Term 6

This term we are going back in time! The children have decided they would like to learn about castles, the people who live in them, knights and dragons! It is going to be very exciting topic to end a fantastic year and planning is already underway for a special 'castle' themed day to engage and bring to life the topic. 

Term 5

This term we venture into the exciting world of Science. The children are curious about life cycles, colours, how things go and robots. So, we are going to explore and learn about those aspects of science! We hope to end our term with a bang!

Term 4

An overwhelming favourite for the children this term was animals. So, our journey is going to take us around the world to explore different types of animals and their habitats. 

Term 3

Welcome back! 

Our new topic this term is "The Elements!". The topic has been weaved together to include many of the things that Chestnut Class wanted to learn about and promises to be very exciting!

Superhero Day!

Chestnut Class loved Superhero Day and looked amazing in their costumes! Our Superhero day is just part of our topic ‘Superheroes’. Today we got to practise our super counting, super building, super jumping, super drawing, super writing and super reading. The children were very interested in the invisibility pens and enjoyed having a go at writing secret messages. 

Chestnut Class are also loving our focused book this term ‘Supertato’ which has introduced some of the language linked to Superheroes. Our learning now moves onto real heroes before we get busy with all the Christmas activities!
