Chestnut Class Year  5 & 6

Hello Chestnut Class! I will update this page regularly with activities for you to do at home.

For the next two weeks, our class page will be a little different. We're still putting up tasks for you to do, but instead of Maths and English, we'll have a range of other subjects such as Art and French. We will also put up a Mental Health and Well-being activity for you to do each day.  Some projects may be ongoing, others will change each day. Check in to see what's new!

If you get stuck or have any questions for me, you can contact me on the class email below:

Before you go on to see today's new tasks, take a look at these pictures sent in from Colin. He's done some exciting-looking Easter crafts with his family. He's been outside investigating tadpoles, which fits in perfectly with our Animals and Living Things Science work! He's also made a "Coronavirus Jar", where you make a note each week of what you would like to do when the lockdown is over. You read these notes when things are back to normal - not only will this give you fantastic ideas of what to do - but I think it will also make us all more appreciative of the many wonderful things in our lives when all this is over. Absolutely amazing Colin - thank you to you and your family for the pictures and inspiration!
