Chestnut Class (Year 3)

Welcome to Chestnut Class
 
Chestnut Class is a  Year 3 class. Miss Conroy is the class teacher Monday to Wednesday, and Mrs Metcalfe is the class teacher Wednesday to Friday. They have the shared support of our apprentice Miss Clapperton. 
Autumn term 1
This half term we have enjoyed doing some of our science lessons in the outdoor areas. We have been learning all about forces, such as magnets, friction, gravity, air and water resistance.  At the forest we talked about gravity finding things that had fallen from trees and learnt about air-resistance by dropping different objects at the same time and observing how they fell to the ground. We also used compasses to navigate around the forest area learning about the use of magnets to help determine the north and south poles.  
Friday 25th September
Chestnut had great fun today learning about the Netherlands. Lots of us came to school with a fact to share such as, what is the capital of Holland? Do you know? It begins with A_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
We learned how to count to 10 and shared some greetings and Dutch words with our friends. There was a divide in our appreciation of Dutch food we all seemed to enjoy the Edam cheese but there were lots of expressive faces when we tasted the liquorice. To compliment our persuasive writing topic we created colourful, emotive and descriptive posters all about the Netherlands to entice people to visit. 
 
STOP PRESS
Chestnut on lockdown!
Due to unforeseen circumstances Chestnut class began their October half term early. But that did not stop them from continuing their hard work and making us all proud. Creating abstract art inspired by the forest and our forces topic, writing about the Foolish witch, creating their own exercise moves and practising their maths skills, Chestnut have been really busy. Well done Chestnut!
