Take a look around our classroom.

The children can light a candle, choose a prayer to read and reflect upon the Advent season and how we can prepare for the celebrations.

This week, Hadid's 'Star of the Week' is Jorja for always learning her spellings, reading at home and just being an all round super star! Well done!

In history we have been learning about how Victorian schools were different from our own. We have learnt about the punishments children received for talking in class and the lessons they learnt in school. The children thought it would be a good idea to have separate lessons for girls and boys but didn't think it very fair that girls learnt sewing and cooking and the boys got to learn carpentry!

This week we are learning to add 2 and 3 digit numbers.
