Term Three

Week Six- 7th-11th February

It has been wonderful to return to school and to welcome back the majority of the class too. It has been pleasing to see how well everyone settled into the routine. 


In the final week of term, we have planned and written a non-chronological report about food chains. Our organisational skills are excellent and we researched and produced some beautiful writing. 

We also completed story writing based on plans made earlier in the term.


We found out what food chains are. We researched them and made these food chains. 


We have focused on multiplying and dividing by ten and one hundred. We have looked at different methods including the use of a place value slider. Using our knowledge, we have developed our reasoning skills.


This week, we really enjoyed our last session on the large apparatus. In particular, learning to use the springboard.

We have been learning about food chains. We acted out a food chain for the rest of the class to guess what organisms were in the food chain.

Week 5: Monday 31st- Friday 4th February 2022


This week has been a little different for Chestnut Class, but it has been lovely nevertheless! We have had between 8-11 pupils in class this week due to illness and isolation, with Miss Chapman and Mrs Rolls teaching the class.


Despite the changes, the children have showed remarkable resilience and have completed some outstanding learning! From tricky challenges in Maths to stunning writing, acting and poetry performances in English; the children have made the adults incredibly proud. 


We wish everyone at home a speedy recovery :)

Week Four- 24th-28th January

Science Week

Here, we carried out an experiment that modelled how the digestive system works. A slice of bread and half a banana was broken up and placed in a plastic bag which represented the stomach. We added orange juice to represent the acid and then water. To show the action of the stomach, we squished the bag. The resulting mixture was poured into a leg of some tights. This represented the intestine, which was then squeezed though to the large intestine. The excess water was wrung out and then a hole was made in the end of the tights. The final product was squeezed out, accompanied by much unscientific laughter!

Meet Our New Plant

Our collection of class plants is growing! We have discussed what plants need to live and grow; and also planned a cress experiment. 

Crystal Growing

We mixed salts in water and food colouring, then hung a piece of string in the mixture. We are keeping a class diary on what has happened so far.

Science Fair

Week Three-17th-21st January


In Maths, we have continued to work on calculation methods for addition and subtraction. We have considered selecting the most efficient method for the calculation involved. We have also investigated multiplying 3 digit numbers. Each week, we spend time practicing our tables.


This week we have completed writing the news article planned last week. We have also written a character description of a new teacher due to start at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. 


We have continued to develop our understanding of teeth by researching the structure of a tooth. We made a word map of all the vocabulary we could think of that relate to tooth decay. 

Kent Music school came to teach us about the different categories of instruments and demonstrate different ways of playing.

Week Two-10th-14th January




We learnt how to write instructions using an imperative verb. We also used time connectives and adverbs.


Our new topic began on human teeth and digestion. This week, we learnt about how tooth decay is caused. 

Gymnastics on Large Apparatus

Week One-5th-7th January



Today, we built hibernation nests for hedgehogs or dormice. We then tested the nests for their insulating properties, by placing warm water inside the nest, and measuring the temperature of the water at two minute intervals. By the end of the experiment, we all felt pretty cold and would have liked a nest of our own! Instead,  we warmed up inside with a story and then came out again to feed the bonfire and warm our hands. We have learnt that a fire needs three things to continue burning, fuel, oxygen and heat.
