Welcome to Chestnut!
Welcome to Chestnut Class, we are now getting back into the swing of things and the children are settling into their final year at Ryedene. Our topic for this term is World War II and the children are already engaged and asking lots of questions. We will be making model Anderson Shelters next half-term, so start saving carboard boxes please. Children will be coming home with spelling lists and revision guides and we would like to ask you to support your children with their revision so that by the time they have to sit their SATs, they are feeling more confident. This is a busy term for us and we are looking forward to sharing different events with you.
We have been reading Goodnight Mister Tom to give the children a better understanding of what life was like during World War II, especially for children who had been evacuated. Please encourage your child to read this book as it will support their understanding of life during World War II, particularly during the second half term when we will be looking more closely into life as an evacuee. There is also a film based on the book which your children could watch.
Please remember to practise your reading, spellings and times tables in preparation for SATS.
