Horse Chestnut class
Welcome to Horse Chestnut Class.
Your teacher is Miss Yousif with the help of the teaching assistants Miss Murphy, Miss Sam and Miss Ali.
We are learning
In Maths we will have three different focuses; adding numbers to 20, identifying 2D and 3D shapes and correctly identifying numbers 0 – 10. Later in the term we will start to work around time, days of the week and months of the year.
In English we will be focusing on answering questions around a story. We will be reading stories about birds to help us become more aware of bird song and nature around us. We will continue to focus on re-reading books we are familiar with.
In Topic we will be investigating the different backgrounds and cultures we have in our classroom. We will build a map to display outside the classroom and begin to briefly discuss the religious beliefs we all have.
In Science we will be planting flowers to experience the time and nutrients it needs to grow. We will also be exploring the human body and building our own class mascot to help learn the names from different parts of the body.
We are following the Bug Club scheme which can be accessed by clicking on the hyperlink. You child’s log in detail can be found at the back of their reading books. We will not require the children to bring them in.
No homework will be sent home so please make sure you are reading with your children for 20 minutes each night.
Forest School is on Friday. Please ensure that your child is sent in with named suitable footwear. This would be wellies ideally, or old trainers if not. Please make sure that your child has plenty of layers and long sleeved clothing to keep them warm outside.
PE lessons are on Tuesdays. Your child will need to being in a coloured t-shirt related to their house, shorts, socks and either plimsoles or trainers. All PE clothing items must be named.
Please do not hesitate to contact us on our class email address if you have any concerns or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
However, if you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick up your child is the best time.
Thank you for your continued support.
