Chestnut Class

Welcome to Chestnut Class! 

We are the Year 3 and 4 class at Ampney Crucis Primary School. We are a fun and enthusiastic class who love learning, especially when it involves thinking about 'big ideas' and being creative.

Chestnut Class is taught by Mrs McKay, Mrs Wood (Wednesday afternoons) and supported by Mrs Paxford. 

We have lots to look forward to over the term including travelling with Milo through the tollbooth in search of the princesses Rhyme and Reason. So far, we are enjoying meeting the characters and discussing what it all means! The majority of our written work in English will be based around this book. I love the fact that so many children have now started reading this fantastic adventure at home, as well!

As swimming has finished for us, this year, our second PE topic will be dance. This runs alongside our Thursday session with Mr Wood. 

For our RE unit, we will be thinking about why and how people want to make the world a better place and will focus on some prominent figures - both religious and non-religious - as well as describing ways that we can make changes, as well. 

We shall be singing reggae songs and adding percussion in music, learning how to keep ourselves safe in PSHE and learning all about mountains and volcanoes in Geography.

In science, we shall further develop our understanding of the impact of good nutrition on our bodies, as well as looking at the function of the skeleton and muscles.

In maths we continue to develop our reasoning skills through a range of units including addition and subtraction and geometry. 

Mrs Wood will continue to teach computing and French on Wednesday afternoons and I know the children are going to be excited about the Young Leaders project that she will be working on with them.

All in all, a busy term (again!)
