Hello Chestnut Class families,
We hope this blog post finds you well. This week in Chestnut Class has been filled with exciting activities, learning, and of course, a sprinkle of outdoor exploration!
Our budding writers in Chestnut Class have embarked on a creative journey this week in Literacy with our fantastic trainee Teacher, Miss Merriott. Inspired by the charming book "I Want My Hat Back," the children have delved into the world of storytelling. Imaginations have run wild as they crafted their own tales, bringing characters to life and weaving magical narratives. Miss Merriott has been guiding them with enthusiasm, encouraging creativity and the joy of self-expression.
This week was Assessment Week for our little scholars. In Phonics, RWI (Read, Write, Inc.), and Maths, the children showcased their progress and understanding. We are proud each and every one of them for their determination and enthusiasm during this assessment period.
The festive spirit has well and truly landed in Chestnut Class as we continue our preparations for the upcoming Nativity play. Our classroom is alive with the sounds of little voices memorizing lines, learning new songs, and perfecting dance moves. The excitement is contagious, and we can't wait to see our Year 1 stars shine on the stage during this magical season.
Nature Exploration with Sara, Our Wildlife Ambassador:
This week, our wildlife ambassador, Sara, joined us for a special nature exploration session. The children were captivated as Sara introduced them to a variety of leaves, sharing fascinating facts about each one. The outdoor area transformed into a treasure hunt as the children eagerly scoured for these natural wonders, connecting with the beauty of the world around them. It's moments like these that remind us of the importance of nurturing a love for nature in our young learners.
As we bid farewell to this week we would also like to welcome Ezmae-Rose and her family to our school and class!
Stay tuned for more tales of discovery and learning from Chestnut Class!
Mrs Budiman, Miss Luxton and Miss Merriott
