Welcome to Chestnut
We are a very friendly class, with big smiles and great personalities!
We do lots of great activities inside and outside the classroom with our teacher Mrs Luxton and our amazing Teaching Assistants Mrs Robbins and Mrs Sutton. On a Thursday afternoon we are taught Science by Mrs Malpas.
We really enjoy our learning and love to deepen our learning through real life contexts!
Chestnut Superheroes are super hard workers. We have our very own Superhero Charter that we created to show how we are being exceptional superhero learners!
We are proud of each other!
We work together!
We share our ideas!
We celebrate each others achievements!
We take care of one another!
We listen to each other.
We always give 100% and we most definitely never give up!
We are really passionate about our learning and we always want to try our best.
If you would like to support in our class with one of our Topic lessons or help us with our reading and writing, please speak to Mrs Luxton, we would love if you could come and help us to reach our targets.
Please keep checking our class blog to see what we have been up to each week.
Here are our Topic Webs that tell you all the exciting things we are learning this term.
See you soon,
