FOX TERM 1
Welcome back to everyone after the long summer holidays. The children have settled back really quickly and have an exciting first term ahead of them. For details, please see our first newsletter below.
Miss Miller, Mrs Eades and Mrs Lange
We have been making models to show the different parts of our digestive system.
Warburton’s visited Fox Class to teach us about the history of their factory and healthy eating that includes bread. We all made a healthy sandwich!
For our Fabulous Finish we made sets of human teeth using our knowledge of the different types of teeth and their function.
Welcome to Term 2. Please see the newsletter below.
Welcome back and Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and the children are ready to do their best in Term 3. For information about this term, please see the newsletter below. We hope everyone will have a fun and productive term 3.
Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to Term 4. Please see our newsletter below with details of your child’s learning this term.
We hope you are all well and have had some time to look through your child’s homeworking pack. Please remember to log in to Google Classroom for further tasks and resources. There is now a shared Year 4 Classroom that will include daily lessons. Please contact school over the next 2 weeks if you have any queries. Remember to read regularly with your child (a class reader will soon be featured in Google Classroom. Below is a link that gives advice on maths learning for each year group which you may also find useful.
Miss Miller and Mrs Eades
If you are struggling to log on to Google Classroom please see the file below for step-by-step instructions. If you continue to have difficulties, please contact the school by email.
Unfortunately, there have been some problems with hacking issues and Mrs Russell our maths coordinator would like children to read her message below:
If you were the child who logged into someone else’s account and spent their money or changed their avatar or stats, then you should be as upset with yourself as the person’s who’s money you’ve spent. A good rockstar is an honest rockstar and that sort of behaviour is dishonest. You should promise to yourself to not do that again and say sorry to the other person who worked hard to earn that money.
We should all be being kind to each other during these difficult times. Mrs Russell.
I hope you are all keeping safe,
Miss Miller 30/3/20
I hope you are all well and the children are working through their home packs or accessing Google Classroom (or both). From 20th April, we will be using the Fox Classroom on Google rather than the shared Year 4 one. In addition, I will be posting work here on our class page for those who are finding it difficult to use/access Google Classroom. Below is a Covid 19 time capsule activity for the children to do over the holidays. If you cannot print it out, it can be done in their school book. Please can you pass this message on to anyone from the class that you are in contact with.
Miss Miller 3/4/20
I hope everyone is well and keeping safe. I have a few extra ideas from Miss Hurley-Gale and Miss Butchers that I’m sure the children will enjoy. Miss Hurley-Gale has set up a PE Classroom with fun activities; joining code rvslupu and Miss Butchers has found some fabulous music activities. The links below take you to these.

Good Morning Foxes,
I hope you are all well. Tomorrow I will post answers to the first 2 chapters of Fantastic Mr Fox so try and complete this part so you can mark it. Captain Tom is 100 today! I have attached some interesting reading about him. See if you can find out how much money he has raised, what he has raised it for, and what special events took place on his birthday.
Mrs Eades and I are missing you all very much so have a good day and stay safe.
Good Morning Foxes,
I am going to post the answers to chapters 1 and 2 of Fantastic Mr Fox later so if you haven’t done them yet, please try to read these chapters and answer the questions about them. The link to give you the complete text of Mr Fox is below.

You have to catch a fish and then answer the times table questions correctly to reel in your fish! Please could your grown-ups do a timed test with you at the end of the week and post the results on Google Classroom if possible.

Yesterday, my sister’s cat went missing. Simba is only 10 months old so the family were really worried. They searched for him and found that he had climbed onto a roof and couldn’t get down. Here are the pictures of the Fire Service rescuing him!
Hope you all have a great day.

Good afternoon Fox Class. I hope you are all well. Next week, I would like Group A and B to complete the Lockdown Interview. You could write your own answers or actually interview a friend or family member. Ask an adult to help you with spellings if you get stuck. You could even do this as a video like Molly if you prefer.
This week, I have included picture comprehensions for Group A and B to discuss with an adult or sibling or to record your answers. In addition, please start reading the wonderful books on MyON.
For art, you could make a Roman shield, mosaic or villa as shown further up the page. I hope you are putting together your Roman Britain projects; there is lots of information on BBC Bitesize to help (text and video).

Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.
“My child really enjoyed this Play and Stay and so did I as a parent. Nothing to improve – really pleased!”
Yr R Parent
Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.
