Key Information

Important Information for Chestnut Class ~ Spring 2019

School Times

Please arrive at school for 8.40am, this allows children enough time to complete their "Early Work."

School finishes at 3.20pm. 

During drop off and collection time, please wait on the main playground and not outside the classroom door, as this can cause congestion.


This term our P.E. days will be: 

  • Tuesday - swimming 
  • Friday - multi-sports

Please ensure children have their full P.E. kits (white t-shirts, blue shorts and trainers) in school on these days and for the duration of the week in case of any extra P.E. sessions. 


Homework will be handed out on a Friday and will then be due in the following Thursday (although children are encouraged to bring it in as soon as they have completed it.)  Children will have spelling, reading, times tables and handwriting homework every week.  They will also be set one homework based on our topic each half term. 

Spellings will be tested every Monday

Times Tables/Division Facts will be tested every Thursday.


It is imperative that children read 5 times at home during the week. Please can you ensure that the reading diary is signed each time they are heard read.  Children will receive a small "reading prize" if their reading diary has shown that they have read 5 times that week.

Break Time Snacks

Now the children are in Year 3, they do not get a fruit snack anymore at break time, so please could you send your child with a piece of fruit or a salad item or vegetables to eat at morning break (if they wish.)

Water Bottles

Please can your children bring in a named water bottle each day.


Children continue to choose their lunch on a daily basis from a range of healthy food options.  They may also bring a packed lunch from home if they prefer.  Children are required to pay for school lunches now that they are in Year 3.  Lunches cost £2.40 a day.  Please contact the office regarding this for up to date information.
