Welcome to Chestnut class, our Key Stage Two journey begins here!

Spring (1) – Welcome back, Chestnut team hope you have had a lovely time off over the holidays. We hope you are feeling rested and ready to learn! 


We will be focusing on the text ‘Jemmy Button’ by Alix Barzelay. We will focus on understanding the relationship between the characters, sentence structure and the sequence of events. We will continue to improve our writing with the use of inverted commas to punctuate speech and adding prepositions. We will be focusing on correct tense, spelling and apostrophes this half term. Look out for these features in your reading books.  


In Maths this half term we are completing our multiplication and division unit. At this stage in Year 3 children are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables so practising these at home is really helpful. Children have a TT Rockstars login in their reading diary to support this learning at home. After this we will begin our Measurement unit with the focus of money. 


In Science we will be learning about Animals Including Humans.Children will learn about nutrition, eating a varied diet and healthy choices. We will learn that animals have different dietary requirements. As well as understanding the role of muscles and skeletons.


Mr Hooper will be teaching us to play the Djembe African drum on Thursday afternoons.

PE + Art

Tuesday afternoons, kit must be named. Please send an old oversized t-shirt to protect uniform.
