SLS Recommended Reading Books

Year 3

Year 4

Books that promote diversity and inclusion

Welcome to Chestnut Class. We are a mixed class of year 3 and 4 children. Our class teacher is Miss Haresign, and our trainee teacher is Mrs Hussey. Our learning support assistants are Mrs Duffy and Mrs Wood.

During the Spring Term, Chestnut Class will be 'Time Travellers' and focus on Roman Britain in their History lessons.  We will learn about their impact on Britain and what they left behind.

Traditional Roman mosaics will inspire our Art lessons, and we will look at the work of Antoni Gaudi.

In our Geography lessons, we will focus on the question: Are all rivers the same as our local rivers?

During the first half term in Science, we will study the water cycle and how things change from a solid to a liquid and a gas.  After half term, we will explore forces and magnets.

In Design Technology, we will be looking at mechanisms.  Our knowledge will help us design, make and evaluate a moving toy.

What Chestnut Class have been learning this week.

This week in Chestnut class we have been reading the Jabberwocky by Lewis Carol. We first thought the words were nonsense but throughout the week, using our English skills, we have made the poem make much more sense! In History, we learnt about the many things which the Romans introduced to BritaIn that we still use today. In Science, we listened to a catchy water cycle song which helped us learn about the process.

Class Information:

Spellings will be tested in class on Friday. The class will have time in class during the week to practice their spellings.

Curriculum Overview Spring 2023


In Science, we used various ingredients such as biscuits, yoghurt, chocolate, fondant and hundreds and thousands to represent the different layers of mud and dinosaur bones. We created igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks and got to eat them after!
