Autumn Term 2019

In Chestnut Class we have, as always, had a busy start to the 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 are learning about place value in numbers up to ten million and some of us have been learning how to write numbers using Roman Numerals.

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.

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 thoroughly enjoyed an enrichment afternoon at OSVA where they used science to try and solve a crime!
