Cherry Class (Reception and Year 1)

Welcome to Cherry Class where we love to learn through play and exploration. We learn inside and outside about all sorts of fascinating things from bugs to number bonds. We all try our best and understand that sometimes when we are learning it can be a bit tricky but we must persevere. Most of all we like to have fun together!


The adults that help in Cherry Class are:

Mrs Bates- Class Teacher.       

Mrs Cooper- LSA

Miss Wheaden- LSA
