Castanwydden (Chestnut)

Welcome to Castanwydden 2021/22


We are a class of 29 awesome Year 6s. Our teachers are Mrs Prescott and Miss Dando.


Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.


Autumn Term 2021:

Our topic is 'Britain at War'. As part of this topic we will be learning about the start and end of both world wars, why men chose to fight, the role of women, the effect on children and the 'Make do and mend' approach.

In Maths we will be learning about whole numbers to 10 million and beyond and decimal numbers. We will be revising our 'Learn its' and making sure we can solve problems using the four rules of number.
