Welcome to Chestnut class!

We are a Year 1 class and we love to learn!
Chestnut Class is full of unique individuals who like different things; Art, sports, reading, Music and many more. We are very lucky because Mr Young was our teacher in Reception and is now teaching us for a second year. Mrs Batt also supports our class in the mornings.

Here are some of the children’s comments about Chestnut:

We love to work as a team – Bettie
We will try our best to be independent and make good choices – Jacob

Mr Young and Team Chestnut

During RE week, our focus was sacred places. As a class we looked at different sacred places for different religions. We then discussed our sacred places and we even had the chance to make them. 

Cricket coaching

We have been very lucky as Chestnut class have had a cricket coach in this morning.  Although it was only for 30 minutes, we had lots of fun playing a variety of games, allowing us to practise our throwing and catching. 

Food Festival

Chestnut had lots of fun during the Food Festival week. They all designed, made and then evaluated their banana muffins. Whilst we enjoyed creating these, we loved eating them even more!

SS Great Britain
Despite the weather, we had a wonderful day exploring SS Great Britain and finding out about Brunel. We started our day with a workshop, finding out about Brunel’s designs and ideas. Then, we went on a tour of the ship, looking at where the poor and rich people would stay. We finished our day by looking around the museums.
