Here you will find all of the termly homework and newsletters for Foxes class, as well as information about some of the exciting activities that we have been doing in school. Children will be given spelling every Friday and Maths homework will be uploaded to Seesaw on a weekly basis. We also ask parents to hear their children read at least 4 times a week, as we see the best progress in those children who read regularly at home with an adult.
Many thanks for your support in helping your child improve.

As part of our Topic learning this term, we have been practicing lots of D&T skills. First we designed a superhero making sure to make sure it was fast, had at least 4 wheels and had an extra special element to the car. Then the following week we had a go at building it. As you can see from the pictures we used saws to cut the wooden dowels to make axels for the cardboard wheels.
Finally we had a go at testing how far our vehicles would travel. We all measured the distance our vehicles travelled down a slope. We then evaluated how successful our vehicles were and thought about what we would do next time. 🙂
As part of our Science learning we have been testing out the strength of different materials. Last week we looked at a range of materials including metal, paper and wood to find the strongest.
This week we focussed in on paper and discussed how we could make paper stronger. We came up with several ways including layering several pieces of paper. Then our teacher showed us corrugated cardboard and we had a go at folding paper to make it stronger. This definitely worked and as you can see from the pictures it held far more than just a unfolded single piece of paper.
