We have reached the end of another busy week Foxes!


This week saw us celebrate World Book Week. Our English lessons focused on our most recent guided reading book which was ‘Varjak Paw’ by SF Said, a story about an outcast cat who finds solace in his own powers when he ventures out into the big wide world. The children have really enjoyed this book and have worked hard this week, creating some fantastic poems, highlighting the contrast between Varjak’s home life compared to his life in the busy city. The children also created fictional adverts for Varjak’s very own Kung Fu classes! Next week we will be moving onto our next guided reading book… ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons!’


In Maths this week, the Year 3 children have continued to learn about fractions and they have been comparing and ordering non-unit fractions and learning about the relationship between measuring scales and fractions. The Year 4s have been working on partitioning mixed numbers and counting on from 1 with fractions. They also learnt how to place mixed numbers on a number line.


In Geography, we have been learning about the Glaciers in Iceland and how they have changed over the last 50 years. We studied some photographs to make our comparisons and concluded that Global Warming must have had an impact on the receding glaciers. No wonder Iceland has become one of the greenest countries in the world to try and prevent this from happening!

On World Book Day we took part in an online quiz that tested us on both our football knowledge and our knowledge of a variety of books.  No surprise that our football knowledge was rather good! Lots of super words were showcased through our World Book Day costumes, which included: tropical, inconspicuous, camouflage and engineer! (photos to come next week!) We also joined with the Seals class to share some stories together!


A huge thank you to all the parents who came to see me for parents evening this week! It was so lovely to see you all and I hope you enjoyed the opportunity to be able to look through the children’s learning! It is Science Week next week as well as Red Nose Day! The book fair will also be on site! Lots more fun to be had!


Have a lovely weekend!
