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!

 Enchanted Woodland


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


For our last term this year we are going to be taking a walk through an enchanted forest! Along the way we are going to be learning all about different plants and trees and even carrying out our own cress and bean investigations in Science. In Art we are going to be exploring different medias to create our own tree art work inspired by the artists David Hockney and Andy Goldsworthy. We will be looking at lots of stories with forests and woods within our English, Whole class reading and free reading. Combining Reading with Music we will be experimenting with different instruments to represent different characters and retell stories. 


In RE we will be learning about different places of worship and in Computing we are going to be exploring the keyboard, toolbar and adding and changing text.


We will also be doing lots of race practice in PE ahead of our Sports Day!   


As a school we share the same values:


                      LOVE        KINDNESS        HONESTY        FORGIVENESS        PERSEVERANCE        RESPECT
