Chestnut 2017 - 2018

Mr Garrett

Mr Garrett is very excited to be teaching this FANTASTIC class. There is an exciting and fun filled term ahead with lots of interesting things to learn about.

He is lucky enough to have travelled lots of the world and is passionate about sharing stories of his adventures and experiences with the children. He has already shown the children videos of him trekking through the rainforest in Borneo.

He is responsible for Literacy throughout the school, so there is sure to be lots of exciting writing going on in class.

Outside school, Mr Garrett loves to get wet with surfing being his favourite past-time. He also enjoys playing and watching lots of sports which include football, rugby and athletics.

He can often be seen doing after school clubs and other extra- curricular activities.

Welcome to the Chestnut class page!

Welcome to Chestnut class. I hope you all had a lovely summer and it is great to see you all back safe and sound. We have an action packed year ahead with lots of exciting topics to explore.

To kick us off, we will be exploring the the Rainforests of the world, with a particular focus on the Amazon. In literacy we will be following a great text called Journey to the River Sea, and using our writing skills to write, diary entries, poems, letters and factual reports. In maths, we will be  getting to grips with place value and recaping on methods of addition and subtraction. There will be lots of challenges and reasoning problems to get our heads around. 

The termly overview is attached below.
