Chestnut Homework Friday 7th October

Well done Chestnut Class for a very hardworking week. I have really enjoyed watching you performing and modernising Shakespeare’s lines  as well as acting out your Harvest Festival play.

Chestnut Class Homework Friday 7th October Due in on Wednesday 12th October


This week’s maths homework is two Mathletics tasks based on our decimals work we’ve been doing this week in class. If you have trouble accessing the internet at home, let me know and you can do the tasks at school.



Linked to our Shakespeare topic your homework is to find out the meanings of some of Shakespeare’s most common phrases that are still used today. Write the meanings on the sheet. Ask an adult or look up the phrases on the internet if you’re not sure what to write.

Please use at least four of your spelling words in sentences as well.

Have a lovely weekend!

Stackpole Thursday 28th January 2016

Hi Everyone,

We have had a fantastic final day. This morning the children have been busy clearing brambles as part of their conservation work for the John Muir Award. They had great fun pulling out massive roots and working well as a Kemble/Siddington team.

This afternoon we have been rock pooling on West Angle Beach. We found a variety of wildlife including 3 types of crab, Sea Stars and Cushion Stars, shrimps and Limpets.

For dinner tonight the children have enjoyed an excellent Chicken Curry and Rice and chocolate cake.

Everyone is getting excited for the much awaited trip to the shop and talent show.

Todays quotes from the children:

“I enjoyed picking up and exploring the hermit crab habitat” – Joe

“I most enjoyed pulling out massive roots and charging through brambles” – Louis
