Hello and welcome to Cherry Tree Class!
Learning in Cherry Tree Class is both fun and stimulating, please have a look at some of the exciting activities happening in our class.
We have enjoyed learning all about Britain. We have learnt about the countries that make up the United Kingdom. We have learnt about some myths connected with these countries such as the myth about the Loch Ness monster and the Giant's Causeway. We have looked at famous London landmarks and painted them. We discussed traditional British foods such as bangers and mash and apple crumble. We looked at British values and talked about respecting differences.
Great British tea party,
We prepared a selection of traditional British foods for a class tea party. We made cucumber and jam sandwiches, rice krispie cakes and fairy cakes. We decorated the classroom with red, white and blue paper chains and made personal place mats. We all had a great time and some of us discovered that we liked cucumber sandwiches!

Australia Summer 1
We have had lots of exciting learning going on all about Australia. We have found out about Sydney and looked at famous buildings such as the Sydney Opera House. We have looked at examples of Aboriginal art and created our own animal pictures using dot patterns. We wrote a fact file about kangaroos and made a kangaroo out of a paper cup! We discussed the importance of Uluru to the Aboriginals and talked about whether we thought it was disrespectful for tourists to climb the rock.
For our homework project we found out some facts about didgeridoos and made our own didgeridoos! We used a variety of materials such as cardboard, wood, bamboo, plastic and clay. We played our instruments together and showed them to the rest of the school. They are now on display in the school hall so please take a look.
Year 2 Multi Sport Tournament.
We had a fantastic afternoon at Stokenchurch Primary School with other Year 2 children from local schools. We took part in a number of activities including shooting a basketball, obstacle course, throwing a shot putt, balance beams and dribbling a football. The children were beautifully behaved and we were very proud of them. Everyone got a certificate for taking part.
Learning Log Activities Summer 1 2019
In PSHE we have been talking about rights and responsibilities. We looked at the UN convention about the rights of children and thought about which adults help to protect our rights. We decided to do a litter pick around the school grounds and local area to show responsibility for our local environment. We were shocked by how much litter we found, particularly plastic items. We are planning to do litter picks more regularly in order to keep the area safe and pleasant for humans and animals.
Signs of Spring.
We have been thinking about signs of spring in science. As part of our outdoor learning we went outside and recorded all the signs of spring that we saw. In art we looked at some daffodils and drew and painted them. The display below includes all of our daffodils.
