Welcome back Foxes 🦊
What a busy week. The foxes had a great World Book Day and enjoyed listening to new stories.
It was lovely to see the children in their costumes too. Here’s a few pictures from the day.
Week commencing 10th February.
A very busy week in Foxes 🦊. We have been interpreting graphs and charts in Maths and have thought of creative ways of sorting objects using Venn diagrams. In English, we entered a Young Writers competition; writing poetry about our favourite things. We used a diamanté style, thinking of suitable adjectives and verbs to make our writing exciting. On Wednesday, some of the Foxes went to Hucknall Academy to join in with a speed stacking competition. Everyone performed really well and Nick came back with a medal for being a great sport and a speedy stacker.
We have made Valentine biscuits in our cooking sessions and made cards ♥️ for those special people in our lives.
Happy half term holidays everyone!
Week commencing 27.1.20
This week we have been learning about money in maths and gases in science. We attempted to make carbon dioxide and looked at a chemical reaction using fizzy drinks. We also heard the story linked to the Chinese New Year and made up a short play, where each child (and staff) took on the part of one of the animals.😊🦊
Week commencing 13.1.20
Happy New Year! 🦊
The children have returned after the holiday full of enthusiasm and eager to learn about our new topic ‘The Blue Abyss.’ We have researched and wrote about our favourite sea creatures and located all the oceans of the world 🌍 using maps and a globe. We have started to think about what we can do to help protect the oceans. Many of the children have been thinking about how they can reduce their use of single use plastics.
In Maths, we have been adding and subtracting and learning new written methods.
A great start to 2020 🤩.
Week commencing 16.12.19.
Team Foxes 🦊 would like to wish all our families and friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 🎅🎄🥳 Have fun and enjoy the Christmas holidays. We look forward to seeing you all happy and refreshed ready for our first term of 2020.
The Foxes have had a fantastic two weeks learning about celebrations 🥳. We have been writing descriptive sentences using adjectives and our use of capital letters and full stops is improving everyday. In Science we have started to learn about sound and the journey of a sound wave through the ear. In cooking, we baked gingerbread people and made salt dough decorations in preparation for our up and coming Christmas celebrations. Last Monday, we visited St Thomas’s church in Kirkby, where we learned about the tradition of Christingle and what it represents to Christians.
Week commencing 18.11.19
We’ve had a very practical week in Foxes. We’ve been participating in active maths; measuring distances using rulers, metre sticks, tape measures and trundle wheels. We’ve estimated and weighed objects and measured liquids using measuring jugs and cylinders.
We’ve baked quiches in cooking, started to make wooden toys in DT and exercised and stretched our bodies in PE.
Week commencing 4.11.19
Welcome back to a new term. It’s going to be a busy time in Foxes class. 🦊 We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to. Our topic this term is Let’s Celebrate, which will take us all around the world; learning about different celebrations and cultures.
This week we have been learning about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. All the children wrote a short story about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. Their stories were brilliant and so well written. Super vocabulary and stunning sentences. Well done Foxes ⭐️We have made shelters at Forest Schools and made model fireworks in Art. We’ve also looked at how to keep safe around fires and fireworks and learned the firework code.🎆
Week commencing 7th October 2019
This week the foxes 🦊 took part in some activities related to National Mental Health Day. They looked at how film clips can help with understanding emotions and how we respond as individuals. They tried out some mindfulness techniques and went on a mindful walk around school. We focused on colours, sounds, movement and pattern. We finished our focus on the mind by watching the film ‘Inside Out.’🤩
Week commencing 23rd September
We’ve had a great week in foxes this week. In Maths we have been looking at the points of the
compass and following directions using maps. In English we have been listening to poems by the poet Michael Rosen. Our favourite poem is Chocolate Cake and we had great fun joining in with the yummy parts! In Cooking we made mini chocolate cakes and at Forest Schools we made things out of bamboo sticks. In Art we painted Autumn Trees and made models out of boxes. Nicholas made a very impressive Battleship.
