FS2 - Emerald

Meet the Team!

Dear children and families,

The children have been amazing this week. We have had a full on week getting to know each other and make new friends. We have also enjoyed every minute of exploring our learning environment!

The children are all very tired after their full days but we are sure that they will be ready for another busy week on Monday.

Enjoying the wet weather


Previous Year

Thank you so much to the children and families for our wonderful gift of afternoon tea at Bowood. We had a fantastic time and were thoroughly spoilt.

We have had the most fantastic visit from bee keepers Elaine, Robert and Amanda! They kindly brought along a hive with lots and lots of bees in for us to look at.

We also had an opportunity to learn lots about bees and dress up in bee keeping clothes.

Please ask the children about the names of the bees, how they make the honey and why the queen bee has a red spot!

One of the children declared 'The bees are super cool and precious!' Which is how we all felt.smiley

Action Shots!


Captain Captain and her pirate crew have stolen one of the pages from our book! We are on the look out for some clues to find it. We have also made our own treasure maps and wanted posters to help us.


We read the story of 'Billy's Bucket' which we really  enjoyed! Miss Horton then put some water in her special yellow bucket and we all took a look inside to look at what was happening in there. We saw so many wonderful things including, mermaids, an octopus, a crab, a sea lion and a rainbow fish.

Do you have a magic bucket at home?


Parent Support

Every week we will update the website with activities you can do at home with your child, which will support the learning they have been doing at school.

Please send in photos of the children enjoying these activities to Emeraldclass@cherhill.wilts.sch.uk

Links to videos to help learning at home.

Below are links to some of the videos we use to help us with our Phonics and Maths.  Ask your child to show you what we do in school. These are really helpful to use at home.

The Coronation of King Charles III

The children have really enjoyed learning about and celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.

Please take a look at what we have been doing in our class for the Coronation.

We all wrote a message to King Charles and asked him a question. Here are some of the messages that the children wrote all by themselves.

'What's it like being king? Are you excited to have your crown?' Aria


'You are tall.' Sonny

'I love your crown. Is your crown heavy?' George D


'I love you.' Leo

'I love you so much. What do you do as king?' Amelia

Our Coronation Lunch

Feeding Titch the lamb

We are really pleased that the weather is warming up! We have loved being back outside in our Emerald outdoor area and garden. We love taking our learning outdoors!



Titch has been enjoying learning new things at school!


Pizza Perfection!

The children all made their own pizzas and had them for a yummy snack.
