Welcome to the Chestnut class page! I hope you all had a wonderful summer break and are excited to start learning about exciting things in Chestnut class with me (Mrs Kerry) and Miss Keighley who is our teaching assistant.



PE is on a Monday and a Thursday. This could take place inside or outside. Please bring a PE kit in and leave it in school to be taken home over the holidays for washing. Unfortunately, things happen and the day for PE may need to be changed one week so it is best to be prepared and keep kits in school.



Homework will be completed on Google classrooms and will be given on a Friday. There will be a grid of activities to choose from and complete. At least one activity must be done per week. Please submit this by Thursday the following week. 


Reading books:

Reading books will be given by your child's phonics teacher, related to their reading level. Please read each book 3 times before changing it and please read with your child 3 times a week. This should be written in their reading record book. Books can be changed on any day of the week so please bring this book bag in every day.


Logins for Purple Mash, TTRS, Google classrooms and Reading eggs will be placed into your child's reading record.


If you have any questions, please grab me at any time in the morning or after school or send an email to:

Chestnut@newmoston.manchester and I will reply as soon as I can.


I look forward to welcoming you all back. 

Mrs Kerry

Topic - Who was to blame for The Great Fire of London?

As historians, we will learn about events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally in learning about the events that took place in 1666 during the Great Fire of London, as well as describing the causes and consequences of this event.

As scientists, we will be asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways, observing closely, using simple equipment, performing simple tests, identifying and classifying, using our observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions as well as gathering and recording data to help in answering questions.

We will distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made, identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, and rock, describe the simple physical properties of a variety of everyday materials and compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties.
