Castanwydden (Chestnut)

Croeso i Dosbarth Castenwydden




We are a fantastic mix of Year 3 and Year 4 children and there are 

23 of us altogether. Our class teacher is Mr Allinson and we are lucky to have Mrs Khan and Mrs Pain come into our class once a week to help us with our learning.


Our context for learning this term is 'Mighty Mountains'. We will be finding out about mountains in the UK and around the world.  We will use our ICT skills to support our research. In Lower Key Stage 2 we will also have lessons with Mrs Dawe and Mrs Sandford.



Homework will be given out on a Friday and will need to be returned by the following Thursday. Children will have numeracy, literacy and reading homework. Please can an adult listen to their child read, even if it just for 5 minutes and then sign their home reading books.


We will be using Abacus and Bug Club at home and in school to help us with our numeracy and reading. All children have been giving their log-in details to use this  website at home. If you lose your log-in details and require another copy please ask.

Please find below links to ActiveLearn which we use for Bug Club and Abacus.


PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday this half term but it would be helpful if children could bring in our PE kits on a Monday and leave it in school all week. Also, please could you have a water bottle as its important to keep hydrated without missing too much of the lesson.


Snack costs £1.50 for the week and money is collected on a Monday morning in class.


Our class assembly for this term will be taking place on Friday 13th January, at 9am in the hall. The theme of our assembly will be 'Going for Goals' and we would love it if you joined us.smiley
