Cherry term 2

Back to the 1990s!


Cherry Class have been learning about life in the 1990s, finding out about the popular toys, games, books, TV, music and fashion. What did we want to find out about most of all? SPICE FEVER! With the BBC planning to launch a talent show to find the next two Spice Girls (replacing Posh and Sporty) we made our own TV adverts to persuade people to audition for the show. Parents and Carers, do you ‘wannabe’ the next Spice Girl? The ‘Stop’ and watch our winning advert to find out more...

Autumn Days

Cherry Class had a challenge set by Miss Chapman- to use photography to capture the image of Autumn! First we discussed how to take a successful photograph and we made a list of top tips for using a digital camera. We went on an Autumn walk around the school and worked in small groups, using our cameras to take photographs of the environment and the changes we see in Autumn.


Cherry Class’ top tips for taking a successful photograph:

  • Choose portrait or landscape depending on the size of the image

  • Stay still to make sure the photograph is clear

  • Face the camera away from the sun

  • Make sure you line your camera up and look at the image on screen before taking the photo

  • Move forwards and backwards to make sure the image fits the screen

  • Use the zoom button to focus in and out


These are some of the fabulous images we captured...

We then used the photographs captured and the objects gathered from the walk to inspire some Autumn poetry. We explored lots of descriptive language to describe the sights and sounds of Autumn, including adverbs and similes and we used these to create our own wonderful Autumn problems.
