Welcome to the Chestnut Class Page!
New This Week!
I have seen some wonderful pieces of Victorian homework come in over the last few weeks! We will be sharing them as a class over this week and next!
Christmas Eve Kerfuffle!
The nativity has come together in a very magical way! The children have enjoyed learning the songs and their words to perform for this week.
The dress rehearsal went very smoothly last week and I can't wait for you to see how wonderful they all are!
Well done Chestnut and Maple!!!
This week we are looking at 2d and 3d shapes. We will be investigating ways to use them and their properties.
Over the last few weeks we have learning the story of The Enormous Turnip. We have acted it out and added our own characters into the story. Ask your child to tell you the story!
We will be looking at what kind of food the Victorians eat this week. Hopefully we will also be attempting to grow herbs in our classroom which the Victorians were know to use.
We HIGHLY recommend you visit www.phonicsplay.co.uk and try some of their free phonics games. The children have loved them and they have made a big impact.
Reading - At least five times a week and reading is always king, if you have not got enough time for homework please put reading as a priority. Enjoy listening, reading to and most importantly taking about what you like in the story with your child, a good conversation really helps them to understand what they have read.
Topic - NEW HOMEWORK -
We are starting our learning and investigations in the lives of the Victorians. We will be looking at school life and the kinds of toys children had to play with.
Each week there will be a group of spellings for the children to practice reading at home. Please encourage the children to use the planners to practise. You will find three boxes for them to use on the same page their spellings are stuck in each week.
All of the children have now been given their doodle maths log-ins. They need to complete 20 stars per week. This forms part of their homework.
Please visit the >Numicon< website for free downloadable resources, should you need them to support your child at home.
