Welcome to Chestnut’s class page!
What a busy first term we have had, the weeks have been flying by! It seems like we have now fully settled in after having a full first half term and we have been super busy with our learning.
In English, we have written our own change stories with the help of Mr Big and are now having a go at writing our own persuasive advert to join Mr Big’s Band.
In Maths, we have been consolidating our understanding of place value within 2 digit and 3 digit numbers and using what we have learnt to help us add and subtract numbers. It is so important to know number bonds for all numbers up to 20 as it makes it easier to solve calculations. Keep working on learning those number facts!
In Science, we learnt about seed dispersal and what plants need to grow. We enjoyed going on a seed walk looking for seeds on our school grounds and investigating how they were dispersed and where they had come from.
We had fun learning about the Mediterranean in Geography. We zoomed in on Italy learning about its capoluogos and looking at Bologna’s similarities and differences compared to Windsor.
We have created some beautiful pumpkin skin Art where we really got to express our creativity and had so much fun in the process!
We are looking forward to what the rest of the year will bring! Keep being superstars Chestnut Class!

Chestnut Class have had a busy term working hard in all subjects!
In English, we have learnt our model text Orpheus and Eurydice, a Greek myth quest story, and have written our own quest stories. We have also been producing fact files about our own mythical creatures!
In Science, we have been learning all about animals including humans learning about how skeletons provide support and protection for the body, how muscles work, different types of skeletons and the types of nutrition animals, including humans, need.
In Geography, our topic has been ‘Extreme Earth’ and we have enjoyed learning about the earth, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes and volcanoes.
Our PE this term has linked to our Geography unit as our dance unit has been inspired by the weather. We have been using the different elements of the weather to incorporate into our routines taking inspiration from the wind and rain.
I have been very proud of the hard work that Chestnut has produced this term and look forward to what next term will bring!
