Autumn 2 Class News

We have had such a busy half term in Foxes Class with so many amazing experiences.

We started the half term with a virtual geography experience where we wore a pair of head phones and explored the four countries of the United Kingdom. Our geography learning followed this with learning about South Wales.

In science, we have looked at forces and magnets and were astonished to find out that the earth has its own magnetic field. We magnetised a paperclip and popped it on a piece of cork in water and were amazed to see that it turned north. We checked this using a compass.

Also, we have visited the church to support our RE learning, been involved in celebrations for Armistice Day and worked closely with Shane from the Archie Project. We all enjoyed the ice-cream van visit to school too! 


Autumn 1 Class News

We have worked hard this half term and shown great passion for learning. We started the half term by writing own warning tales and have now become news reporters, learning how to create our own newspaper articles. 

We took part in a harvest workshop which taught us where lots of different foods come from. We were particularly interested in the process of making cheese. 

As scientists, we have been learning about different types of rocks and soils. We have completed a variety of experiments to see which type of rock would be the best for repaving the school path. 

We travelled back in time this half term, discovering all about the stone age to the iron age. We are very excited about our trip to the museum and cannot wait to see some historical artefacts from this period. 

Remote Learning

If your child is self-isolating because they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or they have tested positive for COVID-19, they can still access their learning from home, if they are well enough to do so. All remote learning will be emailed directly to you (it will no longer be uploaded on to the school website). 
We appreciate that some children may be feeling unwell, and will therefore not be able to continue with their learning at home.        
We hope you find your child's remote learning enjoyable and easy to follow. If you have any problems at all in accessing this learning, please do not hesitate to email your child’s class teacher; we are here to support and guide you. Please photograph and email your child's work to the class email address which  is:
