Chestnut Class

Welcome to Chestnut Class page
We are really looking forward to an exciting year of learning. Please keep checking our class page for more information.
Autumn 1 - Field to Fork
Our topic this half term is 'Field to Fork' where we will be focusing on food and where it comes from in Geography and what plants need to survive in Science.
Our main text in English is, 'Avocado Asks' by Momoko Abe.
Maths Investigation Day
During Maths Investigation Day we explored which Numicon Shapes we were able to cover the Peg Board with. We made predictions as to which Shapes we thought we would be able to, and then shared our findings.
We also explored creating patterns and pictures using the Cuisenaire Rods. 
In the afternoon we played a game of 'Crack the Code'. We had to solve different number problems hiding in the outdoor area. We then had to check to see which letter each number was linked too. Finally, we had to unscramble the letters to work out the hidden code.
Afterwards we tried to create our own number codes for our friends.
Home Learning in Year 2
Home learning will be set weekly on Seesaw. Please find below a Home Learning Menu for the year. Please choose one of the tasks and complete it over the relevant half-term.
