Another fantastic week in Chestnut class! This week we have been learning about 'one more' with numbers to 5 through number stories and practical hands on activities. We are so impressed with how the children have picked up this concept and are using the language of 'one more'. Have a look at our photos below!

Chestnut class are loving our new topic of 'Space'. They have been so engaged in our first story related to the topic 'Whatever Next' and used our story map to retell the story brilliantly. Our Space station role play has proved very popular and the children have already made journeys as far as the sun! On Monday a pair of 'Space boots' were delivered to class and investigations are underway to find out who they belong to. We can't wait for more exciting space related activities as the term unfolds.
Please don't forget to email us if you need any support with anything or just want to ask a question.

This week Chestnut class took part in a virtual Remembrance Day Service. They were all so sensible and sat quietly during the 2 minute silence. Some of the children enjoyed making poppies and playing with our army small world. See our lovely photos below!

Welcome back to term 2! We hope you all had a lovely break.
This term will see us blasting off into space as part of our topic about Robots and Space which the children chose at the end of last term.
This week they were fascinated about the different jobs robots do to help us and asked some great questions! More information about this terms learning can be found in our newsletter which is attached below.
The children also took part in a 'balance ability' session and they all really impressed us with their fantastic listening and great bike skills!
Well done Chestnut Class.
Please see below for our learner of the week and photos in class. We have also attached the reading letter and a Reading Power Point to help you support your child in their reading journey.

Letters handed out today in class are attached below as well.
Lastly, we would like to wish you a lovely, relaxing half-term break, so well deserved!

The children have loved our Power of Reading book this term 'So much' by Trish Cooke. We have been so impressed how keen they have been with all the activities from retelling the story, ordering the characters, writing invitations, and creating their own 'lift the flap' page for our own version of the story. Well done Chestnut class!

What a fantastic week in Chestnut class! We are so impressed how the children have coped going full time, although we suspect they may be a little tired this weekend! They are so positive in class and have really enjoyed our number time and phonics sessions.
We have attached the Reading letter to go with the books they have brought home today for your reference.
Also check out some photos below of the children enjoying learning and school life.
Have a great weekend everyone!
