Horse Chestnut Class Updates

 Welcome to our class page!

We have had an excellent week in Horse Chestnut class.

In literacy this week we have been looking at the legend ‘Beowulf’. We have created our own heroes and monsters and have planned our own stories. Next week we will use these to write our own versions of the Beowulf legend.

In maths we have been recapping the methods for multiplication and division. Next week we will spend a final week on this topic, putting our knowledge into action through problem solving and reasoning tasks.

On Monday we started to create a model of Earth, showing the different layers throughout it. We also looked at how volcanoes form and discussed the movement of the magma in the mantle, using a lava lamp as an example:


We also had our first rugby session on Wednesday. Despite the windy and wet weather, we had a wonderful time with our new coach. We played lots of team building games and practised moving into space with the ball.

Next week in literacy:

We are continuing with our work on the legend ‘Beowulf’, using the basic format of the story to create our own characters.

Next week we will be writing our own legends from our story plans.

Next week in maths:

We will be finishing off our topic of multiplication and division. We will be working on problem solving and using all we have learnt to solve tricky challenges.
