November 2021

Winter is coming!


November has yet again been a very busy month. We are in full swing with our Nativity rehearsals ready for the performances that are coming very soon.

Chester’s parents can come and watch on Monday 6th December at 2pm.


Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Chute.



In our English lessons we have been reading the story ‘The Ugly Five’ by Julia Donaldson which is all about a group of African animals who think they are ugly. We chose an animal from the story (spotted hyena) and completed some research about it and what they are like in real life. We then wrote non-chronological reports about the spotted hyenas. We use sub-headings to show what they look like, what they eat and what they do.



We have been completing lots of work in Maths this month. We have recapped adding and subtracting two 2-digit numbers and then moved on to crossing this boundary. This means having to carry a ten or borrow from the tens depending on whether you are adding or subtracting.



In RE we have been beginning to learn about the Nativity story and why it is important to Christians.

We have learnt about the word Incarnation and how it means that Jesus is God in the flesh and God on earth.

We will continue to complete more work on the importance of the Nativity for Christians over the next few weeks.



We have focused on History in our CCCS lessons this term.

During Remembrance week, we learnt about what life was like in the trenches during the First World War. We found out that it would get very muddy in them and because of that the soldiers would get very dirty and could get sick. We also discovered that the soldiers would build the trenches, sleep and eat in them and would spend a lot of time sitting around and waiting.




In our PESHR lessons, we thought about anti-bullying and how we can spread kindness to one another. We thought about what we should and should not do to make sure people are happy.




In addition, we have also dressed up for Children in Need and we sat in the dark to complete an activity to help us to understand the importance of saving electricity. We thought about different ways we can save the environment and created some posters.
