Chestnut Class Year  5

Welcome to Chestnut Class!

We've been planning our approach to the children's learning and well-being from March 8th. Our plan can be summarised as Map, Master and Move On.
Mapwe find out what the children have learned since January, what has stuck and what needs re-teaching. We also map out their emotional and social needs and work on re-establishing relationships and behaviour expectations in the classroom.
Master - we consolidate the learning since January, making sure the foundations are solid. We make sure the children are settled back into school, secure in their relationships and are having their wellbeing needs met. We make sure behaviours, rules and routines are all back on track.
Move On - at this point, we crack on with new learning at a good, but sustainable, pace.
