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
The children love TT Rockstars! We are continuing our daily 'Times Tables Rock Stars' sessions. Remember, you can use your login at home to work on your skills and challenge staff and children, if you haven't logged in at home yet, try and have a go! We have been really impressed with many children from our class using this at home - we love the fact that you are challenging members of staff too!
This half term we are concentrating on a variety of different aspects of science. We are continuing to learn how to work scientifically and find out about states of matter and looking at evolution. Later on in our term, we are finding out about dinosaurs as part of our whole school science week- we have some fantastic things planned for the children!
Some of our literacy work will be based around our new class book 'Skelling' by David Almond
Art will also be based around a winter theme, and then linked to our new book.
