In Chestnut Class we have fun, work hard and enjoy our learning! We work together to make sure that the children are happy, have a stimulating environment in which to work and make the best possible progress. We have a thematic approach to the curriculum with termly/half termly topics on a two year rolling programme to ensure that the children are interested and inspired to learn. We encourage them to be inquisitive, independent learners and to challenge themselves.


Our Chestnut Class Charter states that we all agree that we will…

• Be kind
• Listen carefully
• Try our best
• Be safe
• Share
• Not give up
• Cooperate
• Ask questions


Key Information

Project homework is sent out near the beginning of each half term. Will be have a sharing/celebration day towards the end of each half term and the children will receive a special certificate for their work.
We have Spelling books with weekly word lists for that half term. Please make sure that this in school every Friday. We celebrate progress with spellings with house points and ‘super speller’ stickers!
Year 2’s also have a challenge book, these are also handed in on Fridays. Children will collect stamps to work towards receiving a prize from our prize box.
As a school we expect children to read at home regularly. Reading diaries are checked weekly. We celebrate regular reading (when the children have read 10 times or more over two weeks) with house points and ‘brilliant bookworm’ stickers!
Our PE sessions are on Wednesdays. Please make sure that the children’s full PE kits remain in school. These will be sent home over the half terms for washing.
