Welcome to Chestnut Class

In our Foundation class we learn through fun-filled, hands on activities and experiences.

Our themes for learning are decided in conjunction with the children and their interests. This  helps to inspire and develop enthusiasm for learning. We aim to create a caring and supportive classroom environment which stimulates our children to achieve their full potential.

Work in Foundation is never dull!! We can spend our Phonics sessions in the outdoor area chalking our letters on the playground. Numeracy sessions incorporate a variety of resources; which this term will include the falling Autumn leaves, acorns and conkers. We find out about minibeasts and ceatures in our garden area.

We often spend our time outside where we can investigate and explore; we love our brand new Mud Kitchen!!

Our children are always full of imaginative ideas which they are able to express in our creative areas using paints and different media as well as a whole range of dressing up outfits. Spidermen and beautiful princesses are regular visitors while our campsite is extremely popular and is booked up for the foreseeable future!

Below you will find our curriculum maps telling you what we are up to this term and what we will be doing for the whole year. Please take some time to find out what your child is up to in school and how you can help at home.
