PE is on a Friday afternoon, but as we sometimes get the chance to go outside for PE, leave your kit in school all week!
We aim to be superstar readers every week! Please remember to read 3 times to yourself in school, 3 times at home to yourself and 3 times to an adult at home to be a 'Chestnut Class Reading Superstar'. There are prizes and treats for children who reach this target on a regular basis! We check reading targets each Friday for 3,3,3!
Times Tables Rock Stars
This term we have started daily 'Times Tables Rock Stars' sessions. Remember, you can use your login at home to work on your skills and challenge staff and children! We have been really impressed with children from our class using this at home - we love the fact that you are challenging members of staff too!
Our topic this Half Term is Eureka! We are investigating Greece - as historians, we are looking at Ancient Greece and what life was like compared to what Greece is like today. Linking to Science we are finding out all about Archimedes. Have you ever done any Greek dancing on holiday? Well, Chestnut Class are going to take part in some traditional Greek dancing! Also linked to our topic will be taste testing Greek food, including delicious feta cheese and spinach parcels. The school kitchen are even going to provide us with a Greek-themed day!
Some of our literacy work will be based around Greek mythology from our new class book called 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief'
Art will also be based around our Greek theme, so expect to see some paintings and etchings of Greek vases and traditional Greek towns around Chestnut Class!
Year 6 boosters start the week beginning Monday 11th November. Please remember to check which day you are attending and remember to start collecting your prize points!
