This coming week we will be exploring more about Time and how we can measure it. This is going to involve different active activities and so I would like to request that the children have their PE kits in school on Friday in addition to Wednesday and Thursday this week.
Spellings for this week have been added. However due to a shorter amount of time till testing the children have fewer words to work on this week.
Good snowy morning Chestnut class!
I have 3 snow challenges for you today!
1) Family snow angel- using as many people as you can, make the biggest possible snow angel. Please bring a picture on Monday to share if possible.
2) Practise your spellings- in the snow! Make the letters by shaping the snow or write them using your finger.
3) Instructions of how to be safe in the snow.- what do we need to do to keep ourselves and others safe in the snow.
Have fun everyone and keep safe!
Welcome to the Chestnut Class Page!
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 -
This term we are learning about the Great Fire of London. We will be looking at the how it happened and how different it may have been had it happened today.
Spellings will be continued from next week. The children will receive their new spellings on Thursday 17th January and will be tested on the following Thursday.
The spellings tests will continue to be on a Thursday morning for the remainder of this term.
Spellings will be available below each week.
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.
This week we have begun to look at how to build a strong structure. We are using our knowledge of 3D shapes to build houses out of art straws and newspaper. They will be tested for strength next week! Watch this space!
