Welcome to Cherry Class - Year R

Mrs Perry and Mrs Alexander are the teachers in this busy but friendly Reception class. Mrs Perry teaches all day Monday and Tuesday and on a Friday morning and Mrs Alexander teaches all day on a Wednesday and Thursday. We meet together for our planning time on a Friday afternoons and Mrs Hill and Mrs Britton teach the class during this time. Mrs Hill and Mrs Calkin are our regular class LSA's.
Our current topic is 'Toys and Shopping' and this guides a lot of the learning we do. However, in Reception nothing is set in stone and we like to follow our children's interests, which can lead us into a lot of exciting learning opportunities. We have recently been learning about Superheroes, and have linked this to our toy topic, by getting the children to design and make a superhero doll and write an adventure story for him or her.
We like to make the most of our lovely setting here at St Martin's. We take regular Welly Walks into the farmyard and up the lane opposite school and find many things of interest to develop our understanding of the world there. We also use the Nature Area on a regular basis to enhance our learning.
Parents are encouraged and welcome to help us in our many class activities.
