Welcome to Foxes
The Fox Family is taught by the amazing Mrs Hill (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday), Marvellous Mrs McAdam (Thursday & Friday) and supported by the incredible Mrs Margrie (every day!).
Foxes spent the day celebrating Easter in a variety of different ways. The school day began with an Easter celebration assembly where our Easter themed artwork was on show.
We then made our Easter basket and put in our Easter nest cakes that we had fun making with our parent helper. Next we carried out some Easter themed investigations involving eggs.
Mrs Margrie had prepared an egg hunt for us with mathematical problems for us to solve before receiving our prize of a chocolate lolly. We all found this very 'eggciting'!. In the afternoon we were all very creative designing and making our colourful Easter cards.
We also got to take part in an Easter egg hunt organised by FOSS which was great fun!
The day was finished off with an Easter bonnet parade where we were able to show off our imaginative creations!
All in all, we all had an 'eggscellent' day!
We were so lucky to have Mrs Pascoe come to visit us as part of our 'Mountains' topic. Mrs Pascoe has had the amazing opportunity to walk to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. She showed us some incredible photographs of her ascent and explained the trials and tribulations of climbing such a high mountain and living above the clouds.
Thank you so much Mrs Pascoe, we were very jealous of your adventure.
Mr Robertson, an assistant curate, came into Fox Class to answer questions about Incarnation, God and The Trinity. The children came up with some amazing questions (which were a challenge for Mr Robertson to answer!) and we all felt we had learnt something new from his visit.
A big thank you to Mr Robertson for enlightening us today.
This term Fox class has been developing their OAA skills in one of their PE sessions. First, we did some team work activities so we understood what made a great team. Next we were given a team challenge called ‘Crossing the Swamp’. We had to get from one side of the hall to the other using only hoops. We were only allowed to stand in the hoops. If we stood outside of the hoops, we had to start again. After a team chat, we all figured out how to do this and eventually managed to get all of our teams across the swamp safely. In our next lesson, we learnt about the eight points of the compass and put these back together accurately. We then followed a set of compass directions around a grid in the school hall. At each cone we stopped at, we had to collect a number. When we completed the trail, we added up the numbers we had collected to see if we had done it correctly. By the end of the session and working with our partners, we all got to grips with following compass directions. We have also leant the OS map symbols for things such as buildings, a river, footpath, school and church. Next week, we are going to be doing some orienteering around the school grounds, which should be great fun! Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!
We started by looking at Modern Greece and what it is like today then took a time machine to travel back in time to Ancient Greece. We have been studying about Greek Hoplites (soldiers) and had a go at drawing our own, including all the features, such as a shield, sword, greaves (shin pads), cuirass (body armour), tunic and a helmet made from bronze and horse hair.
