Chestnut Class are not participating in swimming this half term.  We have Outdoor Learning every Wednesday morning. For this we would appreciate it if you could send in warm, appropriate clothing and uniform (including socks) to change back into.

Our topic for the Spring Term has been “Super Space”. We have mad our own solar system for our class display board where we all made a planet each, we have also discussed and experimented with how gravity works.

In Topic we have been investigating different feelings we may experience during our time at home and in school, we have painted aliens for our feelings board and used a variety of different colours we mixed ourselves.

In maths we have been looking at counting and place value, with some children counting up in 2’s 5’s and 10’s

For PSHE we have been looking at keeping ourselves healthy.  We began with keeping clean including brushing our teeth and hand washing.  You can continue with supporting their learning of this at home.

Chestnut Class really enjoy the following apps:

Kahoot! - but you will have to help them with some of the quizzes as they can only access the ones that I have made when hosted live in class.

Clips - this is a video app where they can make a vlog about anything!

Purple Mash website - there are lots of activities which the class love - Mashcam, 2animate, 2type.  You can search for any subject and activities will come up for the children to do.   Work can also be set in the ‘2do’ section.  You will need to email me for the login details. 

Please see Twitter for other apps that the children are used to using in class.

Other activities that you can help your child with is cutting skills, fine motor and gross motor activities.   If you need any support with symbols and strips please email me and I can make these and email back to you. If you need any other support please email at

Thank you
