Chestnut Class

Welcome to Chestnut Class!

Teachers: Mrs Slater and Mrs Crossley-May 

Welcome back. This is what Chestnut class will be covering this half term.

Topic – Our topics this half term will be: World War II(History) and Sates of Matter/Properties and changes of materials (Science) See below for more details.

Homework – will be set on a Thursday and will need to be completed by the following Tuesday. There will be a piece of maths or English as well as spellings, times tables and reading (x15 mins daily.)

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 collected five signatures, they will receive a golden ticket which will be entered into a weekly draw where two pupils will have the chance to win 15 minutes of golden time.

PE will be hockey on a Tuesday and gymnastics or dance will be on a Friday.

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.

As the weather gets colder and wetter, please ensure your child has a coat, gloves, hat and scarf in school.

Thank you for your ongoing support,

Mrs Slater and Mrs Crossley-May
