Chestnut (Year 3)

Home Learning Information


 Welcome back everyone! How was your half term? Did any of you do something different or go to a new place on your bicycles? Anybody camp out? Did you bump into any of your friends in the woods last week? I was in my garden trying to get rid of the weeds!  But we also managed to have a few BBQ's too! Have an enjoyable week .

Interesting fact for the day:

Otters sleep holding hands so that they do not float away from each other whilst sleeping.



Our Literacy topic  is a two week topic using information texts on nocturnal animals. This is going to be based around the story 'Owl Babies,' many of you may have read this story before.
