Chestnut (Yr1)

29th November 2019


We have had a busy week this week in Chestnut Class.  In maths we have been using number stories to help us with addition and subtraction.  The children use the language of first, then and now to tell the story and decide if we are adding or taking away.  


In English we have been writing stories all about the Go Jetters adventures and problems in the Himalayas.  We made some story maps to help us remember what has happened and to plan our stories. 


In art we have looked at primary colours and how to make shades. We even got creative and named some of our shades.

This week in Chestnut Class we have been learning to use the inverse to solve problems in maths.  In English we have been continuing to follow the GoJetters on their travels.  They are currently in Canada and have asked for our help to find out about bears.  We have been looking at the features of non-chronological reports and looking for information in order to write our own reports on bears.  We already knew lots of information!  

Hello and a warm welcome to Chestnut Class!


We have had an excellent and exciting start to Year 1 with our Traditional Tales topic.  The children have been enthusiastic and extremely well behaved, learning lots already.


The PowerPoint below should answer all your new year questions, however please feel free to pop in with any queries you may have.


Don't forget to check back here regularly for updates!


We're looking forward to a successful year.
