Buddy Groups

On Wednesday afternoon the children did some Easter activities in the afternoon in their buddy groups. We all had an Easter egg hunt and then designed our own Easter eggs in our groups. The children worked really hard and had a lot of fun!                      

Fire of London

Having made houses out of paper and cardboard, we visited forest school to re-enact the Fire of London. The houses were stuffed with straw and lined up like a small street. One cardboard house was then set alight. The children were fascinated as the wind helped to spread the fire across the houses . The […]

Chestnut Sports Fayre

Yesterday, the children from Chestnut class took part in a Sports Fayre at the local sports centre.  They thoroughly enjoyed learning new sporting activities including, speedstacking, tri-golf, fun fit, crazy catch and dance.

Titanic Writing

The children have enjoyed learning about the Titanic as part of their topic lessons. They have tried hard to write an account of what it must have been like aboard the famous ship and the terrible events that followed. Using the knowledge they have gained has helped to really bring their stories to life!

Easter Work

In 2Chestnut, we have been making lots of fun things for Easter. We made Easter bunny cards and individual Easter bonnets, which we showed to the rest of the school in our Easter assembly. Happy Easter!

Playing with rhyming poems

This term, we have been looking at poems. The children have identified different rhyming words in a couplet poem (a two-lined poem) and then thought of their own alternative rhyming words.  Altering the couplet poem slightly, the children have then redrafted the poem using their own rhyming words with a lot of success!
