Fox Class

Welcome to Fox Class! 
 
 
Academic Year 2019-2020
 
Autumn Term 1
 
 
We have explored how to muffle sound. We worked in teams to make ear protectors and then evaluate what knowledge we learnt from the task. We learnt that the layers of material slow the vibrations down and muffle the sound. This helps to protect our ears from loud noises!
 

 

 
In Jigsaw we have been learning about how groups come together to make decisions.  As teams, we tried to make the tallest spaghetti tower that would hold a domino.  And it was a lot harder than we thought!
 
 

 

 
Gymnastics
We are exploring contrasting movements and dynamics. In groups, we have been rehearsing sequences using the apparatus to show high or low movements.

Sound Workshop

 

 

We had an amazing time exploring the Discovery Park and hands-on science activities. We discussed the sound activities and then had a fantastic 'Astounding Sound' workshop. We have come back to class and used this new knowledge to help in our science learning.

 

 

Fox Class have been making positivity mirrors.  Comments like 'I will brighten up someone's day', 'be a good friend', 'I am amazing' and 'smile and laugh today' remind us to treat ourselves and others with respect.
 
 
 
 
We are very lucky to have Mr Dove teach us our Monday PE lesson this year! This term we will be improving our football skills. We have started to look at different ways to dribble the ball.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Academic Year 2018-2019
Summer Term 2
 
As part of our RE learning about Hinduism, Fox Class took part in a special hour long session of yoga.  They learned lots of new poses and tried hard to connect their mind and body.  As you can see, we also had a lot of fun!

Terrific  Torans
 
Fox Class have been hard at work in RE.  Each child has designed and sewn part of a toran whilst learning about Hinduism.  A toran is hung over doorways when there is a special celebration or festival.  It may have the OM sign on it which is the symbol of Hinduism and every prayer is started with the OM chant to help people concentrate on the god they are praying to.  A toran also has marigolds on it as they are the most spiritual flower and we have included an elephant as we are learning about Ganesh, the elephant headed god.
Thank you Mrs Scott, Mrs Miller and Mrs Marshall and her marvellous sewing skills for helping to make the torans.  Well done Fox Class, you are sewing stars!
Watch the website for photographs of the completed torans.
 
 
 
 
 
In science, we are learning all about plants and the different function each part plays. We have carried out an investigation to see if water is transported up the stem and how long this takes.
 
 
 
 
 
Spring Term 2
 
 
We had a great day of orienteering with Alex (our instructor). We learnt all about maps and how to use them correctly. We then applied this new knowledge in our first Forest School session!
 
 
 
 
We have been learning how to draw portraits. We will be building up to drawing a self-portrait with shading and colour. 
 
 
 
 
Spring Term 1
 
 
Visit to Nutley Windmill
 
As part of our topic, we visited Nutley Windmill to find out more about this important part of our local history. Brian gave us a tour inside the mill and we also sketched it from the outside. We even got to grind our own flour!
