Hello Chestnut Class, it won’t be long now until you’re in Elm Class!
Usually, the Summer Term is when we do lots more activities together, although, we’ve all been on a visit to Blists Hill, taken part in a Christmas performance, learnt songs for a cancelled singing festival and learnt about The Great Fire of London together so we’re nearly old friends!
I know that you have all worked hard while in Chestnut Class to be the best that you can be. I have seen your reading scores, maths scores and your writing in your books. It’s been especially good to see some of you for the past few weeks even though it was very strange in school.
I’m really looking forward to welcoming you into Elm Class in September. You can email email@example.com to tell me a bit about yourself if you’d like.
Have a fantastic summer!
We’ve come to the end of the year in a very strange way indeed. I’m glad we have lots of good memories to look back on even though you weren’t in school for the whole year.
Do you remember our visit to Blists Hill where we all dressed up as Victorians? It was very funny! We learnt lots of songs for our Christmas performance and you all looked fabulous on the stage. We had only just got through to Science Week when we all had to go home because of the Coronavirus. We’d also learnt all the songs for our singing festival at ‘Big Belvidere’ but it was cancelled. I’m glad we got to learn about The Great Fire of London and I hope you all remember some of the main facts. Your art work of burning London has made a lovely display in the corridor!
Thank you for the emails I have had, it’s been lovely to see what you have been getting up to whilst at home – Jay caught a huge fish and Allegra had a socially distanced Sport’s Day with her friends! You can keep sending them in if you like and I can pass them onto your new teacher.
It’s been great to finish off the year with a few familiar faces from Elm Class. Skye, Jess and Gracie, you have been fab company and I’ve enjoyed seeing you in school even though it’s been a bit strange!
Have a great summer, but as always, keep reading and learning your 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Move onto 3s if you can!
Best wishes for next year, you’ll all be fab!

This is the last ‘Science at Home’ activity before the holidays.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the investigations!
Here are your new ideas for Home Learning. There’s lots of ideas to prepare you for your next class and ways to tell your teacher a little bit about yourself.
Have a go at the science investigations, is your den waterproof?
Have Fun and remember to read, read read!
Hello again, I’m not liking this weather we are having!
Mrs Richards and I have mixed up the learning ideas a little bit, we hope you find them fun and a little bit challenging.
You can now contact Mrs Richards and I through the class email address.
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
We would love to see some photos of any projects you have completed or even a message to say hello!
Have fun and keep reading!
Here’s a fun idea that everyone can have a go at, from Reception all the way up to Year 6!
Let us know how you get on!
Some of the children will be familiar with a website called ‘Explorify’. It’s totally free, you just need to register. The more activities you ‘Mark as Done’ the more it releases. We’ve found out some very strange and fascinating facts in class. Try the Zoom in, Zoom out activities – see if you can guess what they are!
They have started to produce some resources for use at home. There are some lovely ideas to get you talking about science which isn’t related to COVID-19!
Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe. It looks like the weather is changing but hopefully it’ll be sunny again soon.
This is usually one of the busiest terms of the year with lots of fun things to do such as visits, Sport’s Day, Summer Fair… I’m sure you’re all missing being with each other and playing games together. I’m missing my friends and family too. Be strong, we can do this!
Please take a look through the home learning ideas and have a go at some. If you have photos of things you have made at home, please send them in via email. We’d love to see them!
As always, the most important thing you can do is to keep reading as much as possible. We don’t want you to forget everything you have learnt in school so far, you’ve all worked so hard in Chestnut and Elm Class!
Please stay safe and keep washing your hands!
The children of Keyworkers have created some Woodland Art today, using clay and things they found on the ground.
