Welcome to Chestnut!
'The Chestnut tree is a symbol of justice, honesty and a happy future. '
Chestnut Class is made up of some of our Reception and Year One children. During the children's year with us we hope to provide exciting and fun opportunities to add to their learning journey through school where they develop the confidence to tackle new challenges ready for their future.
In Chestnut class the adults are Mrs Louisa Webster and Mrs Sue Hart.
Please come back and check this page regularly to see Class Letters and photos of the work we have been doing in the classroom.
Week Beginning 15th October
This week, the fairy in Ash class brought us all a REAL T-Rex dinosaur! The children in Ash class came to tell us that the box that he was delivered in had been ripped open and all of the classroom had been left in a mess. The dinosaur must have been on the loose somewhere! We decided to go on a dinosaur hunt to see if we could find any clues as to his whereabouts. The children found lots of evidence on the field. We checked our CCTV and we spotted him! He seems a very friendly dinosaur - he liked to play hopscotch and had a run around in the playground before setting off through our school gates. We also wrote him a letter and made him some biscuits to eat in case he was hungry. When we came in on Thursday, the biscuits had all gone and all that was left were a few crumbs!
Have you seen our dinosaur?
Key Stage 1 Trip to the University of Worcester
On Wednesday, Key Stage 1 went to UoW to participate in Storytelling Week. They heard a story about a magic porridge pot, we visited the Infirmary Museum and learned about the history of the University building. We also finished the day with a wonderful performance from Garlic Theatre of the Billy Goats Gruff. The children had a fantastic time and were retelling the stories all the way home!
Week beginning 8th October 2018
This week we have continued our work to do with Julia Donaldson's book "Stick Man". We have been measuring sticks, using sticks to make letters of the alphabet as well as writing some letters to Stick Man himself. The children have thought about how Stick Man might have felt after finally arriving back home after a long and tiring journey around the country while he was lost.
Autumn Term - October
Chestnut Class have started a new topic this week called "Detectives"!
We began our topic by spending the day in Forest School with the rest of KS1. We were Nature Detectives and we loved making pictures inspired by Andy Goldsworthy and finding different leaves on the floor, admiring their beautiful autumn colours.
