Look at our Learning!

 Summer 2

We have had a fantastic last term as Chestnuts! Please see below some pictures from the term.

This term in Mission Art we have been designing and creating our own masks. We designed them and then created our design using clay, some of us found moulding the clay a little difficult however we are all proud of our end design. 

During maths we have been learning about 3D shapes. We enjoyed making 3D shapes with the cubes and then we tried making some 3D shapes out of paper. 

For the whole of June the school have been taking part in a '100 challenge' as a class we decided to do four challenges. Below is a picture of the class celebrating achieving our 100 hits of a cricket ball challenge.

In Chestnut we love a challenge and as part of our 100 challenge we decided as a class to walk/run 100 laps of the school field. However we exceeded 100 laps and ended up doing 245 laps of the field! The picture below is us celebrating doing 245 laps.

The picture below is the class celebrating achieving one of our 100 challenges which was too find and record 100 Wow words.

The pictures below are the class celebrating achieving reading 107 books during the month of June, our challenge was to read 100!

During one of our RE lessons we made a frame for The Lord's Prayer. We also had a discussion about Christianity, we have been covering lots of different religions during our RE lessons. 

Here is a picture from our Skipping workshop. We enjoyed learning how to skip and some different tricks that our instructor taught us. At the end of the session our instructor then showed us some tricks she knew. 

In mission Science we have been learning about solid's, liquid's and gases. This week we have enjoyed looking at different solid's and liquid's as well as trying to hear different gases. 

During one of our English lessons we joined in with a 'Interview with a tiger' literature workshop. Ms Clegg then set us some homework to write our own story about an 'Interview with a ...'. 

Here are some pictures from our 'Urban Strides' workshop. The instructor taught us how to do a Street Locket dance. We enjoyed learning all the different dance moves that made up the whole dance. 

Please see the picture below of some of our Father's Day cards. 

In Mission Science, we have been investigating forces and magnets. We have enjoyed making our predictions and then carrying out our experiments to test our predictions. We have investigated push and pull forces, the effects of friction on different surfaces, compared magnetic and non-magnetic materials, whether magnets will attract or repel and the effects of magnetic forces and distance.

In Mission Art, we have been learning about the famous impressionist artist Claude Monet. We have studied different pieces of his art and then worked hard to recreate his paintings. We have used different mediums to recreate his artwork, including coloured pencil, chalk, water colours and tissue paper. We hope you like our amazing artwork work. 

In PHSE, we have been learning about 'healthy me' which included learning about the importance of eating healthy and doing regular exercise. We have also been learning about how to stay safe online and stranger danger.  

During 'Roald Dahl Day', the children really enjoyed dressing up; here are some of the children, dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl characters. I'm sure you'll agree, all the children look super!

Below are some photos taken during our 'Roman Day'; the children especially enjoyed dressing up and participating in various Roman themed activities throughout the day, which were linked to our Mission History work.  Also, we are very proud of our Christmas decoration DT sewing project, successfully completed by all members of Chestnut Class in Autumn Term 2; the photos show the children's end product, which we'd like to share with you. Finally, further below are some snapshots of our learning and the wonderful work produced in Chestnut Class during Autumn Term 1.
