Fox class have had another brilliant week. We have been learning about measuring weight, creating starfish biscuits and also reading our new book of the week 'A fish with a Wish'. This book has a big focus on how water pollution and how this affects marine life. The children were able to discuss their ideas and thoughts which was really wonderful to see. Mrs Finn taught the children about different kinds of seeds that could be found during our Forest School session. Fox class found many types of seeds and also created delicious mud potions!
Well done Fox Class!

Fox class has been on quite an adventure this week! We started off by having our first Forest School session on Monday afternoon with Mrs Finn. The children were very busy learning how to keep safe outside and were trying to spot any signs of danger in our outside area. Fox Class were able to articulate their thoughts and ideas on keeping safe outdoors. On Tuesday went to Bekonscot Villiage which the children thoroughly enjoyed. We learnt so much about the town of Beaconsfield, structures and towns. The miniture funfair was a personal favourite of ours! We even managed to see some tadpoles in the water! There was also a workshop that we attended during our trip. Some of the children got the chance to dress up in clothing from the past and we learnt so much about how people lived in the past. We have also had a busy week building our Aquarium role play area which the children are really excited about. The weather has been extremely hot so we all decided to dip our feet in the water trays in our outdoor area! A truly magical week at Fox Class.
