Chestnut - Year 1

Welcome to Chestnut - Year 1!

Welcome to Chestnut Class!

We could not feel more proud of the way that Chestnut Class have settled into life in Year 1. The children have had a super start to the term, and have already been learning lots. Well done to everyone! 

For the first few weeks in Year 1, our aim is to enable a smooth transition from EYFS (which can sometimes feel very big for some children), and we do this by mirroring some of the elements of school that the children have become so used to, including; outdoor learning, continuous provision, inspiring role play areas and inviting book corners. This approach has already proven to be successful, and the children love having the freedom to make choices about their learning, and spending time building upon their social skills with their new classmates.  

The children were VERY surprised to see this week that Jack (the main character from the story ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’) had completely covered our classroom in autumn leaves! This was definitely a WOW moment and a great introduction to our new English topic of Fairy Tales.
