Red Fox Class teamed up with Seal Class for an exciting PE lesson. Mrs Harrison changed the rules of the usual ‘Gather the Treasure Race’ and demonstrated how to use a ‘Wheelie Board’ instead of their legs. Lots of fun was had by all!
Children in Red Fox class designed and planned math board games which they then played with Wood Mouse Class. There were some amazing games which supported the smaller children with their understanding of maths. A very successful activity for both classes!
Our day at the zoo!
Children were learning to recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associated this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit.

Healthy Living Week
This week we have been learning how to keep our bodies and our minds, healthy.
Children planned, designed, made, ate and evaluated some extremely nutritious sandwiches. They thought about how to include as many food groups as possible, to ensure they made a healthy balanced sandwich.
Children have also had the opportunity to practise some activities that promote health and well being; such as yoga with Miss Hughes and exercise classes and exercise tips from Mrs Harrison.
The Ice Palace
Children created a freeze frame to portray a scene in winter time in the village when Starjik might be coming. Questions they asked: How might families be behaving? What might they be doing? How would parents protect their children? How would children feel?
Red Fox class have been learning drawing techniques for showing texture and tone on sketches. They practised these techniques then used them to draw their shoes. They were thoroughly engrossed in their sketches and the outcomes are amazing.
Children working together to solve maths problems.
Children wanted to find out what would happen to the sound if you changed the length of the ruler before you twang it. They concluded that the pitch was higher when the ruler was shorter.
Our Science Ambassador
Children used role play to understand sarcasm.
