Welcome to Chestnut's page!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed a lovely summer break and the children are ‘ready and raring to go’ for this academic year. I’m very 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; 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.

Look at our Learning!

 Autumn Term 1 - A 'snapshot' of our learning. 

In Chestnut Class, the children enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl day, including dressing up as their favourite Roald Dahl character or wearing yellow. It was a wonderful way to end our Week 2.

As part of Roald Dahl day Ms Clegg read us a book called 'The Enormous Crocodile'; we enjoyed sitting in the reading corner and discussing the story.

Here are some pictures from the first outdoor learning session of the year, during the session we used paints and lots of different materials to create a seaside picture.

For Science this half term we are learning about 'Living things and their habitats'. This week we were grouping the living things into four different categories. We enjoyed cutting out different living things and sticking them onto the correct place on our sheet.
