Today we talked about our whole school vision and thought about respect. This also gave us the chance to reflect on the learning we did about Remembrance day and the thoughts people had put on our special display.
This year to help us raise money for Children in Need, Miss Fletcher organised the first ever “Great Fox Hill Bake Off”. Children and families worked hard to make a variety of cakes, biscuits and bakes. These were judged by our special visitor, Pudsey Bear. A range of winners were selected including our overall winners Evan and Leo Frost.
We then sold all of the cakes in school and managed to raise over £500!
Look at all the cakes!
Thank you to everyone for the support.
Today we thought about all of the people affected by, injured or killed during conflicts and wars as part of Remembrance Day. We had a special assembly led by Roy Wilkinson from the British Legion who came in to tell us all about the special work that they do. Roy told us all about the sacrifices made, why poppies are important and how we can help the British Legion. We also learnt that this year is the centenary of the start of World War One.
Our school stood at the end of assembly to listen to “The last post” as a mark of respect. We then held a 2 minute silence at 11am to help us think about and pay our respects.
In Key Stage 1 this half term the Gruffalo has invaded our Key Stage 1 classrooms! To help the children learn about and write their own stories based on this popular story, classrooms have been transformed into woodlands complete with toadstools, trees and woodland animals. Check out the photos below!
This year we are promoting the important anti-bullying message through lots of work in our SEAL lessons and by dressing in our blue spots on Friday 14th November.
