Horse Chestnut Tree Class

Hello, Horse Chestnut Class!

This half term, we will be investigating the topic Misty Mountains! We will explore what mountains are, where they can be found, how they are made, as well as the kinds of activities that people can take part in there.

We will sketch mountain landscapes in Art and incorporate our topic into our Literacy work.

Our Science lessons on Properties of Materials will be very practical, involving separating mixtures, reversible and irreversible changes, insulating materials, etc.

HCT PE days will be Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure children come into school in PE kit on those days. Long hair should be tied back and no earrings, please.


Children should be practising multiplication and division on Times Table Rockstars. Please help your children to access this – the skills they develop will help them with so much of the Maths curriculum.

Please also see the Homework grid. Children should choose an item from the grid and hand in the homework on a Friday.


Tests will be on a Monday. Children will then receive their new spellings, which we will work on in class over the week. Spelling books will go home on the Friday so that children can practise over the weekend for the test on Monday.

Reading is such an important skill and underpins almost every other subject in school. Please ensure that you hear your child read at least 3 times a week and that you sign the reading record.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Ms Patmore works with us on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
