Welcome to Chestnut Class

Take a look at our topic web to find out more!
May 2019
We have had a busy few weeks back after Easter. We have been finding out about the armour that knights wore and learning about parts of a castle.   We have been looking at flowers and identifying some that grow in our school grounds.   In maths we have been learning about multiplication and grouping and looked at pictograms, block graphs and tally charts.   Our music sessions have started again with Mrs Adam and we are looking forward to practising our dances ready for the Duck Race in a few weeks time.    Our value of kindness is being encouraged throughout all our learning.
