Home Learning Chestnut Class

Don't forget Chestnuts, Parents and Carers to log on to Zoom today (WEDNESDAY 8TH JULY 2020)  at 11.30am ( morning and FT children) and 12noon for afternoon children. The teachers are looking forward to seeing and speaking to you then! 

Hello Chestnuts, Parents and Carers!


This is the last week of home learning that I am posting on the school website before the summer holidays! I really cannot believe that this is week 15! Where have the weeks gone?!

I have really enjoyed uploading fun learning activities, songs and rhymes onto the website and Tapestry and I hope that you and your children have benefited greatly from this, especially during the last lockdown and the current lockdown that we are all in now. These are challenging times and we are not through the woods yet but I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Chestnut children- you have been a super class and amazing throughout this time and it has been wonderful to see  all  of your lovely photos of the learning you have been doing at home! The teachers have really missed you and we wish you all the very  best as you move into Foundation Stage 2!  Also we will be sad to see Mrs Young leave us at the end of this academic year; she has been a wonderful teacher for many years at St Mary's and we will miss her but we wish her a long and happy retirement!

Thanks to you parents and carers for all your support to the staff and to your lovely children; we really have appreciated it!                                                                                                Remember you still have this last week to email us if you have questions or queries about the home learning or anything else that may be troubling you.

Please upload any photos to the Chestnut email address.


Many thanks and happy holidays from the Chestnut Staff!

Home Learning Grid 18th May 2020 Week 9

Look at what we've been doing at home!

Hello Chestnuts, Parents and Carers!

The teachers hope that you are all safe and well!

Please find below the Home learning Grid for this week; I have incorporated the structured learning grid into 1 document to try and make it easier for you to read and digest rather than having 2 documents to open!

Thank you so much for your continuing efforts; we realise that it can't be easy trying to home school as well as looking after your child but you are all doing a grand job!smiley

As I have said before every child is different; try to do as much as you can manage; you know what suits your child best and how they process and learn information.

If you have any concerns about your child please do not hesitate to contact us on our class email address:  Alternatively you can ring the school office if you need to talk to the teachers if you have concerns about your child's (or your own) health and well-being. We are here to support  you every step of the way through this testing time.


Best Wishes,

Chestnut Staff.

Super home learning!

Home learning is fun!

We are so busy at home!

We have all been busy learning at home!

Hello Chestnuts,parents and carers!


Hope you are all safe and well! smiley


As the current lockdown continues you will see below that there are now 2 home learning grids for this week; the first one gives more of a structured format with ideas for the children's learning day by day in the areas of Communication and language; Letters and Sounds and Number work.

The second grid is the one you are normally used to seeing with lots of ideas and activities for you to enjoy based on the story and rhyme of the week. This week's story is The Very Hungry Caterpillar and every week i will post a new story and rhyme of the week for you to listen to and enjoy.

Please only do what you can and do not feel pressured to do everything; it's just a guide to suggested resources for your child.

Please upload any photos, and videos to Tapestry  or email us; We have really enjoyed seeing all your photos and the excellent things you are doing at home!


Well take care and stay safe everyone!

Happy home learning!

Hi Chestnuts!


Well here we are in Week 3 of being at home with your families; we do hope that you are staying well and safe and having lots of fun learning new and exciting things!


Please see below this week's home learning grid with a few suggestions of things to do leading up to Easter! I'm sure that the Easter Bunny will be out this week collecting ingredients ready to make his chocolate eggs ready to deliver on Easter day! smiley


Please note that the activities suggested are just a guide for you; please do not feel that you have to do them all or in a certain amount of time. They are there for you to do at your leisure and at your own pace.


Please upload any photos/videos of what you've been doing over the Easter period onto Tapestry or email us via Chestnut email.


Well stay safe and well and we do hope you all have a lovely Easter!
