Welcome to Chestnut Class


This term (Summer 2023), our enquiry project will be:

'What is the legacy of Ancient Greece?'

The Mediterranean civilisation of Ancient Greece comprised of a loose collection of culturally and linguistically related city-states and other territories. Most of these regions were officially unified only once in over 1200 years under Alexander the Great’s empire from 336 - 323 BC.

This ancient civilisation left a legacy that we still benefit from today. We will be exploring Greek mythology which has been used for best-selling books / films and naming astrological bodies along with the legacies of democracy, philosophy, architecture, theatre and sport (Olympics).


Below you will find our project planner with further details about this term's learning:

We have adopted a lion!

As part of our whole school fundraising, each class raised enough money to adopt an animal from the WWF. We chose a lion. Meet Simba - our cuddly version of the majestic, vulnerable wild one! [Did you know there are estimated to be only 23,000 lions left in the wild?]
