Welcome to Chestnut Class


In Chestnut Class we love to have fun, work hard and enjoy our learning!

We work together to make sure that every child is happy, stimulated and makes the best possible progress. We have a thematic approach to the curriculum with 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 on a daily basis.


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

In chestnut class, year 1 have been working really hard in our phonic sessions. 

Please take a look at the list of sounds we have been focusing on,so far, this half term.









Please encourage your child to identify these sounds while they are reading. Being able to apply the phonics they have learnt is an extremely important part of their learning.
