Foxes

To my fantastic Foxes, 

 

It seems such a long time ago that we were all together, in our happy little classroom, but here we are at the end of what turned out to be a very strange year.  Little did we know, that at the end of March 2020, our 'normal lives' would change so drastically. It has been weird continuing to teach you all this time, without seeing your lovely smiling faces, hearing your laughter - and sharing your thoughts and ideas every day.

 

As we started the year together in September, we didn't know that all of this was just around the corner.  We were having an amazing time on our learning journey, finding out about life in Ancient Greece and writing brilliant mythical stories of monsters and heroes.  I am so proud of how you have all coped with the changes, how you embraced home learning - and I have enjoyed receiving your amazing work.  So many of you continued to show your enthusiasm for learning by working hard, every single day – even when it was so hot and sunny outside!  I am sure you have all missed school, missed your friends and the routine of the classroom - I have certainly missed all of you!  I am sure that you are very excited about coming back to school in September, and although I am sad that I will not be able to teach some of you again, I know that you will all be happy in your new classes and we have so much exciting learning planned for September.  I know your new teachers can’t wait to meet you! 

 

I am looking forward to seeing you all in September – and although you will not be in my class, I can’t wait to catch up with you, hear your news and see how much you have changed – I bet some of you have grown, considerably!  Thank you for being such a wonderful bunch of children, it was my pleasure, to be your teacher – even if we didn’t get to complete the year together.

 

Also, thank you to all you parents, grandparents, friends and family members that I have had the pleasure of working with this year, thank you for all your hard work in raising these wonderful children. 

 

Best wishes to you all and have a wonderful summer with your families. 

 

Take care, Ms Edwards smiley

Happy Easter from Holly!

Hi Zofia, I can't wait to read your finished story - you have planned it so well! I hope you have enough maths to keep you busy!

Wow Holly! You have been working hard. What amazing writing - I love your wooden fox so much - I have used it for our class page!

It's great to see your story Seth and your facts about Greece. Keep up the good work!

Hi Aidan, well done for writing your story and it's good to see you are keeping fit and active, whilst not at school!

Welcome to Fox Class

 

Hello and welcome to Fox Class!  Your children are continuing to work hard and are enjoying their experiences as Foxes at Knowle.  Your teachers are Ms Edwards, who teaches from Monday to Thursday and Mr Greenslade, who teaches on Fridays.  We also have help from our fabulous TA - Mrs Treloar - who supports your children on their learning journey.  

 

PE sessions

The children are enjoying their Wednesday PE sessions with Mr Blacker.  It's good to see them arriving in their PE tops - with such enthusiasm.  

 

Homework and Home Learning

It would be fantastic if you could hear your children read at home and encourage regular independent reading.  Children will also have weekly spellings to learn and times tables travels sheets to practise.  Foxes spellings will be set on Friday and then tested the following Friday.  They will bring home a spelling list every Friday to practise for their spelling test.

 

Keeping in touch

It's great being able to meet so many of you, as you drop off and collect your children.  You are always welcome to talk to us at the beginning or at the end of the school day, if you have any worries or concerns.

 

Spring Term 

This term the children will be learning about Ancient Greece.  We will be considering what Ancient Greece was like and finding out about the legacy that the the Ancient Greeks left behind.  We will discover how they dressed and what they believed in.  We will a also learn about the wars the Ancient Greeks might have been involved in. 

 

It would be great if your children could find out some information about Ancient Greece - or if you could encourage them to think of some searching questions to ask in our lessons.  More information about the topic can be found on our Topic Overview at the bottom of the page.

Foxes had a great time celebrating World Book Day! They enjoyed reading to the children in Butterflies class and wore some amazing costumes!

The children loved learning about the Stone Age. In DT we made axes and some of our foxes became fearless warriors!

Fox Class have been mammoth hunting during story-telling. They have imagined life as a stone-aged boy called Kroll. They are now ready to write their stories!

In history we collected stones to discover which made the most effective tools.
