Welcome to Chestnut Class

Chestnut Class consists of 22 hard working, successful Year 1 children. Our teaching team this year is Miss Southwell, Mrs Walkes and Mrs Meredith. 

   

    

 

We are a busy class who enjoy learning inside and outside. We do lots of practical, creative work and get really ‘hands-on’, relishing the chance to investigate. In Chestnut Class we are engineers, inventors, scientists, mathematicians, artists, musicians and authors to name a few! We consistently try our best and build each other up. We are not afraid to make mistakes. We help each other to reach our full potential and to enjoy our time at Trinity. We really are one big ‘Chestnut Team’.  

 

Things to remember…

Reading

Children should read/be read to daily for 20 mins, this should be recorded in their reading records. You’ll be amazed at how much progress they make! In Chestnut class we have a ‘Read a Rainbow’ challenge. Every child must read 4 times a week to work their way around the rainbow with a special reward at the end of each term.
