January 2022

January is here!


Christmas may have come and gone but it’s the start of a brand new year. 2022 is going to busy but will be lots of fun!

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Chute :)



In English, we have been reading ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl. We have really enjoyed learning about the tricks the two of them do on each other. We used the tricks in the chapters to help us to write recounts using the past tense. We also learnt about how to use words that contain suffixes (like -ment, -ly, -ness) and conjunctions (like and, but, because) to join our sentences and make our writing more interesting. We then came up with our own trick that Mrs Twit could play on Mr Twit as payback for the balloon trick he had played on her.



We have been using our multiplication knowledge to help us to solve division problems and find all of the division facts. We have focused on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables to help us with this as we know it will help us to get faster at our Speed Tests too!

We have been looking at 3d shapes too. We recapped our learning of 2d shapes first and then looked at the different 3d shapes.



During our Setting the Scene butterfly ‘I Know Who I Am’ in the first week after Christmas, we looked at how we are all different.

We drew and painted self-portraits of ourselves.

Here are some photographs of us completing our drawings and paintings:


Here is a photograph of some of the work we have completed that we made a display of:


In our class butterfly, ‘We Are United (Kingdom)’, we have started to learn about the United Kingdom and the countries that are part of it.

We looked at maps of the United Kingdom and labelled England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as the names of the seas that surround us.



In RE, we have been looking at the next section of ‘The Big Story’ of the Bible. This section is all about the Good News that Christians believe Jesus brought to the world.



We are learning about plants this half term. We have been really lucky and have been able to plant our own broad bean seeds in a bag and we are observing them over the term to see what happens to them. So far, our plants have grown roots and some have also grown some stems. We are excited to see what else happens to them.
