Fox Class have had a great start to the new year!

Last week we focused on our year group's artist; Vincent van Gogh. We looked closely at his painting The Starry Night and even recreated our own part of the painting using the same brush stroke technique he used.

In Design and Technology we designed, cut and assembled a wooden picture frame. In Maths we practised our measuring skills by using different equipment.

On Monday we went on a treasure hunt to retrieve clues for our new topic; We are Elizabethans.

This week year 2 have begun their Christmas countdown by learning a number of Christmas songs for the Christmas Fesrival and their Christmas assembly.

In literacy, the children have continued their planning for writting their own fairy tale by choosing their main characters and setting for their story. They have produced some beautiful descriptive pieces!

Next week we will begin our rehearsals for the Christingle assesmbly the following week. We would like all children to wear a Christmas hat of their choice for this assesmbly and would like to ask parents to bring in a hat with their child’s name on it by Friday 7th December please.

This week the children had a fantastic time, they were challenged to find the best day to plant sunflowers seeds in London and in Inverness. We looked at the weekly weather forecast for both cities and discussed what the weather symbols represented. Then the children worked in groups, they planned a weather report and made a video, where they were real weather correspondents.

On Tuesday we took part in learning some new dance moves, and we were joined by Jam Dance.

On Thursday the children had a challenge day! All of their results have been logged in their individual ‘Health and Fitness Passport’ that they will update in September to track how their fitness has improved.

Fox class had their first Summer Term Forest school session and loved seeing the changes in the environment.
