Chestnut Class



                                                             Welcome to the Year 5 Class of 2019

This year the class will be taught by Mr Cowie. Mrs Gerrard will be helping with Maths groups while Mrs Worsley will take small groups for English lessons.  This term, P.E lessons will be on a Monday afternoon and all the children will take part in swimming lessons on Friday afternoons.


Maths and English homework will be sent home every Friday. There will be a range of activities to complete, linked to the learning taking place in class. New spellings will be sent home every week and will be tested on a weekly basis as we develop our understanding of different spelling rules.  


We read frequently throughout the week, whether it is individually, shared reading or in a guided reading group. So reading for at least 10/15 minutes every day would be very beneficial.  Books can be changed in school any day of the week; please ensure book reviews are completed in order to receive another book. All children must complete an 'Accelerated Reader' quiz after they have read each book. 


If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, I am always happy to help.


 Anti- Bullying week W/C 11th September - this week the children will be learning about friendships, e-safety and anti-bullying.



Introducing Chestnut Eco Council Members


We have decided to set up an 'Eco Council' in school to help the school to become more environmentally friendly. The children prepared speeches and voted for who they wanted to represent them in the meetings. The children chose: 



They will be attending meetings and will listen to any suggestions that the rest of the class may have.
