Comparing and Contrasting Texts!

Last week in Chestnut we read the story of 'Dogger' by Shirley Hughes. We then looked at an Oxford Reading Tree picture book called 'The Lost Teddy'. We talked to our talking partners about what was the same or 'similar' and what was different. We then had to think of how the story would end. We wrote our ideas on snowballs, threw them and then added another idea on another snowball. The best bit though as always is getting to throw them at Mrs Ware at the end. We used these ideas to write own own version of the ending of the story.

Another exciting Forest School day...

Year 1 enjoyed another exciting session of Forest School this week. We learned a new skill - peeling! First we had to make sure we used our tools in a safe manner. We used the 'respect position' and wore a glove on our 'non tooled hand'. The best part was eating the carrots after we peeled them - yum! We had fun in the mud kitchen and working together to build shelters.

Money Problems in Chestnut!

Every day in Chestnut we find the correct coins to pay for our snack. It's interesting to see the different coins we can use to make the same amount.

Algorithm Challenge in Chestnut..

Over the past few weeks we have been working with our talking partners to follow a set of simple instructions or 'algorithm' to make it through a maze. A challenge was then added and we needed to add a quarter turn left or right into our algorithms to navigate the same maze. It was tricky but we did it!!!

Exploring the woods

In year 1 we have been exploring the story "Where's my Teddy?". We wanted to describe what the woods were like, so Sycamore class thought it would be a good idea to go out and explore our own Forest School to get some ideas. We enjoyed looking around and describing what we could see, hear, smell and feel in the forest. Together, we came up with some fabulous adjectives to use in our writing! Here are a few examples: "The bark is dry, rough and bumpy". "The leaves are wet and crunchy under our feet." "The mud is squelchy and brown." "The sticks are dry because they snap easily." "We can smell fresh air and leaves and grass." "We can hear beautiful birds singing and the wind rustling the leave

Outdoor maths!

As you know, all of the children absolutely loved taking part in Outdoor Learning Day last week. Six lucky classes across Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 were able to take part in maths games and challenges outside on the day, including a number treasure hunt, skittles and darts, a traffic survey and throwing beanbags into a hoop to see how many points they could score. The children loved making up their own number lines to jump on and being able to write number sentences on the floor in chalk! They were able to keep score of their friend's points and see which colour car seems to be the most popular around our school. All the children had lots of fun with maths and all had big smiles on their

The children took part in a range of different activities including PE, Music, Art, History, DT, Forest School, Geography, English, Maths and Science.

In Forest School we sat around the camp fire and enjoyed hot chocolate and marshmallows to keep warm. We had fun in the mud kitchen and making collages with leaves, twigs and other natural things we could find. Can you spot yourself?

Chestnut are so dramatic...

Last week we were busy not only reading poetry but also creating our own poems. Guess how we generated the vocabulary and language we needed for our poems! Well, we threw snowballs at Mrs Ware... Don't worry they weren't real snowballs. They were made from paper and we had written our ideas on them first. It was so much fun... This week Chestnut are reading a story called Dogger. Do you know it? It's about a boy called Dave who has a toy dog he is very fond of. The dogs name is Dogger. One day Dave is very quiet and we find out why... In groups we looked at different scenes from the story, we created mind maps to help focus our learning and develop our vocabulary and then we used 'freeze fra

Autumn Leaves are Falling Down

We have been interested in finding out about Autumn and why seasonal changes happen, such as the reason leaves change colour and fall off the trees. Do you know why? Ask someone in Chestnut because we know why! We learnt a song about Autumn leaves and the tune was the same as 'London Bridge'. We set ourselves a challenge. First we created our own verses to the song and then we began to learn how to play D, E, F, G and A on the chime bars. It was so much fun. Look at how fantastic we are...

Chestnut Challenge!

As you may already know Chestnut love a challenge, especially a Mathematical one. We have used new Mathematical skills and knowledge from our Maths lessons to solve historical problems . We have helped a colonel to group soldiers into battalions and the Royal British Legion to calculate how many crates of poppy wreaths would help most people to remember the soldiers of all the wars. Take a look at how we did it...
