Hatherleigh Community Primary School Caring about learning and learning to care


Welcome to Chestnuts Class!


Hello Chestnut families, 

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to get out and enjoy the sun!


One more week of home learning and then we will all be back together in school. We can't wait!

Please can you ensure your child has a pair of PE shoes in school everyday and some welly boots on a Wednesday. We will be getting out as much as we can.


This week we have a themed week on Fairtrade. Please can you send any photographs for the website to We will be rounding off the week by celebrating World Book Day on Friday...we hope you enjoy it.


We are still looking out for old photographs of Hatherleigh to support our topic of 'where we live'. If you have any we would love to see them. 

If your child painted a picture of their home last week please can they bring it into school next week as we are going to display them.


Can we remind you that Miss Tucker is in school teaching every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and Mrs Newby is teaching on a Thursday. Please bear with us on our teaching days as there may be a delay in us responding to your work or you may receive a response from a different staff member. 


The planning and resources will be available on the class webpage by 9:00am on a Monday morning.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us on class Dojo or on the class email if you need any support.

We hope you enjoy week 8 and the final week of home learning!

Dear Chestnuts,

We have reached our final few days together, let's make them amazing! 

Your learning for Monday and Tuesday is being planned by your new teachers, Mrs Jacob and Mrs Gibb. Please look at the Hawthorns section of the website for this. Wednesday is pirate day and there is a separate plan for this. Remember that you can dress up as a pirate for this day. Thursday is a day for finishing off and winding down ready for the summer.

We are incredibly proud of how you have all adjusted and coped with the challenges of the past few months. You are a fantastic class and we have loved teaching you. We hope you all have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you when you return in September as a Hawthorn!

Best wishes

Miss Tucker and Mrs Newby
