Chestnut Class (Year 4/5)

Welcome to Year 4 and 5!


Our class teacher is Mrs Lester, except on Monday mornings when we are taught by Mrs Daly and Mrs Burns. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Collins, Mr Cox and Miss Smith.


Learning this term:

Our topic for this term is 'The Marvellous Maya', and we are exploring 'properties and changes of materials' in Science.


Children taking in part in lunchtime or after school sports clubs, or sporting events during the school day, should also have the correct PE kit in school on those days, including specialist footwear, such as football boots.


We have Forest School on Wednesdays.

Please can all children make sure they wear layers of clothing to forest school, including a long sleeve top, warm trousers, a warm fleece or jumper, a weather-proof coat, warm socks and wellies or waterproof walking boots. It is important that the children are able to keep warm and dry but are also able to remove layers of clothing to cool down when it is warm.


More details about what we will be learning this term can be found on our curriculum overview.



Homework is set every week on our Google Classroom and will include:

  • Reading - please can children aim to read at least 5 times each week and log their reading in their reading record book.
  • Spellings - the children are asked to log into Spelling Shed to practice their spellings each week through assignments that have been set. They can also do the 'Spelling Soup' activities and aim to achieve 15 spelling soup points each week.
  • Times tables practice - the children have many different methods for learning their times tables but they also enjoy challenging themselves on 'Times Table Rock Stars'.
  • Maths - the children are asked to log into Maths Shed to complete the assignments that have been set.
