In Chestnut class, our topic this term has a geography focus. Our study begins locally, in Slindon, but as the term progresses we will travel further afield, to Dorset and on down to the Jurassic coast and across the sea to explore the wider world beyond.
In Maths our current focus is securing the key skills needed to progress successfully within the Maths curriculum; the children will be revisiting and embedding their learning in these key areas.
In English we are studying poems inspired by the five senses to encourage us to become more aware of our wonderful surroundings and the rich qualities it offers us.
Our Science this half term is all about Electricity and we are looking forward to investigating how electric circuits work.
We are loving learning how to play netball with Mr Coyle and perfecting our skills.
Our favourite activity of the week remains our visit to the forest on a Friday afternoon where we learn, amongst other things, to show respect and to develop the personal qualities of cooperation and teamwork.
