Miss Morley and Miss Newbury
Hello and welcome to Chestnut’s class page!
We have had a fabulous term so far. Everyone in Chestnut class has worked really hard and we have been learning about lots of things. Read on to find out more.
We started off this term with a spooky Halloween disco! We danced the afternoon away to our favourite songs and played lots of fun games. Look at us in the pictures below trying to be scary.
In Maths, we have been learning to recall our number bonds to 10 and 20 quickly. Here you can see us playing an exciting team game where we had to answer as many of the questions in the hoops as quickly as possible. We have also learnt about representing numbers in different ways. Below you can see some of two of us playing Tarsia which is like a puzzle.
During English, we have been focusing on our reading skills to help us with our writing. Here we are using magnifying glasses to help us read texts and to help us identify adjectives and expanded noun phrases.
Our topic this term was Up, Up and Away! Look at the compasses we made to help us direct our friends around an obstacle course.
To enhance our learning about space, we went on an adventure to The National Space Centre! We learnt so much about astronauts and space shuttles. The Planetarium was the best part. It was like a cinema but the screen was all around you. It made our eyes go funny.
When we came back from the Space Centre, we wrote a recount about our experience.
We have had so much fun this term and can’t wait until next term!
