WELCOME TO CHESTNUT CLASS
Chestnut Class is a mixed Year 2 and 3 class. The teachers are Mrs Karen Paine and Mrs Julia Bray and the Teaching Assistant is Mrs Rosemary Redford. The children are encouraged to always aim to do their best and are grouped according to ability and their needs. The groups are flexible so that as they progress they can move groups.
This term P.E. is on Mondays and Fridays. Chestnut Class have Mrs Alison Barlow, a music specialist, teaching them music, including recorders, on a Friday. We are lucky to continue to have Mrs Chamberlain coming every Tuesday to teach the class Spanish.
Spellings patterns are taught in class and will be sent home weekly. Homework is set on a Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday to consolidate learning in class. It is usually maths homework on the Abacus website. There may be an additional literacy based activity. Additionally, we encourage children to read regularly at home and practice their times tables and number bonds. The class are tested on times tables on Thursday mornings. They should start with 2, 5 and 10 times tables and learn them thoroughly, including random order and division facts when they are secure.
Please continue to write comments in the Reading Diary – we do read them and we find your comments very helpful.
Here are some websites that your children could use to help with their times tables.
