Chestnut - Year 2


Welcome to Chestnut Class

Hello everybody!

It is so lovely to be back. We have had a great start to the term and are looking forward to another brilliant year together! Please enjoy the information below and we look forward to working with you and your children!


Author of the Term

This term our focus author is Lauren Child. 

We love reading and sharing her stories.

Have you read any of her books? Do you have a favourite book? 


In our book corner we have a range of Lauren Child books for the children to enjoy!

I Read... What is your Superpower?

Our Topic- Towers and Turrets

In our fabulous topic, 'Towers and Turrets', we get to explore historical castles and what they were used for, as well as finding out about great historical figures and their achievements. 

KS1 Homework

You will find a homework menu on DB Primary with themes under different subheadings: whole school themes, subject themes and topic themes.  Children are to complete one themed piece of homework each fortnight. This can all be uploaded on DB Primary. Your child can choose how they want to present their homework. It can be a piece of art, writing, a presentation - it's entirely up to them. 

KS1 children are also expected to read daily and practise their maths packs.

Have a go at Times Table Rockstars!
