Class Update


The children have been learning about what life was like in the Victorian Times. We managed to borrow a box of objects from a Victorian kitchen and the children enjoyed suggesting what they might have been used for.

We then held our Victorian Cake Sale and thanks to your donations of some most delicious cakes, we had lots to sell. The children loved taking the money and helping the younger children decide what to buy. In the end we raised £ 117!

The children looked wonderful when they dressed up as Victorian children for the trip to Beaumanor Hall. We learnt so much about Victorian life during the day and loved playing with the hoops , cup and ball, fishing game and skipping ropes.

The school room was very authentic and we all decided we were glad we didn’t have to go to school in Victorian times!

As well as all our learning in topic, we have been learning to read and write a number of new phonemes and our sentence writing is really improving.

In Maths we have been learning to add and subtract numbers up to 20 and most of us now get all our numbers the right way round .

We’re looking forward to our Christmas Play and we are very busy practising and getting prepared.
