Summer 2- Paws, Claws and Whiskers

We hope you all had a lovely holiday and are now ready for our last term together!


Our topic this term is paws, claws and whiskers. We will be looking at the story of Handa's Surprise in English making predictions, writing letters and creating a non chronological report about Africa. 


In maths we will be recapping areas that we have learnt this year to ensure you are all secure on identifying one more and one less, solving multiplication and division problems and problems involving money, Towards the end of the term we will be securing numbers to and beyond 100 and ensuring we know our number bonds to 20. 


Our science lessons will focus on animals and their young, basic needs of an animal as well as looking at camouflage and habitats and finally food chains. In topic we will be looking at the artist Henri Rousseau and trying to recreate some of his work.


Finally we have an exciting trip planned, look out for the letter home.

Take a look at our homework projects.

We had a chance to look at and feel of a real snake skin. It was very delicate!

It was nice to see some parents join us for parents morning, we were decorating paper cups which will be put together to make a class snake.

Well done to the children who earned a snap band certificate and house points from healthy eating week.

We had a lovely day taking part in sports day.

We have been reinforcing our number bonds to 10 knowledge through different practical activities.

Performance poetry 


Last week Chestnut class performed their poems to the rest of the class. They all spoke beautifully and even added actions to make the poem come to life. We were proud of them for all getting up even if they were a bit nervous.

Have a look at a couple of the videos below.
