What's going on in Horse Chestnut Class?

Welcome to Horse Chestnut Class!

Over the next six weeks we will be learning about Native Americans. We will be looking at the historical events that took place at the time and comparing them to events that took place in Europe.

In Horse Chestnut class we have high expectations for reading at home and school. Reading is extreamly important for pupils, as it helps them impove academically in all aspects of the curriculum. Please ensure that your child has an adult signature to show when they have read at home. We will be recognising pupils achievments with our 'Champion reader' scheme.

I have uploaded the curriculum map and the Topic homework grid for this half term below.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to come and talk to me.
