leaf Horse chestnutWelcome to Chestnut Tree Class! 

Welcome to Chestnut Tree Class. We are a fun, enthusiastic and hard-working Year 4 and 5 Class. The Teacher in Chestnut Tree Class is Miss Mileham and our fantastic Teaching Assistant is Mrs Deeble-Rogers. On a Friday afternoon we are taught French and RE by Mrs Will.

In our class we believe in perseverance, challenge, collaboration and effort. With these learning ingredients we have the recipe for success and can make lots of progress. We are one big team and all work together with our Teachers to make learning fun and exciting. We support each other and encourage hard work and reflection – we know it’s ok to make mistakes as this is how we learn.

We have 4 maths lessons a week, 5 Literacy lessons, 5 Guided Reading lessons, 1 afternoon of PE, 1 Science lesson, 1 RE Lesson and 2 Topic lessons where we learn about History, Geography, Art, D&T, Computing and Music.

Our topic for the first half of Autumn Term is ‘The Mysterious Mayans.’ We will be working towards answering the enquiry ‘Who were the Ancient Mayans and what did they achieve?’ We will be focusing on this question whilst improving our skills in History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology and Music.

We read every day in class as it’s so important – reading gives us more ideas for our story writing, it expands our imagination and introduces us to new character and worlds with every turn of a page.

We have homework tasks that are to be completed either every day or every week. We read at least 3 times a week at home. Our homework is given to us on a Monday and is to be returned on a Friday. Our homework will one Maths task and one English task.

We learn our spellings in class with our teachers. This allows us to focus on the spelling patterns we need to know and the spelling misconceptions we have in our writing.
