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, being curious and having fun!

Spring Term 2

 This term, we will be digging into all things fossils! This will connect our learning in Geography, Science and English - writing and reading - and will, of courcse, be the focus of our exciting trip to Lyme Regis!

Please see below for a brief overview of some of our units this term.

English - biography of Mary Anning, diary extract and explanation text.

Maths - both year groups will be mainly working in formal written methods for all four operations. 

Geography - The Jurassic Coast: where iit is, what it is, physical featrures and how it has changed over time. 

Science - fossils, rocks and soil.

RE - Why do Christians call the day Jesus died 'Good friday'?

PE - Mr Wood will continue his sessions on Thursdays and we will do gymnastics on Fridays as well. Please can children wear PE kits on both days.

Music - glockenspiels: after our success of the previous unit, we are going to learn more skills on this instrument.

Art - self portraits, as well as painting in the style of Paul Klee. 

It's going to be another busy term!
