Welcome to our class
We're alert and adventurous, cool and keen. We explore, create, learn and succeed.

This week the Foxes class have enjoyed learning about the properties of solids, liquids and gases in Science. It was fun to pretend to be molecules in the lesson!
We have learned why the river Nile was so important in ancient Egyptian times, created a timeline of the major events in ancient Egyptian history and learned how to write our names in hierogyphics.
In Maths we have been practicing writing numbers in words and digits, and in English we have designed an outfit for Traction Man to wear on a new adventure.
Congratulations to our Mathematician and Writer of the week, Harvey and Ava, and to Isla who was invited to Weir's Weekly Review. Well done also to Bethany who was given the honour of being 'First into Lunch' for outstanding behaviour in the dining hall. Also a special mention to Thomas who was awarded a certificate by the Red Kites Vice Captain for being so helpful in the classroom, particularly at wet break.
Pupils visited the Library today and were able to take out books. Please ensure they bring them in every Friday to return or renew. Finally, we have finished our class book, The Worst Witch, so next week we will start our new novel, The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark.
