This week in Chestnut Class we have been focusing on safety, both on the roads and on-line. The Year Fives conducted a road safety walk, which involved being off-site and coping with crossing the road safely. It was very exciting! The Year Sixes listened to an interesting talk on Cyber Safety. We learnt how to keep ourselves safe on-line.
In Literacy, we learnt how to correctly use parentheses in our writing aswell as designing a badge. In Maths, we did written method multiplication plus short-division.

It has been a busy week in Chestnut. We have been learning about place value, negative numbers and rounding in Maths - we have been rounding to tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands and millions! In Science, we have been studying the circulatory system and looking in detail at the heart and lungs. We have also completed a comprehension exercise about Roald Dahl's life in celebration of Roald Dahl Day today. We completed the week by joining in with the noisy, but great fun, marching band!
In our first week back in Chestnut Class, we have completed a SPAG test, a Maths test and a spelling test. We have also written a letter to our teachers (to tell them more about ourselves), started our WoW word display and produced a piece of art which represents us.
It has been a very good first three days back at Jotmans Hall. Most people enjoyed the "All About Me" art the most as we were able to express ourselves in our art work.

"This week in Chestnut Class, we have done many things. On Monday, we had our annual 'French Day'. We had French lessons from the Appleton School students - we learnt a lot of French words and phrases. In the afternoon, we put our French knowledge to the test by asking for items of food in French, along with Beech Class. We got to taste a variety of fruit, bread and cheese!
On Wednesday, we took part in the 'Flat Stan First Aid Course'. We carried out CPR on Flat Stan dummies and practised putting bandages on each other. We learnt the numbers we should call in an emergency and also how to cope with burns, bleeding and choking.
We have been very busy with the dress rehearsals for 'The X-Factory' performance. Everyone has worked extremely hard and we are looking forward to performing the show. Hopefully, we will all produce something amazing!"

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.
