Fox Class

Welcome to Fox Class 
 

Here is some useful information for Parents and Carers

It has been a wonderful start to Fox Class this year, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting back to a “normal” school routine and getting to know all of the children.

This half term we will be focusing on the book ‘The Wonder’ which looks at the creative imagination of a boy whose head is full of Wonder. We will also look at the natural and fictional wonders in the world exploring the four seasons and touching briefly on Superheroes.

PE: Monday and Thursday are our designated days for PE, which means your child can arrive and be in their PE kits for the whole day.

Reading: Book bags containing reading books will be sent home each day, and changed once a week. Please support your child as much as possible with their reading at home.  Please record when and what books you have read together in their reading records along with any comments on their reading. This will have the biggest impact on your child’s learning. We will also be reading at school so remember to send their books and reading records back in each day.

Important Reminders:

  • Can you make sure your child brings in a water bottle for the day and as per school rules make sure that it is only water in the bottle and not juice.
  • Can you make sure that your child’s name is in their jumpers so they don’t get mixed up or lost.
  • Children can bring in fruit for a healthy snack at break time.
  • We are always looking for parent helpers for any trips (when we are able to go on any) this year. Please let me know if you are interested or willing to help out. 

Any questions or queries about any information please email foxclass@lancastrian.org.uk

In Maths so far we have been focusing on place value and sequencing of numbers within 20. We have also looked at comparing two groups and being able to use greater than and less than symbols to describe which group is bigger.  
In our Topic lessons we have looked at the four seasons. We have particularly focused on Autumn where we have done our own leaf drawing as well as looking at the different types of weather. We even made our own Rain Gauge and Weather Vane to measure the rain and wind.   
We have moved on to exploring different materials and their properties. 
In Fox class we celebrated Diwali by making our own Diva lights and Rangoli rice patterns.  
As Diwali is the festival of light we also celebrate with some Marshmallows around the fire. We also created our very own firework paintings in the style of Jackson Pollock. 
In Maths this term we have been learning about different 2D and 3D shapes. We have look at the names of both 2D and 3D shapes as well as their properties. We also used different shapes to make our own pictures.
