We hope you are keeping safe and well and are making the most of the sunshine while it lasts!
You were sent home with your home learning packs so hopefully you have started to work through these. We are also posting a lot of fun ideas on our Facebook page for you.
Please make sure that you are taking the time to read as much as you can. We are waiting for resources to come through on Bug Club so you will all be able to access a range of books to read. As soon as we have allocated these, I will let you know.
Next week, we would like you to work on either a short piece of writing – or a poem – entitled, “When This Is All Over”. You can detail all of the things you are looking forward to doing when we are back to normal. It could be simple things such as visiting friends and family, or going to your favourite restaurant!
There are many free resources online for you to download and work on – however, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more work sent to you or if you have any questions about the work already set!
Take care Chestnut Class and we will be back for another update next week.

The children will be coming home tonight with a pack of resources and their reports. This will include work, book resources and ideas of tasks to keep the children occupied and stimulated during their time at home.
The pack also contains login details to various online platforms which can be accessed at home. As time goes on, if we have any further resources for you we will notify you on this page.
We hope to see the children back at school - safe and sound - soon! In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or queries at email@example.com and these will be forwarded onto us at the earliest opportunity.
Until then, take care and we will see you soon!

In Chestnut Class, like the rest of the School, we have been busy doing our Spelling Bee throughout the week. We were tested on 100 spellings! We await the results...
We continued our Science investigation looking at the growth of microorganisms on white bread under various conditions; the results were somewhat surprising!
In Literacy, we did several sentence-stacking exercises working on a balanced argument on whether or not school uniform should be banned. This is leading towards our Big Write which we will be writing up next week.
We looked at interpreting data in Maths this week, focusing on line graphs and pie charts.
The week ended with us celebrating Sports Relief on Friday 13th, dressing in sports/casual wear for the day and bringing in a contribution to the charity.

We have had a busy week in Chestnut Class celebrating our love of books and reading during World Book Week. This culminated in all the classes contributing to our Jotmans Hall School book entitled 'Tuesday'. The Year 6 children read out the story during assembly on Friday. It made very good listening! The children, and staff alike, wore their P.J.s on Thursday to mark World Book Day and undertook lots of fun, book-based activities.
In Maths, the children looked at identifying different types of triangles and working out the angles.
The class continued their investigation into microorganisms in Science by assessing how the growth of mould on slices of white bread varied under different conditions.
In Chestnut Class this week, we have been studying shape. We have been measuring and calculating angles.
We have been studying a wide range of grammar in Literacy.
We started a Science experiment on microorganisms whereby the children placed slices of fresh white bread in sealed bags. They will then study the growth of mould under various conditions.
The whole school has been busy bringing in a wide range of books in readiness for our Book Sale on Tuesday 3rd March. Each class will have a time-slot to purchase books during the afternoon and parents will be able to come in after school to view and buy a wide-range of books for all ages. All funds will be split between Havens Hospice and the revamping of the school library.
