Happy New Year everyone and welcome to Term 3 in Foxes Class. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break. It’s been lovely to see all the children back at school – they are really enjoying our new ‘South America’ topic. We were fortunate to have Amber Ward join us for a day of yoga last week – photos below.
Here is our new homework grid and curriculum letter. We will be holding a curriculum meeting on Monday 20th January at 3.10pm in the Foxes classroom – we hope to see you there.

The Pupil Governors have designed a Healthy Homework Grid for the Christmas break. Have a look here and see how many activities you can manage!

We have added some more activities to MyMaths for you to have a go at – multiplication and division.
We have had a fantastic few months in Foxes Class and we are really looking forward to lots more fun activities in 2020.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Mr Dean, Miss Finch and the Foxes team.
Wow! What a great job the children did in performing our 2019 nativity, ‘Prickly Hay’. The performance was a great success, and it was wonderful to see so many parents and carers in the audience. Thank you to everyone who was involved.
The Pupil Governors have been working with Mr Dean on ways to keep our minds and bodies healthy so we have had a number of exciting workshops recently. We were very lucky to have Tamsyn d’Arienzo come in to lead High Intensity Interval Training (HITT) classes across the school. As you can see, Foxes Class had a fantastic time! A big thank you to Tamsyn for taking the time to visit us.
We also had a visit from Claire Coleman, who worked with us to create a ‘Doodle Dance’ based on our current class text, ‘Man on the Moon: A Day in the Life of Bob’. Claire had spent a lot of time planning our dance workshop, so we are very grateful to her. Foxes Class loved getting messy and dancing at the same time!
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.
