Welcome to Chestnut Class!
Welcome Back Team Chestnut – January 2021!
We hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year! School is returning a little differently this term to begin with as your learning will be online for you to do at home. Each day we will set work for you on Google Classroom and you will be asked to upload / email what you have done so we can give you some feedback. If you have not set up Google Classroom yet please have a go using the instructions sent out last term and let us know if you have any problems. You can email any questions or work to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will get back to you.
This week in Chestnut Class, we have been thinking about people who help us in the community. Louis did a lovely picture of firefighters at work. After watching a Numberblocks version of the 3 little pigs, we have compared the story to the traditional tale and children used construction, sticks and straw to make houses. We have also been ordering numbers and learning new sounds in phonics. We have been talking about friendship as part of our ‘I wonder what friendship looks like’ theme. Lewis told us you can show friends you care by ‘giving them a really big smile’. We all agreed!
Hello Chestnut Class!
We are so excited to welcome our Year 1 children back to school on Monday and have been busy making sure the classroom looks amazing for you all.
Some things will look and feel just the same as the last time you were here and other things will be different, but we are a fantastic team and will help each other to learn new routines and remember new rules together.
Reception children, we’re sure you’re really excited about starting school and we know our Year 1 children will be great role models and help you to settle in. We look forward to seeing you on Friday 11th for your welcome afternoon before you join us the following week.
Here is how our classroom is looking. All that’s missing is you!
