Fox Hill Art Show 2015

Our first whole school exhibition this year was the “Fox Hill Art Show 2015” which we held in our new Main Hall.

The children this term have been learning about the Henri Rousseau painting “Tiger in a tropical storm” and have been able to create some amazing pieces of work. The children have practised their skills of critique in order to help themselves and their friends to improve their work and make it the  best it can be.

It was great to see so many families attend the art show – we hope you enjoyed it!

Here is a selection of the work that was on show:

Y6 Trip to Frankie and Benny’s

As a special treat for completing their Y6 National SATs and also as one of our Fox Hill Guarantees, all of the children had the chance to go to a restaurant for a special celebration meal. The children were fantastic and had a great time. We even had a call from the manager of the restaurant to compliment the children on their manners and behaviour! Well done Y6!

Y5 Breakfast Meeting

This week it was the Y5 breakfast meeting with Mr Revill. Elle, Demi, Usman, Rogan and Hannah all came along to share breakfast and discuss their views on school, their learning and more.

All of the children fed back that they loved the new school building. They commented that it is brighter, easier to find their way around and nice that they are close to the other classes.

When asked that could be even better, the children talked about having a new spiders web climbing frame on the playground. They also liked the idea of more animals around school and some additional things to play with.

All of the children were really positive about learning and said they had enjoyed learning about the Bermuda Triangle, the “Surprised tiger” painting and were enjoying their multiplication learning. In fact…their favourite subject overall was maths.

Thank you guys for a great breakfast meeting and all of your helpful comments and feedback.

Attendance Matters!

At Fox Hill Primary we work hard to make our attendance the best it can be. We have our friend OTIS the ostrich who reminds us of the importance of good attendance and we have lots of incentives and rewards. We now also get extra house points for being  at school on time every day!

Not being in school or arriving late does have a big impact on our learning. Some of our Year Six children wanted to share their thoughts and feelings about this and helped us to make our special film “Attendance Matters!” This was made using the fun software “Crazy Talk” and each of the children taking part picked out which animal they  would like to be! We hope you enjoy the film!

Key Stage 1 trips to the Botanical Gardens

This week our Key Stage 1 classes have been to visit the Botanical Gardens to help with their topic work.

Check out some of the fun had by looking at the Y1 and Y1/2 news blogs!

We also attended the EIS Points Network Games and bumped into Jessica Ennis-Hill! See the photographs on the Y1 blog. You can access these through the news section of the website or directly through these links:
