What's going on in Horse Chestnut Class?

Welcome back!

Our topic this term is Stone Age to Iron Age. I would like to thank you all for the effort everyone put into the fantastic outfits that the children came in wearing on our Launch Day. We had a lot of fun making cave paintings and stone age necklaces.

To celebrate the end of our topic, I have organised a trip to Braintree Museum. Further information will follow nearer the time.

If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to come and talk to me.

Horse Chestnut Class Notices


PE will be on a Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon.  Please ensure all pupils have their full PE kit (labelled). Long hair must be tied up and all jewellery removed. 


Each Friday your child will be sent home with a list of spellings to learn, ready for a test on Monday, and some maths homework, which will either be consolidation of the maths we have been learning during the week or for them to learn their times tables.

There is also a topic homework map available on this page for the children to complete by the end of the topic (March).

Lego Hobbit As part of our new whole class guided reading, we are reading The Hobbit. This video is made up of all the cutscenes from the Lego Hobbit video game. I have provided this link as I felt it would be a suitable and fun way to help the children understand the story.
