Fox class has had a fantastic start to the week. During their Forest School session on Monday, the children were very busy working as a team to hunt for different types of seeds. There was also some potion and cake making at the mud kitchen, den building and digging using brand new spades! The children really enjoy circle time during Forest School. They have an opportunity to talk about all the natural objects they have found and enjoy comparing their findings with their friends. We have also introduced our new theme which is Pirates! The children have been extremely excited and have been learning through play by carrying out the following activities;
- Using their fine motor skills to create telescopes
- Exploring with a variety of materials to create eye patches
- Doubling gold coins in Maths
- Using their gross motor skills to create ships and boats using the planks
- Writing and drawing about famous pirates!
We are very much looking forward to our Pirate Day next week!

This week in Fox class the children had so much fun at Forest School in the rain! Children were making potions and cooking in the mud kitchen. We spoke about different textures of mud and the language that we received from the children was brilliant. It is clear to see that Fox class can articulate their ideas so well and are always engaged in their learning.

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.
