Chestnut Class – Miss Hutchings



Welcome to Chestnut Class!

Teacher: Miss Hutchings

LSA: Mrs Clayden

We have had a great start to the new term in year six. The children have settled well into class and have proved themselves to be great role models for the younger pupils in school. Everyone is looking exceptionally smart with their ties and seem proud to be wearing them. They are keen to complete their prefect jobs too!

This term we will be learning a number of things, where possible, based around our Roman topic. We will be focussing on the questions: “What happened in Pompeii?” and “Were the Romans revolting or remarkable?” As well as this we will be working on key areas of English and Maths and foundation subjects too.

Our PE days are Monday afternoons and Thursday afternoons. Children will need indoor and outdoor kit each week – please ensure they have enough layers to keep warm as we will still be going outside as the weather changes! Please also remember that earrings must be removed for PE and cannot be taped.

Homework will be given out every Friday and should be handed in by the following Thursday. This will be used to support the learning in class from that week. If you have any questions about homework please do not hesitate to speak to me on the playground.

Reading Diaries will be checked weekly (including keeping a record of home reading for our Reading Olympics Challenge) and reading will be taught throughout the week.

Your child is able to bring a refillable water bottle to school each day.
