New Cherry Class 2020

Goodbye Cherry Class 2019-20. You have been such a wonderful class and I wish you every success next year. To my year 4's moving on - you are FAB-U-LOUS! It has been a pleasure to have taught you for two years. Good luck on your next adventure. To my year 3's coming back - I'll see you soon...we have unfinished business!


Love to you all, 


Mr Hogg xxx

Welcome to the final week of school work before the Summer break. Today, we are going to be looking back over the year and will be preparing to make a Lapbook which will contain your favourite moments from your year. We hope you will enjoy this activity.

Check out the leaver's video in our video resource centre - link below. 

Well done everyone - it looks great! Thank you Mr Hogg for doing the technical bits.

Hello Key Stage 2, next week is ART WEEK! 

Here is an outline of the daily activities expected next week and a list of resources that might be needed. We have tried to use resources that are easy to find and that you might already have in your home as much as possible.

There will be a detailed plan uploaded daily which will have instructions, links to web pages, templates etc.

Please visit BEECH CLASS page for the daily plans.

We look forward to seeing pics of your art work.

What amazing creations! And the winners are...Tallest Tower - Lilly. Highest Frying - Jessica! Great effort everyone!

Good morning everyone!

We hope you are looking forward to STEM week. We've worked hard picking investigations,experiments, design projects and math challenges we think you will really enjoy. We look forward to hearing from you - remember to send your photos and videos to your class' email address to be shared on the website. Have a good week!

Monday Snappy Science Investigation 1

Monday Snappy Science Investigation 2

Monday Main Activity - Technology/Engineering

To help you prepare for STEM week we are sharing the weekly overview with you. We will upload more detailed activity plans each day with clear instructions for the children to follow. Due to the nature of the activities the children may require a little more adult support than usual.

Please scroll down for the daily learning activities, we will keep the year 4 leaver instructions at the top for a short time. Thank you :)

CALLING ALL YEAR 4!!!! As we have been unable to perform a 'Leaver's Play' this year, we would like to create a 'Leaver's Video' for you all to have as a lovely memory of your year group. To do this we require 3 things from you.


~A video of you waving for 5 seconds to the left then turning and waving for 5 seconds to the right. (It won't matter if you start on the right first)

~A photo of you holding an A4 sized piece of paper or card (or larger) with a memory of your time at Linslade Lower school written on it. It must start with I remember when...(This can be decorated if you wish, or left plain, it's completely up to you)

~A video of you dancing to the Leaver's Song. You will need to dance from the beginning of the song to the end of the first set of hand claps ('This is our leaver's song, we're proud of what you've done)  Raise your arms up in the air on 'This is our leaver's song' Clap  your hands together above your head after 'song' Raise your hands again for 'We're proud of what you've done' then clap again after the word 'done'


You can wear your favourite clothes and any accessories you feel reflect your personality! We want you to have fun!

We have uploaded some examples for you to see.


Please send all three things to Mr Hogg via his Cherry class email address -  - The deadline will be Friday 19th June to allow enough editing time.


*If you are having trouble emailing the videos due to their size - send them to a friend or family member via Whatsapp, then share them to the Cherry email address from within the Whatsapp message - it seems to compress the videos and send them - I'm sure there are more technical ways to do it, but this seems to work.


Please email Mr Hogg should you have any concerns via the Cherry class email address.


We will mute the videos as we edit them so you don't need to worry about singing along or any background noises.

Good morning Year 3’s

The math’s focus this week is money, we are starting with a bit of revision of the lessons we covered before the school was closed.

It will help if you have some real coins to use and maybe even some notes! But if not then I have included some images of coins to print and cut out.

There is a Powerpoint, an outline of the lesson, and worksheets for different levels.

If you have any questions regarding this lesson then please contact me at

Forest School


Please make sure you child has the correct clothing in school on their Forest School dates in order to take part in the session.(She dates below)

  • Wellies

  • Waterproof trousers. 


KS2 Forest School Dates

Reading meeting for parents (whole school)

Here are some suggestions to help you learn your spellings...


1. Choose 5 words at time to focus on over the week using a 'Look, cover, write check' approach.


2. Choose 5 words at a time to try and write in different sentences across the week. This will really help the children understand the word and the contexts it can be used in.


3. Choose words, and challenge yourself to use them at different places within a sentence - start, middle and end. (Special toys are kept on the shelf. I love the special things you do for me. The letter is so special.


4. Choose words and look up their meaning in the dictionary.


5. Write the words in interesting ways - turning them into pictures. 


6. Write words and use dots and dashes to count the phonemes (sounds) E.g  W  eigh  t = 3 sounds


7. Dictation - Adult reads the word in a sentence, and the child records the sentence.


8. 'Speed spell' See how many times you can write the word in 30 seconds. Challenge an adult!


We hope this gives you some interesting alternatives to learning spellings. 

Link to simple online games to play and evaluate for our Computing lesson next week (24th September).

Welcome to Cherry Class page!


Our topic this term is Brilliant Bodies, to begin the topic can you find the answers to these questions?
