Chestnut and Willow

Chestnut and Willow bases are Year 1 classes with a strong emphasis on learning through practical play and exploring.


We are right by the Foundation Stage Unit and the Forest School.

After half term, we will be moving from plant life cycles and dragons, to animal life cycles and animal classifications. W


e will be identifying the features of different animals and comparing their similarities and differences.


If you happen to visit a zoo, farm or even a pet shop during half term, it would be great if you could talk about the animals that you see there! For example – fur, feathers, legs, hooves, claws.

Continue to practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. How high can you count?!


We are having a big push on reading in the Summer term. It would be fantastic if everyone could complete their Three Reads every week. Six reads a week will lead to a WOW sticker!

P.E is every Monday morning – please make

sure your child’s PE kit is in school.


Forest school 

Our last Forest School session will be on Wednesday 5th June. After this will be spending time on other days during the week, out and about, exploring our school animals.
