Welcome to Fox Class with Mr Duley and Mrs Verrill.
Fox pupils have made an excellent start to term 1 and have begun the year by embracing the whole school topic of ‘Who I am’.
Pupils have described the intriguing and curious alien life-form, Dr Xarkle, using a variety of adjectives and a range of sentence starters. They have identified Verbs and Nouns within an Autumn poem and have been practicing their handwriting and spellings in class. In Maths, we have been developing our skills using Place Value using ones to ten thousands and even some decimal numbers.
Fox class have also explored the time-line of Prehistoric Britain, and they have drawn a stone-age family inside a cave. In RE, the pupils have learnt about the founder of Islam and created their first pieces of Islamic Art. The class impressed their teachers with their athleticism and team work playing bench-ball and made a great start to their series of swimming lessons.
This week, Mr Duley was particularly impressed with how the Fox class pupils worked in pairs and used a Dictionary to find the meanings to important keywords such as Reflective, Caring, Communicators and Open-Minded.
We are going to be continuing to discuss what makes us who we are, and we will be exploring what keeps our bodies healthy.

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.
