Mrs Doyle and Mrs Denney have done an amazing job teaching and nurturing the children over the past few months. We thank them both for their hard work, going above and beyond their duties to ensure the progress of the children in Chestnut Class and always striving to keep parents informed via Dojo and through our weekly blog/round up that can be found on the school website.
Miss Heffer has been the backbone of the Chestnut Class operation and has given tremendous support to all. If as a parent you have concerns or questions we are available to speak.
In Literacy the children are enjoying their group inputs based on the Read, Write, Inc program and we have seen some lovely letter writing this week. In particular our 'Star of the Week' Evie-May impressed us all with her letter and her generous spirit. Children will continue their individual group work next week.
In Maths the children have been learning to find and recognise fractions of shapes and quantity. This week they have focussed on halves but next week we will be looking at quarters.
In Science the children have been identifying the parts of a plant. If you fancy a wild plant spotting weekend please check out this website:
In Geography, the children have been exploring the compass points North, East, South and West through games and activities.
A simple mistake was made with the spellings that seems to have caused confusion to some parents. In light of some of the communications we are now going to release spellings on a Monday to be tested on Friday.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Mrs Budiman, Mrs Doyle, Mrs Denney and Miss Heffer.
