I cannot believe that we are already one sixth of the way through the academic year but what a fantastic first half term it has been in Class 4! The children, Mrs Vaughan and I have all settled in to our new roles in Year 1/2 and we are having an amazing time!

This week started with us taking part in our whole-academy celebration of harvest where we got to perform KS1's alternative version of 'Chicken Licken'. Special mention must go to Grace and Lilly-Jo who represented our class in the lead acting roles of Swanny Wonny and Ducky Lucky - well done girls, you did an excellent job!! Back in class, we embraced the opportunity to link this experience to our English learning and wrote a recount of our Harvest Festival, including what we had done to prepare for the event.

In mathematics this week, we have been learning about fractions. We even got to solve another problem for Busy Bear who needed our help in halving ingredients in order to calculate how much 'Halloween Soup' he would need to send to his friend Zig up on Planet Zog. Here we are trying to find a solution, working practically then recording our findings:


As always, we also developed our learning of a variety of areas in the mathematics curriculum through our Maths Morning Meetings. Here is Kole after successfully completing a range of addition and subtraction number sentences:

On Wednesday, we had a very special treat during story time - Dilara undertook the challenge of reading Class 4 (and some of Class 3) a story, demonstrating the progress she has made in reading this half term. This was a brilliant achievement as it takes courage to sit in front of a whole class and read, especially when you're only in Year 1 - well done Dilara, you should be very proud of yourself!!

May I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy and restful half term holiday and thank you for support this half term. I look forward to working in partnership with you to extend your child's learning even further in the run up to Christmas!

Kind Regards,
Mr Wells
