Our Furry Friends

The Foxes have welcomed some new friends into the classroom this week. We have had 5 very hungry caterpillars come and join us for this half term and they are happily eating plenty and growing extremely quickly, whilst being closely observed by all the children.

They have joined us to help the children develop their understanding of life cycles. They are completing regular observation logs and are thoroughly enjoying seeing the rapid changes in our little furry friends.  Watch this space! Further updates to come…

Food from around the World

Today the children had lots of fun tasting a variety of food from around the world. This included Greek Olives, Italian cured meats, Moroccan homous, French croissants, French pate and Indian poppadums and mango chutney.

 Food tasting

The children used their senses to describe the food they tried based on the taste, smell, texture and sight. They did very well trying some foods that were unfamiliar to them and were able to reason their likes and dislikes using their new vocabulary.

Amazing Love by the Foxes!

I could not be prouder!

The Foxes put on a fantastic performance as they portrayed the story of Jesus’ resurrection through song and dance. The children have worked extremely hard to create a performance that was clear with excellent intonation and have been practising very hard to ensure they knew the words to all the songs, which were sung beautifully.

The Foxes get creative with their homework!

Throughout this term, the children in the Fox class have been focusing on prehistoric dwellings for their homework. They were set the task to use only natural materials to create their own prehistoric house. They clearly have done their research and created some fantastic houses that could have come straight out of the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age.

Well done to all the children for the effort they have all put in and a massive thank you to all the Fox parents who have supported their children along the way.

DT designs taking shape!

This term the Foxes have looked at how clay pots would have been made and used in prehistoric times. They were also able to practise the skill of using clay during out educational visit to Flag Fen earlier on in the term. Now it was their turn! The children have used clay to coil their own pots based on their unique and creative designs. The children have put great consideration into how they were going to create them and have used a lot of hard work and patience to get their end product to look like their designs.
