Our Learning


In Chestnut class we desire for our children to be safe and happy, as well as being excited and challenged by their learning. We provide an environment where each child can strive to be the best they can be. The curriculum topics are organised and planned to enable pupils to demonstrate progression of skills built on from previous years, as well as allowing the opportunity to teach and learn new subject knowledge.

The topics that will be taught this year in Chestnut show a full coverage of the National Curriculum as well as providing learning opportunities that will capture the creativity and imagination of our children. It is through these topics we endeavour to Believe in God, ourselves and others. 

Our topic work this year begins in the Autumn with Victorians, and will be followed by Earth and Space, Magnificent Mountains, Save our Planet and Coastal Capers. Activities and trips are planned to inspire and enthuse the children and lead to creative writing opportunities. Our residential trip to the coast will be a highlight for the year, enabling the children to learn, explore, be immersed in exciting activities and build happy memories.
