Building Futures, Inspiring Success

Fox Class - EYFS


“Experts we have made it to the island and have been mapping the island and looking at what is around us. We all noted the dangerous volcano that has been bubbling away on the island. Well if you look and listen closely it seems as though it is about to erupt. What will we do now? How will we ensure the safety of all the experts and dinosaurs currently living on the island?”

Well Experts.....what are your thoughts? 

What a busy week in Class! This week we have been setting up camp on the mystery island. The hut building team have been busy providing us with somewhere safe to stay. We made maps to show the geographical features of the island and we decided it best to stay away from the volcanoes! During learning choices, the children worked together to photograph the dinosaurs and observe them in their natural habitat. Next week we will be observing an erupting volcano and decide how to keep ourselves and the dinosaurs safe from it!

Maths News

In Maths this week, we have been learning about 3D shapes. We have been learning their names and thinking about objects around us that are the same shape. We have enjoyed singing songs to help us remember too!Next week we will continue to learn names of more 3D shapes. We will continue exploring Mastery Maths again and asking...Shapes are all around us and they have a name. How many do you know?

Our phonic sounds this week were: ai, ee and igh. Next week we will be focusing on: oa, ar and or.

Every Monday morning is now handwriting in class. We will be writing the words that we have set for homework and practising the letter formation together. Every Friday morning is now a Big Writing session. We will be choosing a part of our topic that we have been exploring and writing a sentence together.


This week the children will be practising writing the words pain and high .The writing format has changed to be in line with the presentation in books in school. Please do not let your child form a letter incorrectly. Do ask them to rewrite a letter for more practise as this will ensure that mistakes are addressed quickly.

Also you can support by reading their books every night and practising their maths challenges. Please make sure that your children bring their challenge cards to school.
