Chestnut Class is our Year 3 and 4 children


This term our topic is

 Smashing Saxons and
Vicious Vikings!


In our topic this term we will be placing Anglo Saxons and Vikings on a timeline, investigating  their settlements, culture, laws and justice systems, exploring the spread of Christianity. We will be looking at Viking raids and invasions and the resistance of Alfred the Great, look at the evidence that Bedford was once a Saxon town and understand how land use and trade links have changed over time.

PE is on a Monday and Wednesday


Homework is given out on a Monday  and is to be handed in on the following Monday.

Timetable Rockstars

The children have been introduced to the Timetable Rockstars and have their own log in. Please encourage your child to play 5 minutes a day on the garage game.
Please continue to practise times table and division facts up to 12, the expectation is that the children are fluent with these at the end of year four.

Children are expected to read daily.


First day isolation

If your child needs to self isolate then work will be placed on seesaw every night ready for your child to complete the next day. For their first day of isolation when there is no work on seesaw please use the ideas on this page for your child.
