Fox Class News (Year 3 & 4)

24/05/24- Fox Class were very lucky today to be visited by a real life Vet, to help us with our topic of ‘Animals’ in Science. Gina the Vet talked to us about being a responsible pet owner, showed us some X-Rays to help us learn about skeleton structures and she brought some stethoscopes for us to try with each other! Gina even brought in a real life Guinea pig, to help us practice how to be responsible pet owners.

17/05/24- We have loved starting our topic of ‘money’ this week in Maths. We have been recognising coins, making amounts using different coins and finding change!

13/05/24- After reflecting on our Earth day assembly, we conducted some research on the parts of nature we noticed outside and found out why it is so important to protect! We made information leaflets aimed at KS1 and even got to go and present them to the classes. We used our presenting voices and made sure we were clear and informative. We hope our leaflets inspired KS1!

09/05/24- Loving our lunchtime activities in the sunshine!

12/02/24- As it is Shrove Tuesday this week, we have been thinking about temptation and what it means, as Jesus had to resist temptation in the desert!

08/02/24- We wanted to find out how far 1000m was, so we decided to get some meter rulers and go on an adventure! We found out that from our classroom to the hall, and around the hall in a square 4 times is 94m. This means 1000m is really far!

We think some of them look familiar!
