Superhero bubbling explosion 


Today chestnut class conducted another experiment to see a superhero bubbling explosion. We explored all the ingredients and made our prediction at what we thought would happen.  Once it was done, we then recorded our results. Most of us got it right AGAIN and we were pleased with ourselves. :)


When the police came to Chestnut class


Today we met some more 'real life superheroes', the police! Three police officers came into our class to tell us all about how hard they work to keep everyone safe. 

We had a fantastic morning; we got to try on all the uniform, play with the handcuffs and sit in the police van while the sirens went off! 

A superhero packed lunch! 


Oh no!!! You wouldn't believe what happened today. The hulk forgot his lunch!!!!! Good job we were around to help make him some sandwiches. We all practised our spreading skills and we were really careful using the knife to cut them. He was full up and ate ALL 9 SANDWICHES!!!!!!!

The explosion was so much, fun even if we did get covered in fizzy coke!

Swimming lessons


We are loving our swimming lessons in Chestnut Class. We start with blowing bubbles and kicking our legs and then we practise swimming on our front and our back. We then take it in turns to jump in, cheering all our friends when they make a big splash.


Once we have finished our lessons and if we have all listened (which we always do!) we get 10 minutes of free time at the end. We love getting all the floats out and playing superhero battles with our friends!

Chestnut class try climbing


We spent the morning in class exploring the safety equipment needed for the climbing wall. We enjoyed taking it in turns to wear a helmet and trying on the harness.


Once we had become comfortable with the equipment we were able to go into the sports hall. Each one of us got the opportunity to have a go, to experience what it felt like to be lifted off the ground and to climb as much as we wanted.

This allowed staff to assess our ability in order to create an individualised program for our own personal climbing journey at Millstead school.

Our families


We had a fantastic morning today talking all about our families. We spoke about our mums and dads and named all our brothers and sisters.

We then drew our houses and everyone that lives in them. It was lovely to learn about all our friends in our class J

11.12.19 - Continuous provision small city


In Chestnut class today the whole class transformed into a small city. We used sheets of paper to be able to continue our roads and roundabouts and made garages and schools out of cardboard boxes.


We had so much fun moving the cars about the roads and some of us even drew our houses and families. Tony and Liam even fixed the traffic jam!

We even did some paint printing using the car wheels..

Chestnut class vets is very busy today

05.11.19 - Bonfire night


In Chestnut Class we have been learning all about Bonfire night. We went into the immersive suite to watch an interactive firework display, wrapped up warm in our hats and gloves, had some hot chocolate and even got to hold a sparkler!


Don't worry everyone, we had two members of staff with us and we were really careful :)
