Chestnut Class Update
Friday 24th January
This week we have continued our transport topic. We have been out for a walk around the school car park to complete a survey about the colours of cars in the car park and have used this information in a maths session learning about representing information in a block chart. We have also been learning about what transport was like in the past, looking at photos and video footage of old bicycles, cars, buses and planes.
In phonics we have learned the digraph sounds ‘ch’, ‘sh’, ‘th’, ‘ng’. Words that you can practise reading and writing are: chip, chin, such, much, rich, chop, shop, ship, fish, dish, posh, thin, thick, this, that, king, ring, song, long, sing.
We are attending the Budehaven book event on Monday 3rd February. Please see the separate letter with further details. We now have enough volunteers, thank you for your support.
Next week we will be learning about Chinese New Year and reading the story “Pirates Love Underpants” in preparation for the book event.
If you applied for a place for your child on the Bikeability Balance training, please find a letter in your child’s book bag.
