Welcome to Chestnut's class page!



I am really looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday for the first day back. I really hope you have all had a wonderful Summer holiday and you are excited to be coming back to school.








We HIGHLY recommend you visit 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.



This term we are going to be Time Travellers! We will be exploring different periods of times and the big events that happened. This will include Monarchs, lifestyle and how life has changed for children since the 1800's.



Spellings will start being sent home WB 16th September. They will consist of common exception words and words that follow a spelling pattern or particular spelling rule. They will be given on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Please support and encourage your children to practise reading and writing their spellings.


Maths -

Please encourage your child to complete 20 stars on their doodle maths each week. This is part of their homework. If you have any problems or queries regarding Doodle maths please talk to Mrs Dixon or Mrs Yockney.


Please visit the >Numicon< website for free downloadable resources, should you need them to support your child at home.
