Fox Class

                            Fox Class                             

Hello and a big warm welcome to our class page!


Fox Class is our Year 1 Class.


Meet the Key Stage One Fox Class team:

Miss Gaul who teaches Monday to Wednesday

Mrs Burnett who teaches Thursday and Friday

Mrs Daw who helps and supports the children with their learning week day mornings


School Council: Kaycie and Tom

Awe and Wonder Council: Ivy and Alex

Reading Ambassadors: Olivia and Isaac 



Year 1 begins the children's journey into Key Stage One. We make this transition from Reception (EYFS) into Year 1 and the next stage in your child's learning easier by supporting them with lots of hands on learning through our inspiring and creative curriculum. 


In Fox Class we learn in a variety of ways, with a mixture of formal, practical and play based learning. Children take part in whole class, group and independent activities throughout the day.


We provide a safe and happy environment where pupils and teachers work together, share ideas and experiences and encourage one another to be the best that they can be!

 Land Ahoy!


We have so many fun and exciting activities planned for Foxes this year, with our new and inspiring topics!


Ahoy, Me Hearties!


This term on our pirate adventure we are sailing the five oceans and exploring the seven continents of the world in Geography. Finding out what it was really like to be a pirate and all about the infamous pirate, Blackbeard in History.

We will be testing materials in Science to see which is the best for making a pirate ship, singing sea shanties in Music and making a vehicle in DT.

In PSHE, we will be working on our Growth Mindset and in Computing creating our own Bee-Bot treasure maps as well as coding like a pirate!  


As a school we share the same values:


                      LOVE        KINDNESS        HONESTY        FORGIVENESS        PERSEVERANCE        RESPECT


Our value this term is PERSEVERANCE        



We are looking forward to a fantastic year of learning lots of new things, making friends and having fun! We will be sharing with you all the lovely things that happen in our Year 1 class so please keep visiting our class page throughout the year to find out what we are enjoying learning about.
