Hello and welcome to Chestnut Class.
We are a Year 3/4 class and our teachers are
Mrs Hiscocks Tuesday - Friday. Mrs Bacon - Mondays
We are lucky to have four Teaching Assistants in our phase who are Mrs Andrews, Mrs Morris, Mrs Dequidt and Miss Allen
Our theme this term is:
'Where have all the dragons gone?'
Following Mrs Hiscocks' traumatic ordeal of her dragon sighting during the Easter holiday, Middle School are going to spend term 5 investigating where he came from!
Our topic is going to be geography based, as we explore a local study of Melksham, trying to decide the best environment for dragons to live in.
We will continue to work hard on our writing this term, beginning with our very own news paper reports about the dragon invasion on our school.
Already this term, we have learnt lots about the different types of dragons from around the world during our guided reading sessions. We have even learnt how to look after a baby dragon and how best to hatch a dragon egg!
PE- Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit every week.
They will also do PE on a Wednesday, therefore will need an indoor and an outdoor PE kit at all times!
Star Values Award
We are expecting you to read 5 times at week at home. Remember, reading doesn't just have to be sat down with a reading book, you could read a recipe, a newspaper, a magazine or I would love to hear what interesting facts you can find out about dragons!
Spellings will be set every Monday and will be tested the following Monday. This gives you exactly a week to learn your spellings at home :)
Remember to check the class website for ideas and activities linked to our class topic too :)
