Year 3 and 4 Chestnut Tree Class Spring Term

Please find information about weekly homework here. Chestnut class are swimming each Monday afternoon up until the half term. Please ensure your children bring their swim kit with them to school in the morning.
After a great start to the year Chestnut Tree class are beginning to delve into our new topic- becoming Tomb Raiders themselves and discovering the awesome Egyptians!
 
 
To start the new year off with a bang Chestnut class have been using their design and technology skills to build water rockets!
 
We designed, researched, trialled and tested our rockets and various design features and even looked into Newton's laws of motion and how we could make ours fly the furthest!
 
All the groups did fantastically well with the group with the furthest flying rocket being given the opportunity to attend a competition and presentation day at KEVICC in the summer term!
 
Within our Literacy we have been discovering what makes successful and effective instruction writing, by experimenting with instructions for making sandwiches, building rockets and designing magic potions sp far!
 
In Maths we have been challenging ourselves with our calculation strategies and are looking forward to working with fractions.
