Chestnut Class is taught by Mr Handy, supported by Mrs Renshaw.

This page contains regular updates of our learning both in and out of the classroom, photos of activities and useful links. You can also find important information here such as timetables, class newsletters, educational visit details and spelling lists.

Important Points in our Timetable:

PE is on Tuesdays and Friday. Come to school in PE kit.

Home-learning is handed out on Friday, to be completed by Wednesday. Early hand-in is fine!

Spellings and maths recall tests are on Thursday. The children cannot learn it on on Wednesday evening!


What You Can Do To Help At Home!

Please help your child by supporting them with their homework, spellings and times tables. Times times is central to the Year Three maths curriculum, therefore you should encourage your child to practice and learn times tables on a daily basis. By the end of Year Four, it is essential that all children know their timestables up to 12x12 so they are prepared for upper KS2 maths.

Please click on the below links for example times table grids to practise with:

60 times tables grid ~ Answer Sheet

Mixed 144 times tables grid ~ Answer Sheet

144 division grid ~ Answer Sheet


Covid-19 Precautions

Please check that your child has a ruler, 2 pencils, a pencil sharpener (that catches shavings) and eraser at school.  We've seen an increase in Chestnuts of in children not being equipped for learning, and trying to borrow equipment, with obvious implications for infection. Thanks.

Christmas Hamper!


Please try to bring in some items for the Christmas hamper. They need to be white (ish!). Thanks

Caesar's Camp

Looking for something to do for an hour on the weekend? As we will soon be looking at the Iron Age, you might be interested in a visit to Caesar's Camp; an Iron Age hill fort a few minutes from the school.  Nearest parking is the Lookout Discovery Centre.



Please feel free to email me any pictures from your trip!

A Repeated Request

A few of the children are still cumming to school without all the equipment they need. Please ensure the children bring pencils, an eraser and a pencil sharpener (one that catches the shavings) to school.  Although some are available to borrow, this is obviously not ideal in the current Covid-19 situation.


Week 3 Home-Learning

Some of the children ended up finishing up their home-learning at school this week. Could you please encourage your child to read the homework carefully, and complete all the tasks. Please remember it is great to help your child, but if your child struggled, write a note on the homework, so I give extra support in the following week.


The children have all been given paper copies of the homework.


They also need to learn the spellings they were given on Friday, for next THURSDAY.  The words were:

Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge Organisers provide the basic information needed for each foundation subject. We are currently learning about Rocks (Science) and Pre-History (History), so here are the Knowledge Organisers. It would be great if you could read through these with your child.

Week one Homework

To give the children a gentle introduction to the year, homework this week is just to practice drawing lines accurately: a vital skill in KS 2.  Also to learn the 2x table, as we have forgotten a lot of our Maths recall over the past few months.


Please encourage the children to draw very carefully.  And of course; please encourage your child to read to you every day!
