Welcome to Chatsworth House class
In our class there is the class teacher Mrs Jenkins and the teaching assistant Miss Pickup. We have a wonderful group of 25 children who all love learning!
Our class is named after Chatsworth House which is a stately home in Derbyshire, England, in the Derbyshire Dales and 9 miles west of Chesterfield. It has been owned by the Cavendish family since 1549.
This term our topic is called Outer Space! There will be lots of opportunities to learn across the curriculum with particular focus on Art and Design. We will have a go at exploring different marks and media to draw with. Our artist is Peter Thorpe who is famous for bright, colourful space paintings. We are going to replicate his abstract style of art work. We will also be having a go at recreating space sculptures in the style of Barbara Hepworth. There’s lots to look forward to this term!
We encourage children to take part in Topic based tasks which are varied for your child to choose a preferred area of learning. Please take a look at the mat attached below.
Here are some links to games and activities we will be using this term.
