Plastic Pirates Costume List


Term 5- has been full of fun and learning new things.

Spanish day 

We all had such fun celebrating Spanish/Mexican day! It was so lovely to see all of the children wearing the colours that represent those countries. It was a pleasure to welcome La Flamenquita into school and learn some traditional flamenco dancing! At lunchtime we enjoyed some delicious Mexican food! 

Plastic Pirates

The children have worked incredibly hard to learn and perform a play in such a short term. A special 'thank you' to all of their adults at home who have produced some incredible, innovative costumes and helped the children to learn their lines. We are so proud of them, as I am sure you all are too. 


Steve Antony 

We had a fantastic visit from the author and illustrator, Steve Antony. The children listened to the story 'Unplugged,' and were able to tell him all about the stories that they had written based on his book. Steve Antony then treated them to his new book, 'The Queens Hat,' just in time for our Jubilee celebrations. He then drew some of the illustrations for them which the children absolutely loved. Meeting a real live author can increase children's interest in books, help them understand how books are produced and boost the confidence of all our aspiring writers. 


Term 4 has been full of fun and learning new things.

The children had a great time learning Latin with some pupils from Hayesfield. The children have also been learning about forces and friction this term, which we put to the test by creating our own cars out of junk modelling and racing them outside! Well done to Toby for winning the car competition. The children have been using their fantastic language skills to create comics based on the story 'Unplugged' by Steve Anthony. We have also been using the IPads to collect data and put it into different types of charts.

Term 3 has been full of fun and learning new things.

We had a fantastic trip to We The Curious, the children really enjoyed their 3D experience in the Planetarium. The children have been working incredibly hard in Art and have produced some wonderful pictures inspired by David Hockney. The children have also been working really hard on creating their own stories which they have shared with Key Stage 1. 

Forces and Magnets 

We have been exploring forces and creating our own magnet games, which have been fantastic. The children have been using scientific language to explain what they have discovered.

We The Curious 

The children had a wonderful time exploring all of the amazing science activities at We the Curious in Bristol. We were able to blast off into space and explore some of the amazing planets and we flew further into space to look at the Milky Way Galaxy.


The children have been sharing their stories with Key Stage 1, they enjoyed reading their stories out loud and have made lots of new friends. All of Foxes have shown such kindness to the younger children and used their Emerald Powers to overcome their fears of speaking in public.

Term 1 

We have had a fantastic start to the year! 

You have already achieved so much- keep up the hard work! 

Here are some of the activities that we have been doing this term. 


We have been looking at teeth and the digestive system, the children have created lots of lovely art work to show how this process works. We have also been looking at food chains, we discussed in class what would happen to these food chains if some of the animals became extinct or their homes were destroyed. 


We have been looking at lots of lovely poems this term and the children have been working very hard to write their own and create some wonderful actions to go alongside their poems. They performed these to the whole class! 


We had lots of fun with clay, making pots with lids and seeing if they could hold any water some children added handles and had a great time designing them.
