Dear Parents/Carers of Chestnut Class
It has been another amazing week of remote learning with Chestnut Class. This week, we have dived into the magical world of Leon and written the setting description of the Place Between, multiplied 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using a mix of informal and formal written methods, and created our very own circus tent using a range of materials. Keep up the good learning and I can’t wait to see more of your work uploaded on Class Dojo!
