Horse Chestnut Class

Horse Chestnut Class has children in Years Three and Four.

We really enjoy having parents into the classroom in the mornings. If you are in school in the morning and are able to stay from 8.40 – 8.50, we would love to see you so that you can hear your child read and this gives you an opportunity to see what we are learning about at the moment

Working Walls

In Horse Chestnut Class we use working walls. We use these for Literacy, Numeracy and Science.  These are a record of our learning and we add to these daily so that we can build on our previous learning.

The Beach

We had the most amazing morning on Happisburgh beach. The sun shone and the sea was calm.  It really was an absolute pleasure to take the children and they all behaved impeccably.

We collected pebbles for our reflective area we are developing and spent time identifying types of rock, seaweed and pebbles.

All of the children were so excited and enthused about their new classroom environment for the morning. After collecting our pebbles and our science work, we had time to play on the beach. There were Jurassic lands, make believe shops, sculptures of the Nile and Ancient Egypt and construction of tunnels. There was even an art attack, a huge blue whale!!!!

It was a morning of fun, laughter and a huge amount of learning. I look forward to taking the children to the beach again soon. We will focus next time on art, Literacy or Numeracy while visiting the beach.
