Cheeky Cherries 

A very warm welcome to Cheeky Cherries class page! There are seventeen children in our class; eleven reception children and six year ones. We love exploring the different areas in our indoor and outdoor classroom accessing a range of challenges and provision. Please see below a gallery of just some of the exciting things we do on a daily basis.  

Crashed Spaceship!

Remembrance Day

This morning we learnt all about Remembrance day and why we wear poppies. We then made our own poppies independently and thought about all the soldiers and their families. The children were all very proud of the poppies they had made. 


Super Science!

In our science lessons we mix up the year groups to fit in with the curriculum objectives. On a monday morning Cheeky Cherries are joined by the year two children from Cheerful Chickpeas. This half term we are focussing on 'working scientifically' through experiments, predictions and big questions, the children are thoroughly enjoying thinking of their own experiments, fair tests and seeing whether their predictions were correct. 

The pictures below show the children testing which product creates the most bubbles! The experiments and findings were very interesting! 

Cheeky Cherries visit Acorn's at Staveley

On Tuesday 25th September Cheeky Cherries travelled to Staveley to visit Acorn's Class. We had a great 'Messy Mixtures' morning, doing lots of experiments involving shaving foam, water and glitter, making our own potions linked to our literacy story 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and made playdough with different coloured food colourings and herbs. 

Wild Working Zone

We are lucky enough to have access to a newly built 'Wild Working Zone'. Cheeky Cherries have loved exploring what's in the outdoor classroom, smelling the herbs, taking learning outdoors and inspiring our artwork.
