Welcome to Chestnut's page!

I'm so happy to be welcoming your child back into school, and also into Chestnut Class. I fully appreciate, the end of the last academic year was a strange time for the children (and us all), but I hope they are now feeling 'ready and raring' to return to the classroom in order to explore, experiment and discover all that this academic year has to offer...  I am extremely excited to share the children's learning journey with them; to see how they blossom academically, socially and emotionally, over this school year.

Our page includes useful information about Chestnut Class, along with pictures and updates, so we can share with you the wonderful work and learning taking place in our classroom. However, if you have any queries or require additional information at any time, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

Kind regards,

Ms Clegg.

Bloom's Taxonomy - Useful Reading Questions 

As you are aware, we ask that you read with your child everyday (or as often as you are able), and that every read be recorded in their yellow Reading Diary. Please find attached a selection of varied questions to help support your questioning with your child, when they read to you at home.

Special Mention and CHAS 

This half term's Special Mentions - Autumn Term 1:

Week 1

I am delighted to award this week's Special Mention to ALL members of Chestnut Class. I'm so proud of how the children have returned to school, bringing with them their lovely manners and determined attitudes. Well done Chestnuts; keep it up!

Week 2

This week Special Mention has been given to Rosie; this is for your lovely Geography work, whereby not only did you name all the countries, you extended your work by then naming the European capital cities too. Super work Rosie - well done.

This half term's CHaS -Autumn Term 1:

Week 1

Chestnut's first CHaS of this academic year has been given to Rosie. Rosie helped to ensure a new member of the class felt comfortable on her first day, helping to 'show her around' and being a good friend. Well done Rosie - keep showing your CHaS qualities. 

Week 2

CHaS this week has been given to ALL members of Chestnut Class. This is not something we typically do; however, a member of the class was feeling very upset this week and when Mrs Leyssens asked for a volunteer to help make the classmate feel better, every member of the class instantly put their hand up, without hesitation, which was so lovely to see. Well done Chestnut - keep it up.

Look at our Learning (Autumn Term 1)

During our first week back in school, the children enjoyed dressing up for Roald Dahl's Day; here are some of the children, dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl characters. I'm sure you'll agree, all the children look super!
