Today we had a visit from a STEM Ambassador who told us lots of fascinating facts about space! We looked at space shuttle launches, the first trip to The Moon, the surface of Jupiter and what the future holds for space travel.
We worked in groups, using large maps to see what we could discover about the surface of The Moon.
We hope everyone had a restful half term and enjoyed the firework celebrations last night.
Our new topic is ‘Space Explorers’ and already this week we have been to the moon and back in English – we wrote recounts about our travels as moon tourists. We started the week by creating some fantastic space artworks.
We know how important READING FOR PLEASURE is, so we all snuggled down with a book this afternoon for some chilled reading time.
Wow – Term 1 has certainly flown by. What a great start to the year Foxes Class have had – so much great learning! We are very proud of the achievements everyone has made and we can’t wait to see what Term 2 brings.
Here are some photos of the amazing homework tasks the children have been doing:
Wishing you all a restful half term.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to join us for our open classroom. It was great to see so many faces and the children really enjoyed sharing their learning and doing some activities together. We are very proud of the work they have done this term!
Here are some of the activities that parents and carers did with their children – a family heART and a ‘We have a dream’ cloud.
Thank you to everyone who came along to the church today – it was great to see so many of you there. A big thanks to those parents who helped us with the walk! I thought the Foxes did really well with their performance – I was very proud of them.
We are really enjoying learning some new Makaton signs – they are useful for all of us as a communication aid. If you would like to take a look at home, we are learning a different sign each week:
Here are the videos we used to help us learn ‘1000 Years’:

The term has got off to a great start, and we are really looking forward to all of the wonderful activities we have planned for the children in Foxes Class. It was great fun to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday – everyone looked fantastic in their costumes.
This week, we started work on an art project with Owls Class, which we are hoping to exhibit in the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne as part of their Draw Me In exhibition which will feature work from schools all over Sussex. Watch this space for more details.
We are also very much looking forward to our science trip to Cumnor House on the 27th March and our trip to Bodiam Castle on 3rd April.
