Books became doors to other Worlds...

Today we thoroughly enjoyed celebrating World Book Day in the Fox class. Our day was themed around the Author, David Walliams. The children had fun researching him and finding out all the amazing things he has done before becoming a successful children's author. The children also had lots of fun exploring his work, 'The Boy in the Dress' and the important lesson that it is great to be unique and that you can be anything you want to be, whilst understanding the importance of accepting people who are different. We also thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories with the children from the Nursery.


We were also lucky enough to have a parent join us to share a stories with some of the Foxes as well. The children loved be read to throughout the day from a range of adults.



Take Cover!

A storm is drawing close! The children are starting to panic! Where will we be safe?

Today's mission included designing and building a den using limited resources and natural materials. The groups worked fantastically together and all groups successfully created a den that was able to withstand Miss Anstey pouring down rain on their dens. 




Using their self and peer evaluating skills, they were able to discuss what worked well in their designs and what could be improved. 

Well done Foxes! Again you have made me very proud with your effort and teamwork today!

River Challenge

Outdoor Explorers Week has begun with the River Challenge. 

The mission presented to the children was to transport water from the river (the yellow bucket) to their base camps (plastic cups) using only containers they have made out of natural resources.



Team work, problem solving and resilience was shown by all groups as they completed the task and despite the poor weather conditions, the children persevered and never gave up!

Well done Foxes! We are all very proud of your efforts on the first mission.

Exciting X-rays!

In Science, the Foxes have been looking at humans and animals and their skeletons. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring x-rays of a human skeleton. They used their problem solving skills to deduct information and decide which bones they might be. They then used their reasoning skills to explain what part of the body the x-ray was from and why they thought that.



Food from Around the World

To begin our topic 'Around the World' the children were given the opportunity to use their senses to experience foods from different continents. Grapes, bread, watermelon, caramel, weetabix, potato omelette, broccoli and asparagus were shared between the tables. Using their senses, they explored the food through sight, smell, taste and texture to be able to describe the food. They also were then able to give their view points based on their likes and dislikes.
