Foxes - Yr 2

  Welcome to Fox class!  

 

There are 25 fantastic foxes in Fox Class who are taught by Mrs Carlisle and supported by Mrs Parker and Mrs Bruce.

 

Have a look at our webpage to find out all about the exciting things we are learning! 

Wriggle and Crawl

Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt!

Sweep your nets in puddles and ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home.
On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl!

 

     

 

 

 

 

Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Let’s get messy! Muck and mess is good! In fact, it’s megamarvellous!

Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint.

Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods.
Don’t worry about the mess… it’ll always wash!

 

 

We had lots of fun with this topic - here are just a few of the things we got up to!

 

Mixing everyday materials with water - would they dissolve, sink or float?

We helped Harry Potter free his spiders and rats from blocks of ice

 

We used our reading and maths skills and followed a recipe to create our own potions.

Not only were they very tasty, but they actually worked!!

We used skittles and warm water to make a rainbow

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower...

Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground.

And finally… meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf!

No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!

 

 

Our visit to Lincoln Castle

Despite the freezing cold temperatures and the howling wind, Fox Class had a fantastic wow day at Lincoln Castle.

We took part in a Medieval banquet in the presence of King Harry, Queen Milly, Lord Aiden and Lady Alycia, with entertainment provided by jesters, musicians and dancers.

We also had a tour along the castle walls, tried on armour and learned how to fire arrows in order to attack a castle.

What an amazing time we had!

We would like to say a big thank you to our parent helpers - we hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

Well Done Foxes!

Our classroom foxes are making sure Eeyore feels very welcome!

Beat Band Boogie

Boom, boom, boom parrup, bah-dum TISH! Here comes the marching band! Left, right, left right… Atten-SHUN!
Step in time to the beat: 1,2,3,4, let’s make sounds, high and low!
That sound is loud! That one’s quiet… Shhhh, listen up! What can you hear? There are sounds all around. What’s making each one?
Then it’s time to perform... Oh, what a performance! Your audience loves you, so let’s take a bow!

 

 

How do string instruments make a sound?

Jamie, Kyan and Aiden brought their guitars to school to help us answer this question. 

We had lots of fun strumming and plucking the strings to find out how the sounds were made. We discovered that a sound is made when something moves or vibrates, and this movement sets up a sound wave in the surrounding air.

 

A sound on a string instrument is made when the string vibrates.

We found out that thinner strings make a high sound and thicker strings make a low sound. A short string will create a high sound and a long string will produce a low sound. 

 

 

 

Land Ahoy!

 

 

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr... me hearties, – it’s a sailor’s life for me!

Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world – just like Captain Cook.

Thar’s land ahead, me buckos! Let’s get t’ship t’port

 

Try out these pirate dances

Our favourite number song - now you can sing it at home, too!

Meet our furry visitors

Rocco's mum brought the most adorable baby rabbits to show us.

They scampered around the carpet and let us stroke them.

Please can we have one, Mum?
