Autumn Term 2019

In Chestnut Class we have, as always, had a busy term whilst having fun too!

Our topic this term is ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ and so far we have been finding the answers to some questions we had such as: How many people have died on Mount Everest?! We have enjoyed creating power point presentations about the facts we have discovered.

In Maths we have been learning about place value in numbers up to ten million. We have perfected our addition and subtraction skills and year 6 have also been tackling long and short multiplication and division.

Our current class text is King of the Cloud Forests by Michael Morpurgo; an adventure story set in the Himalayas. We are keen to find out what will happen to Ashley as he flees China to escape the Japanese invasion. Who are the strange creatures Ashley meets? 

Year 6 have been taking part in Bikeability and are learning how to ride a bike safely on the roads.

We have all really enjoyed Arts Week and produced some stunning artwork and poetry.

Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed two enrichment afternoons at OSVA where they used science to try and solve a crime, selected breakfast items in French and learnt the Spanish for various fruits and vegetables.
