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 we will be taking part in an experience day next week .We will also be making model Anderson Shelters this half-term, so start saving carboard boxes please. Children will soon be coming home with 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.
Black History Week
We have also celebrated with Black History Day and researched our favourite role-models and their achievements. We each wrote our own, "I have a dream" speech and recorded them. The African Drumming was very exciting too.(See photos)
Please remember to practise your reading, spellings and times tables in preparation for SATS.
