Hello Foxes! 


Hope you had a good week! It was lovely to see you all in our Zoom meeting.

You have all really worked hard in Foxes this week - well done! 


I thought I would share some of your work on our class blog.



We have been reading the Iron Man by Ted Hughes in Guided Reading. Here is some work sent in

from Ava and Ellie-Marie.


In Science we have been learning about humans. We looked at how we change and learn as we grow older.




Thank you Ava and Reuben for sending in your work.  


TT Rockstars

Don't forget to log into TT Rockstars we have two battles in progress. One with Otters and another with Badgers. 




We would love to hear about any books you have been reading!

I am going reading a book written by Michael Morpurgo next week in our afternoon Zoom meetings. I wonder which one it will be? 


Have a lovely weekend - speak to you all on Monday.

This week we finished our poetry unit by writing a poem about the sun. We wrote two verses and used alliteration, repetition and similes. We enjoyed learning about the poet Valerie Bloom and analysing poems such as: Pirates, People Next Door, Granny Is and I asked the River. We learnt about the country where she grew up and studied Jamaican patois. Here are some extracts from our poetry journals.    



We have also been learning about money. We have been selecting money and making different amounts. Next week we are looking forward to shopping and finding the difference.

We finished writing our Water Cycle explanation text this week and published them onto water droplets. We really like how they turned out. We hope you do too?

After our trip to the Hartford Stream we wrote a recount about our trip.


Friday 13th November 2020


Today we visited Beaulieu Countryside Park as part of our rivers topic. We conducted a river study and measured the velocity of the river in different parts of the river's course. Our guide showed us the source of the stream and then we followed it downstream to The Treehouse where we ate our lunch. 

After lunch, we had a go at pond dipping. We were really excited to find lots of dragonfly larvae, pond woodlice and even some newts. Here are pictures. We walked quite a way today! 


Here is a picture of the source.






We also had a go on the wobbly bridge!! smiley It was a beautiful, sunny day ad we had such fun!

Look at how our beans have grown!


We concluded that the beans defintely needed water to grow. But, not too much as they either wouldn't shoot or became mouldy.

Hello we have been really enjoying planning and writing our alternative Fairy Tale stories this week.

We are looking forward to publishing them next week. 


In Science, we are looking at plants. We decided to find out how important it is for plants to have water to grow. We used runner beans seeds in our experiment.  We had a runner bean in a cup with no water, one with a paper towel and some water. The final one had a paper towel and lots of water.  

We are looking forward to recording the results.

Hello Foxes!


We had a great first week back at school! Thank you for sending in all your lovely fox pictures. 

We enjoyed reading your postcards about your holidays too. Here are a few Foxes on our art gallery wall.



We also enjoyed reading The Lion Inside and The Koala Who Could. We learnt about a tiny mice who found his roar and about Kevin the koala who decided to try something new when he didn't want to a first.            We really enjoyed reading Giraffe's Can't Dance - this gave us a chance to practise different moves in the style of various animals.


We made leaves to go on our tree. We thought about Turning Over A New leaf and wrote about something we would like to get better at. 

   Have a good weekend! From Mrs Percy xx smiley
