Cherry Orchard has been very fortunate to have these visitors on Wednesday 13th January 2016. The scientists, as well as thrilling Key Stage 1, wowed Key Stage 2 with intriguing and fascinating shows. Pupils gazed and gaped at digestion (though many were squirming or squeamish) in “It Takes Guts”. Then, during the second show – “Feel the Force” – they were mesmerised and hypnotised by forces.
The Winter Fairmarked the end of an exciting and successful Autumn Term. With toys and books selling out in the first 45 minutes, cakes flying off the tables, hot dogs and hot drinks being consumed by many and candy floss keeping everyone happy. The ducks were hooked, the bear was named, crafts were underway and the face painting stall was inundated with customers! Fantastic hampers were raffled off to the lucky winners, and to top it all, Tiny Tim the pony made a special visit with our friends from the RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association). Thank you to everyone who donated items and to those who donated their time. Special thanks to the parents who attended the planning meetings and to Ms Hassan for organising. An incredible £610 was made and will be used to buy new playground equipment in the new year.
Nursery and Reception put on an amazing performance with hearty singing and rhythmic dancing. Thanks to all of the adults who work in the Foundation stage for your hard work, especially Miss Rutherford who wowed the audience with her piano playing!
Years 1 and 2 rocked and rolled when performing their show stopper 'Rock Around the Flock'! Complete with slick dance moves, groovy singing and mean Kazoo playing, they made everyone beam with pride. Well done to eveyone who made it such a success!
The choir kicked off the festive period with a concert at St Luke's church - they made us very proud!

Reception had an amazing time exploring Stratford’s Discover! We were learning all about space in school and had fun acting out all our space adventure stories in their brilliant space themed activity centre! Our adults came too to enjoy the story creating workshop, where we acted out all the roles! We delved into the outdoor playground and discovered a huge dinosaur, a pirate ship and lots of different things to investigate!
As scientists we have explored the world all around us! We have found where snails, slugs and many more insects live in our playground. We wanted to find out if we could grow our own tomatoes. We used tomatoes, our healthy snack, cut them up and discovered they were full of seeds! We had the idea that we could plant some of them and the others we could feed to our snails!
We love writing stories and acting them out. Everyone has a chance to write their own amazing story in the special class book! We then become actors and the audience, sharing the story with everyone. With our incredible imaginations we have become massive castles, giant dinosaurs, miniature ponies and even balloons!
We had fun learning about lots of insects! Our favourite was the spider. What would you say if you saw a spider? What if they invited all their friends to say hello? Our classroom was full of spiders!
Our class theme is all about Roman life. On this day we gathered together as people of Rome to recieve our orders from our leader, Julius Caesar!
Year 3 having some very 'dramatic' English session. They re tell the story over and over to get familiar with it and then plan it all out on a story mountain. It really helps produce some fantastic writing! Well done Year 3
As part of our London theme, Year 3 went to explore how London's transport network has changed throughout history!
As part of our learning about Japan in World Food Kitchen, we made sushi. It was a bit fiddly to roll up the nori sheets, but we managed in the end, and it tasted delicious!
To follow up our learning in the Spring term about the Great Fire of London, Year 2 went to the Museum of London to watch an expert storyteller bring the Fire to life. But we didn’t just get to sit back and relax – we had to act it out too!
We visited the Monument in London, which was built to commemorate the Great Fire of London. After climbing 311 steps, we finally made it to the top and were able to admire the view! We also went to St Paul’s Cathedral and did some sketching in the gardens.
