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 Autumn term in our History lessons, Chestnut Class will discover how life changed between the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. 

We will investigate forces and magnets during the first half term in Science. After half time, we will learn about the human digestive system and the functions of different types of teeth.

In Art, we will look at Stone Age cave paintings and modern-day graffiti. 

Within our french lessons, we will learn simple greetings, simple statements about name and age, numbers 1-20 and how to ask simple questions.

What Chestnut Class have been learning this week.

In Chestnut this week, we made edible rocks! We used biscuits, yoghurt, chocolate, and hundreds and thousands to represent the different layers of mud and dinosaur bones. In Maths, we partitioned numbers in various ways to help us understand their place value. We used our ICT skills this week to help us improve our French. We learnt how to send an email on Purple Mash to teach Miss Haresign how to greet and ask what someone's name is in French. We also learned how to save a photo from Google and attach it to our email. 

Class Information:

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

The times table test is in class on Monday.

PE is on Tuesday and Thursday.  On Tuesday we would like the children to come to school in their uniforms and bring their PE kits with them to change into.  On Thursday, we would like the children to come to school in their PE kits.

Curriculum Overview Autumn 2022


Our Geography lessons have taught us about the world's biomes. We are lucky to have our school in a beautiful location, so we took advantage of this and went on an exploration to collect some valuable resources!
