Chestnut - Castanwydden

Maths Lesson

My name is Miss Hari Truman, the class teacher in Chestnut Class for Year 1 and 2 pupils.

My aim is to help the children in my class become active learners that  ask questions and problem solve in order to become independent thinkers. I have an excellent team of staff to support the children in their learning, and we all encourage the children to give 100% in all that they do in order to reach their full learning potential, whilst having a lot of fun!

Chestnut class has access to the outdoor environment. The children in Templeton School are lucky to have considerable outdoor space that includes a nature reserve, an outdoor classroom, an outdoor construction area along with a playing field and a large yard area. The children in Chestnut Class make full use of the outdoor areas. They are taught the importance of looking after our school environment and as a result the children care deeply about the nature and wildlife that live around our school. 

Forest School

Templeton is surrounded by beautiful fields and paths. Chestnut Class often go on Welly Wednesday’ walks. We look at the different trees and plants that grow through the seasons. The children love keeping a close eye on the badger sets and rabbit holes.

In Chestnut class we work hard, but we play hard too.

Our daily routine and timetable consists of:

  • Welcome Time/ Registration and ‘checking in’ (Amser Croeso/Cofrestru)
  • Visual Timetable (Amserlen)
  • Literacy/ Read, Write, Inc. (Amser Grwp Bach)
  • Play Time (Amser Chwarae)
  • Numeracy (Amser Mathemateg)
  • Lunchtime (Amser Cinio)
  • Welcome Time/ Registration and ‘checking in’ (Amser Croeso/Cofrestru)
  • Cross Curricular and topic work veering all areas of development in the Foundation Phase
  • Assembly (Amser Gwasanaeth)
  • Home Time (Amser Mynd Adre)

Our aim is to encourage good habits and we ask the children to read regularly at home, to learn their tables, to practise spellings and handwriting. Children have a learning log project to complete once every half term. This is an opportunity to extend in-school learning, and to work with parents at home to create a project which complements our termly topic.
