Welcome to Chestnut Class’ Homepage.
There are thirty fabulous children in our class. Our teacher is Mrs Davies, and we are supported in class by the wonderful Mrs Rippington and Mrs Gibson.
Read on to find out what fun things we are going to learn this term …
Our topic is called ‘Who Let the Gods Out?’. We will be looking at the history of Ancient Greece and the impact it has had on the way we live our lives today. We will be creating chalk and charcoal drawings of Greek pillars. In computing, we will use scratch to code and debug our very own minotaur maze game. In literacy this term we are writing our own Greek myths and a travel brochure. Our guided read is the Adventure of Odysseus- by Hugh Lupton. Our Science topic will focus on all the skills of working scientifically, we will plan, carry out and evaluate an experiment linked to the Olympics. Towards the end of the term, we are excited to carry out a DT day where we will create Greek sandals for our Greek character.
This term we will be competing as two teams across UKS2, Athens and Sparta.
Each week we will take part in team challenges, appealing to the artistic, academic traits, and the physical traits of
these common Greek city states. I'm sure you will hear of our many adventures... are you
Team Athens, or Team Sparta!
