Welcome to Chestnut Class. Everyone has settled very well into the new school term and of course the Year 1 routines. We are pleased to see the children trying hard to be independent. This week we have been busy writing our class rules and our wishes for this year. In maths we have been sorting objects and counting accurately. Tonight your child will come home with a list of spellings to practise in readiness for a spelling test next Friday, and a piece of maths homework which is to be completed and put into our homework tray in the classroom. Next week our class book will be ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We will be writing about the characters and retelling the story.
