Thursday 2nd April 2020


Good Morning again Foxes, who is enjoying all of their tasks to do at home? I’m enjoying writing them for you each day and then seeing what you have done. You are all working so hard, well done to you and your amazing grown-ups who are doing a super job too. We have had some fabulous photos of your work so far this week. I have seen some very good gardeners, fantastic animals, especially the giraffe, sheep and bear and some very interesting book reviews. I can’t wait to see the patterns that the worms make in the coloured sand too!

Did you know that it is International Book Day today to celebrate Hans Christian Anderson’s birthday? He wrote the story of The Ugly Duckling that we read earlier this term. Our English task today is all about the story.

Today we are going to be thinking about different types of words are and what they are used for again but today we are going to think about adjectives. Remember they are the words we use to describe things, so in this sentence;


The Fantastic Foxes are caring, considerate and thoughtful.

Collective Worship

Our collective worship value for today is RESPECT. Jesus used to show respect to everyone. Can you think of the different people we need to show respect to and why?



I think you are all 2D shape experts now, so we can think about 3D shapes today. What can you see around you in your house that is made up of the 3D shapes that we know? Have you got a cylinder with paper in it in your bathroom? Or a cube shaped object in one of your board games? What 3D shapes can you find around your house, draw and labels them in your red books.


Have you got enough people in your house to have a mini game of Duck, Duck, Goose? If you haven’t try going outside to sing ‘Five Little Ducks’ and use your garden to swim around in!



Can you remember the story of ‘The Ugly Duckling’? If you can’t remember it all find one to watch, we saw lots of different ones in class. Now you have remembered the story I would like you to pretend that you are The Ugly Duckling’s brother or sister and write a letter to him saying how sorry you are. What could you out in the letter that would fill his bucket for the rest of the day?



Did you complete all of the Olymipc events yesterday? Carry on today and see who will win the medals this time! Make sure you help to tidy away after you have eaten first!
