Dear Chestnut parents,
Welcome back! I hope you all had a good half term. I’m writing to let you know that our new topic will be focusing on North America, in particular the Caribbean. We will also have a look at Christopher Columbus and how he compares to Neil Armstrong as an explorer.
This term has a whole lot of different events going on – the trip to We The Curious is coming up quickly, on Wednesday 13th. Thank you to all those who offered help, we have got the right number of helpers now. Parents’ evening will be on Tuesday 12th and Thursday 14th November, with sign-up sheets available immediately before and after school in the staff room. Reminders for other events will be sent out closer to the time.
There is no forest school at all this term for either year group.PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday, and Year 2s will continue swimming on a Thursday morning.
Amazingly, we’ll begin practising the Christmas play pretty much immediately – this year’s selection is “Lights, Camel, Action!”. Typically, Year 3s get the biggest roles, followed by Year 2s and then Year 1 taking more of a supporting role.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
Here’s to a good festive term!
