Spring Term 2019

We have had an exciting start to the term in Chestnut class. On the 17th January we were so proud to participate in Chichester Sings Live 2019 under the fabulous direction of Emily Barden and loved seeing ourselves on television the following day! 
On a sunny Monday afternoon we were introduced to the Prince William Award by Rob Mayne from SkillForce and can't wait to start working with him to develop our skills and well-being next month.
Having studied WWI last term, we have now begun to learn about its impact on the outbreak of WWII and look forward to making comparisons between how the two World Wars were fought. We will be considering the question: 'Are we now free?'
In English we have begun reading Rose Blanche, the story of a young German girl in WWII, and studying the stunning illustrations for further meaning than that provided by the text alone.
In PE we are enjoying creating WWII inspired dances.
Our work in Maths currently centers around fractions and we are getting to grips with adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions.
We are working hard on our reading. We are all very keen to see our leaves on the tree displayed in the library which helps us celebrate our successes when completing quizzes on the books we have read.
In science we are studying forces and have enjoyed learning about Sir Isaac Newton and his discoveries.
We know it will be an adventure filled term and look forward to the exciting learning that awaits us!
