Welcome to Fox's Class page
Welcome to the Fox Class Page where you can find out about all the amazing learning and fun activities that will be doing this year.
Don't forget to check our Facebook page and Class Dojo for daily updates on the children's work.
Throughout the year, Foxes will be taught by;
Mr Allsebrook - Tuesday morning
Mrs Costello - Tuesday afternoon
We are always very happy to talk to parents but if you need more than just a quick chat, please arrange a time to meet when the teachers are not busy with the children and they can give you their undivided attention.
This week (18.3.19) we have been writing our own Science Fiction narrative. Take a look at Jonathan's second page below!
We have learnt that coding is what makes computer software,apps and websites work! Behind every animation or activity we use on computers, there is a set of instructions which tell the computer what to do. We now know that just like any instructions,coding has to be clear and straightforward.
Here we are coding on the iPad's! Some of us even made our own interactive games by putting in a code.
World Book Day
On the 7th March 2019 we turned our classroom in to Starbooks. We read our favourite books and had juice and biscuits like we would in a real coffee shop. Miss Jackson, Mr Mason and some of our parents came in to hear us read! It was amazing!
Bible Studies Workshop
Fox and Badger class went to a Bible Studies workshop as part of our RE topic. We listened to some stories before taking part in 3 activities; Dressing up, food tasting and a quiz. It was so much fun!
Religious studies- Eid
In RE we've been learning about Eid. Eid is the festival at the end of Ramadan. Ramadan is the month of fasting when Muslims give up eating and drinking during the day.
We designed and created our own packaging and made coconut truffles which are a brilliant energy boosting treat eaten at Eid. It was lots of fun and they smelt really yummy in the kitchen!
STEM- Shape Investigation
In STEM we created our own shapes using bottle tops to investigate and learn about the wonderful world of geometry. We had to try and make a shape with as many sides as possible and discover how many different shapes we could make using right angles.
Here we are having lots of fun!
STEM- Rocket Mice
Here are some action shots from our fun STEM Friday rocket fox activity! We had so much fun seeing who's fox could leap the highest!
The science behind it: Fox class know that the bottle used as the rocket launcher was not really empty: there was air inside it. We knew that air is elastic (squashy), and discovered that when you compress it, it pushes back and the pressure inside increases. In the activity, we found that the sudden increase in air pressure inside the bottle pushes hard on the bottom of the rocket, sending it flying high into the air. There were also two other forces acting on the rocket: air resistance and gravity!
On Monday 10th December we learnt all about Christingle. Christingles are made up of different parts, each one being thereto remind us of something. It was really fun making our own. Here we are having lots of fun!
