Welcome to Chestnut Class. We are Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils taught by Miss  Iwona Litwiniec and supported by our fantastic TA’s Caroline, Diane, Katharina, Kyla and Vanessa (Fridays). We are a class of 10 pupils, eight boys and two girls.

We work really closely with our 10 children and tailor the teaching and learning experience to their abilities and interests, ensuring that they are really engaged and enjoying their time at school. We have a great outside playground and classroom that the children use every day for both teacher-led and child-initiated independent activities.

In Chestnut Class we believe in working hard, having fun and always trying our best.
