Foxes Class

Week Beginning 27/11/2017

This week we have continued with our maths topic on measuring but we have been investigating capacity. We had to use measuring jugs to find out how much of each colour water we had.


In topic and art, we made some amazing sarcophagi out of clay and decorated them so that they were fit for a king! Or a pharaoh. 

Week Beginning 20/11/2017

It was another creative week in Foxes Class this week. We have been learning all about measuring length in maths. To help us with our learning we measured our feet and our arms and then we measured our jumping skills.


In science we recreated the digestion process and made our very own version of poo. It was great fun even if it was a bit disgusting!


The children have been hard with Mrs Lakin in Spanish over the last few weeks. They have made their own pinatas and this week they got to get some sweets out of them.

Week Beginning 13/11/2017

We have had a very creative week this week in the Foxes Class. 


In topic we were learning all out the mummification process used by the ancient Egyptians and what better way to help us learn that to wrap each other up as real life mummies! We also learnt about what the ancient Egyptian's used to eat and made some delicious date balls.


In science, we continued to learn about the human digestive system and used play doh as a tool to make a model.

It has been another super week in Foxes Classes this week. We have been comparing numbers using sweets and crocodiles! We have created some beautiful firework pictures and to top it all off some children got their insides out! This helped us with our science learning about the digestive system.
Week Beginning 30/10/2017

It has been a great first week back after the half term holiday for Foxes Class. We have jumped straight into out new topic on Ancient Egypt.


The children took part in an archaeological dig to find some Egyptian artifacts and then they all become professors and taught the other children about the artifact that they found. 


We had some very tricky words to learn like sarcophagus and Tutankhamun.

Week Beginning 16/10/2017

Wow! What a great end to the half-term we have had in the Foxes Class.


We had a lovely time taking part in a Hindu workshop on Monday where Chantelle enjoyed becoming an Indian princess. 


Tuesday was was our trip to Sherwood Forest which saw all of the children showing just how much they have developed in the area of orienteering this half-term. In the afternoon the children displayed super team work skills to build houses for the different animals that live in the forest and we even had a class photo in front of the famous Major Oak. A big well done to Billie-Jo on this day as she stayed with the class for her first full day! How fantastic. 


Enjoy your half-term break. 


Week Beginning 09/10/2017
This week we have been continuing our work on shape in the Foxes Class. The children had to work out whether shapes were 2D or 3D and they even had a go at sorting using Venn diagrams. There were some excellent discussions about each of the shapes and how they could be sorted.
Week Beginning 02/10/2017

Wow! The Foxes Class have been working so hard in their science lessons this half term. We have learned all about solids, liquids and gases. The children were great scientists when we were investigating how to melt chocolate and were fascinated when we investigate how water changes from a solid to a liquid, a liquid to a gas and back again. It was fantastic to hear the conversations that the children were having about what they could see.


On Friday we went to Morven Park to continue to develop our orienteering skills. The children had such a positive attitude and it was very impressed with their resilience particularly Lewis who had a break half way through but still managed to find all of the letters.

Week Beginning 25/09/2017
It has been another fantastic week in the Foxes Class. We have used our knowledge of different foods to design some healthy food plates and have loved sharing some non-fiction books with each other. It is lovely to see all of the children sharing so well and taking such an interest in our topic.
Week Beginning 18/09/2017
In the Foxes Class this week we have been enjoying the stories by Lynne Cherry. The children really enjoyed taking on the characters of the different animals in 'The Great Kapok Tree' and were eager to learn about the medicines of the forest in 'The Shaman's Apprentice'.
Week Beginning 11/09/2017

Hello and welcome to our Autumn term in Foxes Class.


We have had such a fantastic start to the year. The children have settled extremely well and are already showing me that they are very interested in our topic this half term which is 'Rainforests'.


The children really enjoyed trying lots of tropical fruits in cooking and have been showing me their amazing number skills.


Next week we are hoping to make some rainforest boxes so if you have got a spare shoe box at home, it would be wonderful if you could send it in. Thank you to those parents who have already done so.
