Family Survey Summer 2015

Thank you to all of our families who attended our “Meet the teacher” even on Wednesday 8th July. It was a great success and lovely to see so many people there. We hope you found it useful to meet your child’s new teacher and find out about their new year group, the expectations, curriculum and more!

Thank you also to everyone who took the time to complete our Family Survey on the Ipads. The results have been collated and I would like to thank you for your positive feedback and also the useful discussions I was able to have with you about what is good about Fox Hill and how we can make things even better.

For a break down of the results from the survey, please download the report here:

The Fox Hill Apprentice!

ApprenticeWelcome to the Fox Hill Apprentice! Our Y6 children have started their special transition project which they will undertake over the next two weeks. Teams have been put together and the children are being set a series of challenges linked to our whole school theme of “Myths and legends”. Teams will be competing to win as many points as possible – with their eyes on the end prize! Special prizes will also be awarded for the teams that show the highest standards of behaviour, showing the skills of a Fox Hill Learner and more! Who will win?

Amazing Y6 SATS results!

Massive congratulations to our Y6 children this year on their SATs results. All of the children worked incredibly hard and showed real commitment and dedication in preparing for these national tests. Their hard work has paid off with some amazing results for the children and overall results again being the best ever for Fox Hill Primary!

Well done to all of the children and the staff for their hard work and thank you to our families for all of your support in making this possible.

Y6 Well done

7/7 Victims remembered

Today in school we held a one minute silence as a mark of respect of the 10th anniversary of the London bombings which took place on July 7th 2005. Our thoughts go out to the families of the victims.

Early transition 2015

good-luck

Each year at Fox Hill Primary we run an early transition project. This is to help the children to get to know their new teachers and settle into life in their new classrooms before the long summer holiday. Research and experience has shown that this helps children to have a more settled start, reduces any worries they may have and ensures that classes get off to a flying start in their learning in September.

From Monday 6th July, children will be moving up to work with their new class teachers in their new classrooms. For the younger children in school, this will be a gradual move with their new teacher coming to work with them in their current classroom before the move.

Each year we select a whole school theme for the transition work. This year our theme is “Myths and legends” and the children will be learning all about different myths and legends. They will be undertaking drama and art work and having a go at re-telling and writing their own! Check out our Learning Resource Centre which already has a hidden dragon’s cave and a sword in the stone! Thank you to the children in helping to create this immersive learning space at the heart of our school.

We would like to wish all of the children good luck and every success as they make the exciting move up into their new classes.

Tunisia attack: Minute silence held for victims

Today across the UK a one minute silence was held at midday to remember the 38 people – including 30 Britons – killed in the Tunisia beach attack a week ago. As a mark of respect, we held this one minute silence with the children in Key Stage 1 and 2. Our thoughts are with the families of the victims.

Bike it!

Linked to our work last week in Healthy Week, this week we had a special assembly all about bike safety. In the assembly we were able to hear about how riding a bike can keep us fit but also how we need to keep ourselves safe when using our bikes. The special assembly is being followed by a special “Doctor Bike” session on 3rd July where you can sign up to bring your bike in to school and have a special bike engineer check your tyres, brakes and give your bike a health check free of charge!
