Horse Chestnut class

Welcome to Horse Chestnut class. Our staff are:

Sally Crowley (class teacher)

Lisa Edwards Monday-Friday

Jess Sam Monday-Wednesday

Debby Allen Wednesday-Friday

We are learning

This term we are studying the Weather and the Seasons. We are checking the temperature daily, making instruments to measure aspects of our weather system and comparing changes in weather over time.

Our literacy topic is ‘Stories from Fantasy Worlds’. We have read some books by Julia Donaldson and done some art work and cookery around the themes and characters within those stories. We will also be looking at the Christmas Story and creating plenty of Christmas artefacts to share bring home in time for the big day.

Maths is focusing on Shape, Space, and Measure which gives us lots of opportunities to incorporate our Christmas creations in everyday maths lessons.

Home learning

All children should have a reading book which can be read as many times as you wish. They will be changed every Friday but should be returned on Thursday to be checked in.

Some children will have spellings sheets which should be practiced throughout the week ready for the Friday test.

Some pupils may receive additional personal homework from time to time.


PE kits and Forrest school clothing will remain in school until the last lesson before the end of term.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at

Thank you for your continued support.
