Chestnut Class Update

Friday 17th May


This week we have continued our minibeast theme by reading and writing minibeast clues; learning about symmetry by looking at butterfly wings; watching a video and reading a book explaining the life cycle of a caterpillar; learning about halving and sharing using the hungry caterpillar and some food. In maths we have been learning how to double a number up to 10.


Next week in Chestnut Class, we will be:

  • Hunting for minibeasts in the forest school area (small groups each day – in normal uniform)
  • Practising subtraction using bees
  • Watching some videos and reading non-fiction books to learn about bees
  • Re-telling the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar


Homework Challenges


Please read with your child for 5 minutes each evening. Please practise writing words and sentences.


Get your child involved with the washing… ask them to pair up the socks and then count them in 2’s to see how many socks there are! We have introduced counting in 2’s this week, some children may benefit from looking at a number line to help them.

Speaking and listening

In preparation for ‘Plastic Free’ day next Friday, talk with your child about materials that can be recycled and how you recycle these at home.
