Good morning to the fantastic Foxes, how are we all today? I am enjoying feeling cooler at last as I thought I was going to melt in that heat last week!

 

 

I have been so pleased to receive some super work from Archie - he has really focused on improving his English and Maths skills and his work looks great! It has been lovely to welcome Reece and Morgan back into our bubble this week and we are having lots of fun in class.

 

Pearl found a little chick in her garden which had fallen from its nest. She put it safely in a box until its parents came. Well done Pearl (see the chick below)

 
 

That's all for now - have a terrific Tuesday and keep me posted on your progress.

 

Sending big hugs always,

Miss L :)x

Miss L's English Set

Romeo and Juliet

Hi to all,

In case you wanted to work on your Verona travel guide, here is the PowerPoint (in a PDF) we used in class. Useful as a guide! I will be looking for more Romeo and Juliet resources this week so keep checking your class page and keep reading and writing. Try keeping a journal/blog throughout this time as one day it may be a useful historical document. I've already started mine! Feel free to send me anything you do and I'll share!

Stay safe and keep smiling peep Miss L :)

Good morning lovely Foxes, how was your weekend? It was my birthday on Saturday and I was thoroughly spoilt with gorgeous food, delightful presents and music and singing. On Friday, the in-school Foxes sang 'Happy Birthday' and we each had a cake - I felt very, very lucky! 

 

PS Thanks to Rosie for my online birthday card!

 

 

 

 

2020 has been such a strange year - I will definitely remember this birthday forever...

 

Well done to all of you who took part in the ENDOWED VIRTUAL SPORTS DAY. We had a lot of fun in school but boy, was it hot! I've loved seeing your pictures so keep them coming in.

Wow! What an amazing Arctic Fox ‘Chill Out’ Exhibition

 

The children put together a thoughtful and innovative ‘Together & Wellbeing’ theme with children excitedly sitting with family members to share their exhibition experience.

 

The children kicked off the exhibition with a musical singing rendition of ‘Happy’ and then showcased their artistic talents of dance, artwork, pom pom and badge making demonstrations.  They also showed off their presentation and entrepreneurial skills and finally a chill out guide of meditation for the adults.

 

After, the children organised refreshments of tea, coffee and yummy homemade biscuits. It was a wonderful atmosphere where they chatted and presented family members with their current school work.

 

Thank you to everyone who came, we hope you enjoyed our ‘Chill Out’ Exhibition!

Lifecycle of Magical Beasts

A taste of Mexico

Thursday 24 January

 

As part of this terms Learning Unit Theme 'Harmonious Habitats & Mysterious Mayans' we decided to make some well known dishes that originated from the ancient Mayans, including guacamole, black bean, tomato and chili salsa and pineapple salsa accompanied with corn tortillas.     

 

"The Mayans invented many foods that are still eaten on a regular basis. They were the first civilization to make corn tortillas, and they used their avocado crops to make an ancient form of guacamole.  The four staple foods in Mayan cuisine were squash, beans, maize and chili peppers, and they were often combined with meat or seafood. Squash, beans, and maize are often referred to as the "three sisters" because they provide all the necessary nutrients when eaten together."
