Chestnut Class Update

Friday 12th July


This week we have been learning the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. We have started making story maps; writing speech bubbles; playing maths board games; and making troll cress heads. These activities will continue into next week.


We will be collecting all library books in next week.


On Tuesday we will be spending some time in the forest school. Children may wear non-school uniform so that they are in comfortable clothing that doesn’t matter if it gets dirty. We would like to ask that children do not wear open toe shoes/sandals and have their arms and legs covered please.


Next Thursday is going to be a non-school uniform day to raise money for the RSPCA. Children are invited to wear their own clothes to school and pay £1. Please bear in mind that we will still be walking to Splash and changing for swimming so children need to wear sensible footwear and clothes that they can change out of and back into independently.


Homework Challenges


Please read your school reading book for 5 minutes each day. Please find the last High Frequency Word sheet in your child’s book bag to add to your folder.

Speaking and Listening

Talk about your child’s practise day in Year 1. Can their remember their new class name? Can they remember their new teacher’s name? What did they enjoy in Year 1? What are they looking forward to?


Next week in Chestnut Class we will be:

  • Continuing our carousel activities
  • Doing some forest school activities
  • Swimming
  • Practising addition and subtraction using money
