Chestnut Class 2023 - 2024

Mrs Mckay

Welcome to Chestnut Class! 

We are the Year 3 and 4 class at Ampney Crucis Primary School and the 'class on the grass', as we are situated in our lovely classroom, away from the main building.  We are a fun and enthusiastic group who love learning, being curious and having fun!

In Chestnut, we are supported by Mrs Paxford every morning and some afternoons. 

Please see the links to 'letters' and curriculum overview below for this term's information. 

Homework in Chestnut Class consists of weekly spellings and sentence task; a grammar activity linked to what we have been learning in English and a maths task, again providing the opportunity to practise an element of maths covered during the week. Occasionally, I will choose a topic-related or more creative task. These are in addition to times tables using TT Rockstars and reading to an adult. 

Our class books for this term are: The Last Bear by Hannah Gold, and Greta and the Giants. 


Forest School. This will be for YEAR 3 only until half term. Please see the letter emailed (or fibd it on this page) about what your child needs to take part. 

PE takes place on Tuesday with Mr Wood from Atlas Sports. YEAR 4 will have PE on Monday afternoons, this term, whilst Year 3 are at Forest School. The year groups will swap after half term. 

Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be in to be marked on Wednesday. 

My PPA time takes place on Tuesday afternoons, when the class will be covered by Mrs Wood.

**Please find an old t-shirt at home for your child to use in DT this term. We will be making sustainable bags. Any other bits of material could be useful, too!**
