This week has been another lively week in Chestnut! The pupils have been busy honing their acting and fine-tuning their singing skills, in readiness for their end-of-year performance and assembly.
On Tuesday, many of the pupils took part in the District Sports held at Deanes School. The children competed with enthusiasm and some returned with medals as a reward for their sporting endeavours.
The annual class swaps took place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. The Year 6 pupils were invited into Acorn Class to assist the new-intake children. The sports coach took the rest of the pupils out onto the field to play an exciting game of kick-rounders and frisbee-rounders.
The End-of-Year Disco took place on Thursday - an evening of mixed emotions but a, predominantly, fun time for our current Year 6 children!
The Chestnut children wrote about their memories of Year 6: reflecting on friendships, favourite activities and most memorable moments of their final year at Jotmans Hall.
This week, Jotmans Hall has been celebrating 50 years since the first moon landing with our 'Space Week'. On Wednesday, each class experienced our visiting Astrodome. Pupils were given a real-time tour of our fascinating solar system, with the visiting expert answering all of the children's inquisitive questions. In Chestnut Class, we looked into the links between our star signs and constellations. Pupils then created a piece of art work representing their own star sign.
On Thursday, Year 6 went to Deanes School and participated in the Batic Trust Young Citizens 2019. Whilst there, pupils were engaged in a variety of presentations giving important messages on personal safety and life skills.
Rehearsals have been full-steam ahead, for both our end-of-year performance and leavers' assembly. Perfomance tickets are going fast, so please ensure you are sending in your ticket requests as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
"At the start of this very exciting week in Chestnut, we continued with the rehearsals for our Year 6 production 'The X-Factory' and learnt some dramatic Tango dancing!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, the majority of us went along to our senior schools for our induction days. We met our form tutors, made new friends and sampled some interesting lessons.
We had a fun, sticky art lesson on Thursday - we began making our Day of the Dead masks, out of papier-mache, which we will be exhibiting at the summer Art Show.
It's been a fun week. Our time at Jotmans seems to be flying by..."

"This week in Chestnut Class, we have been doing many things. On Monday, some of us helped the KS1 children practise for their Sports Day. The next day, the House Captains supported the KS1 pupils during their Sports Day whilst the rest of us prepared props for our Year 6 production of "The X-Factory". We have been carrying on with our topic "Coco", researching Mexico and creating powerpoints to present to the rest of the class and, of course, rehearsing hard for our upcoming production - we hope to see you all there!"

The Year 6 children returned to school after an action-packed week at Stubbers...
"This week in Chestnut Class, we have been rehearsing for our exciting Year 6 performance. We also had a visit from the Police; a Community Police Officer came in to talk to us about internet safety and how to stay safe outside of school.
Our topic this term is based on the film 'Coco'. We've watched the film, which was really good, and then we wrote a film review of it. This week has been fun, we've enjoyed it a lot!"
