Fox Class Weekly Update 21/04/2023

Welcome to the last term of the school year!

Everyone has returned refreshed and ready for our new topic ‘Navigating Norfolk’.  It may be on our doorstep but we have been comparing the Norfolk Broads with the Lake District and discovering some of their features.  It has been interesting to find out facts about a place we live so close to.  This has been linked to our English reading books ‘Float’ and ‘Floodlands’.

Foxes started the week trying out some origami as they grappled to learn how to fold and crease paper into first a plane and then a boat.  This was highly amusing as they wrote instructions using explicit details, imperative verbs, adverbs and creative imagination.  We tried out each other’s instructions to check for clarity.  

In maths, we learned about decimals and how to divide by 10.  Children reasoned with problems to show their understanding.  

Year 6 have had a week of SATs practise but had a busy week of bikeability with some year 5 too.  There was also Judo for others and a new gymnastics session during PE.
