Welcome to Cherry Class - Miss Selmi

Firstly, I hope you've all had a wonderful summer holiday, enjoying the sun (when it made an appearance).

This year will be very exciting! I can assure you that our learning will be extremely enjoyable and there will be plenty of enrichment opportunities to engage us in our learning.

Please check this page regularly to keep up with what's been happening in Cherry Class. If you need to speak to me regarding your child, please come and find me on the playground at home-time or contact the school office to arrange a meeting. Thank you - Miss Selmi

Our Learning

Term 6 - Land Ahoy!

I can't believe it is term 6! The final term of the year. This year has completely flown by and it has been a pleasure to watch the children mature and develop over the year.

So, the final term will include...


Term 5 - Turrets and Tiaras

Wow! What a way to end our topic! We had a very royal party, which we celebrated with our family. We also visited Leeds Castle; it was so much fun!

Have a look at the photographs below of our fun filled fantastic finish.

Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful Easter break :)

This term, our Topic will be 'Turrets and Tiaras.' Have a look below to find out more information about what your child will be learning this term.

On Tuesday 13th March, at 2:30, Miss Selmi will be holding a KS1 SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) workshop for parents. You are invited to attend to find out what is required for the 'expected' standard in reading, writing and mathematics, as well as exploring past SATs papers.

A letter about the workshop will be sent out during the first week back of Term 4.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask :)

Terms 3 and 4 - What a wonderful world!

We live in a wonderful world, full of awe and beauty. During terms 3 and 4, we will be exploring the world we live in through high quality texts. Below is a document highlighting what we will be learning up until Easter.

Term 2 - Great Fire of London

This term, we will be learning about the Great Fire of London. Have a look at the information below to find out about what will be covered this term. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask :)

Check the website regularly to see the wonderful learning taking place.

It was lovely to see so many parents at KS1's Parents' meeting. Here is the powerpoint for anyone that could not attend. For the non-negotiable document, please look under 'curriculum,' 'end of year expectations' on the website.


During Term 1 Pupil Conference meetings in October, I will discuss the SATs further and have past papers out to look at and discuss. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to find me on the playground at the end of the day. Thank you for your support.

Our first topic this academic year will be 'Our Local Area.'

During the topic, children will be taking a walk around our local area (Swanley) and will use this experience to produce various pieces of writing, as well as mapping out their route.
