World Maths Day 23/3/22


Today is World Maths Day. 

Below are some ideas of activities you can do at home with your child. 

We hope you enjoy doing some of them.

Hi Chestnut Class, 


Here is your homework grid for Spring 1! smiley 

2D Shape Digging


In Chestnut class, we have been learning about 2d shapes. We have been naming them and describing their properties. Today, we did a shape dig where we looked at large shapes, described and named them, then found as many matching shapes as we could in 30 seconds! 

What shape names can you remember?

How many sides/vertices does it have?

Are the sides curved or straight?

Florence Nightingale

We have begun to learn all about Florence Nightingale. We passed around lots of medical items and a nurse outfit to allow the children to deduce more about who Florence Nightingale was. We had lots of fun using the equipment.

Everyday heroes

We have been learning all about everyday heroes; people who work in jobs that help others. We had some heroes come in and speak to us. We held a Q and A session with Vicky (a paralympian with her guide dog), Craig (a police officer) and John (a local PCSO). We generated thoughtful questions and learned a lot about their jobs.

Google Classroom


We are now putting homework on Google Classroom for the children to complete. 

There would also be learning put onto Google Classroom if the school had to shut due to unforeseen circumstances.

There has been an invitation sent for them to accept and join the classroom. 

Every child has their e mail address and password which they will need to access the classroom in their reading record book. 

I am also attaching a guide to using Google Classroom which will hopefully help you if you are new to this!

If you need any support with this, please contact your child's teacher or me (Mrs Waddell) and one of us can go through this with you. 

There are also useful Read, Write, Inc videos for the children to watch to support their learning in school. 


Remember: we are here to help!

Biscuit decorating!

Today in Chestnut class, we decorated biscuits using our superhero designs. We incorporated a variety of colours and followed our designs carefully.
