Foxes

Foxes class is a mixed year 1/2 class. The teacher is Miss Bale on a Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. On Tuesday the Foxes are taught by Mrs Anderson. The teaching assistants are Mrs Richardson and Mrs Attfield.

We are delighted to have everyone back, and wow! What a busy term we have had!

Term 1

English – a meeting tale of ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Foxes have been learning the story of ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’, and followed the Talk for Writing programme as we followed the different stages of writing: ‘imitating’ the story, ‘innovating’ the story by changing aspects and ‘invention’, where we created our own meeting tale!

Maths – In Maths we have been learning the importance of place value, and how we can use our knowledge to help work out number problems. We did lots of activities in maths – working practically before transferring this into our books.

Phonics – We have been doing lots of phonics: morning and afternoon sessions, and we have taken part in a variety of activities to get more practise!

Autumn Term 2

This term we have been  fantastic Foxes!

Maths

In maths we have been doing lots of work on place value, addition and subtraction! We did lots of measuring! Here are some pictures of us being busy Foxes in maths.

In english we have started a new unit on ‘non-fiction writing’. We are writing an information text all about hamsters! What better way to inspire us than to bring Bridget into school (Miss Bale’s hamster!). We watched her every day to see how she is living and to research facts about hamsters.

Elf Day 2020! There were lots of hilarious elves in our classroom!

Mischievous Elves!

Below are our expectations for the class returning to school in September 2020
