Welcome to Chestnut Class!
Teachers: Mrs Crossley-May and Mrs Conlin
Welcome back. This is what Chestnut class will be covering this half term.
Topic – Our topic this half term will be: ‘the ancient civilisation of Benin.’ See below for more details. (click image to enlarge)
Homework – will be set on a Thursday and will need to be completed by the following Tuesday. There will be a piece of maths and literacy as well as spellings, tables and reading (a minimum of 15 mins daily.) Sometimes a topic project will be set – which may take a few weeks to complete.
Reading – please continue to hear your child read and then sign their reading log book. It makes such a difference to their reading in all curriculum areas if they are heard at home regularly. When your child has 5 adult signatures they will receive a golden ticket which gives them a chance to win a prize each week.
PE will be orienteering on a Tuesday and striking and fielding on a Thursday.
However, sometimes the timetable has to change suddenly, so it would be really helpful if your child could have their PE kit in school all week.
Water bottles – please make sure your child has a full, named and clean water bottle in school each day.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
Mrs Conlin and Mrs Crossley-May
