Hello Chimpanzees!


You will find your learning on both Google Classrooms and on the closure tab. I have uploaded a weekly overview where you will find the outline of the week. I will upload the resources every day.  If you need the resources printed, please can you let us know by emailing the school If you need any resources printed, they will be ready to collect on Tuesday. We have tried to make sure that nothing needs printing for Monday. 


Please remember that on Wednesday you will be able to change your book. 


Please remember that we are here to help and support you.


We miss you all lots.

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall


Humpty Dumpty keeps falling off the wall. Chimpanzees were set the challenge of finding out the best material for a crash mat. We found out that felt was the best material as the egg bounced when it landed on the felt mat. 

Which material is best for a crash mat for Humpty Dumpty?


First week 

We have been very impressed with how Chimpanzees have been coming into class in the morning and working on their morning task. 

The class page has been updated with homework, meet the teacher and a curriculum and homework letter. Spellings will be going home on Friday 18th September.
