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 Summer Term in our History lessons, Chestnut Class will discover facts about the Titanic and determine whether it was a triumph or tragedy. 

In our Geography lessons, we will focus on the question: Is Southampton a gateway to the world? We will build our knowledge and understanding of Southampton's land use and settlement and how Southampton is connected to the world. 

Our Science lessons will enable us to explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal and explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant.

In our Art lessons, we will be using water as our stimulus. In DT, we will prepare sandwiches that will consider different dietary needs. 

Check out out blog every week to see some of our work.
