident with the lyrics we will be adding in actions and instruments.
In PE we have been practising our handball skills and are looking at developing these further to apply within mini games.
We have had a lovely outdoor learning session with Mrs Driver talking and learning all things outdoor.
The boys and girls all looked fantastic for Roald Dahl day and enjoyed Roald Dahl crafts in the afternoon. We made dream jars, paper plate fantastic Mr Fox's, Willy Wonka's lolly pops and The Twit's beards!
