The Foxes trip to the Farm!

This half term, our topic has been ‘Creatures Great and Small’, so what better place to visit than Cannon Hall Farm. We had a wonderful day, visiting all the amazing animals. We even had a ride on a tractor! Take a look at our video and see if you can spot any of the animals that we found!

The Foxes Get Busy In The Garden

The Foxes have really enjoyed being outside in the garden this week. We have carefully planted potatoes with Miss Greenwood. We can’t wait to see if they grow! 

Fact Finding with the Foxes

This week in Literacy, we have been learning all about fire-fighters past and present. We have been working in pairs on the iPads to research amazing facts about the fire service and how it has changed over the years.

The Foxes Grow Beans

This half term, the Foxes have been learning all about plants in Science. Last week, we planted beans and waited for them to grow! We have been keeping a bean diary to record their growth over time.


Year 1 Foxes’ Class Assembly 

The Foxes’ performance was out of this world! They shared their learning with a fantastic assembly filled with songs and facts all about space! Thank you to all the special visitors who supported the children, we were so proud of each and every one of them! 

The Foxes get cooking!

This week, we have been busy making pizza stars in the Year 1 Foxes. We rolled the dough, prepared the ingredients and popped them into the oven.
As we designed our pizzas, we carefully thought about where each ingredient had come from.


Our Year 1 Foxes enjoying their gymnastic lesson – some beautiful star jumps, bunny hops and brave climbing skills from our younger children.

The Three Little Pigs in the Log Cabin

All week, we have been learning about the story of The Three Little Pigs, so we decided to rehearse our story in our very own stick house. Don’t worry – the Big Bad Wolf didn’t blow it down!

Getting creative in ICT!

The Year 1 Foxes have been working hard in ICT to create E books inspired by story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have been learning to add captions and sound to our pages.

Christmas with the Foxes

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Foxes’ class! The children have been very busy decorating the classroom and making special gifts for home.


Film It Week!

The foxes have loved using iPads and a green screen this week to transport themselves to The North Pole. Take a look at some of our finished pictures!


The Foxes visit Bolsover Castle

Take a look at the photos from the Year 1 Foxes trip to Bolsover Castle. The children wanted to learn all about their new topic, Knights and Castles. They had so much fun exploring the castle rooms, walls and even the dungeons!

Foxes spotted on The Reading Bus

The Foxes loved having time to share stories on The Reading Bus. We looked carefully at the different types of books we could find and then chose our favourites to enjoy. 

Autumn Adventure 

The Foxes had a fantastic morning exploring the changes we can see in nature during the Autumn season. They used what they found to create a beautiful piece of art with labels too.

Junk modelling with the Year 1 Foxes 

The Foxes really enjoyed building junk models of their houses in Design Technology. We carefully planned our designs, and thought carefully about the colours and tools we needed for the job.
