Fox Class



Welcome to Fox Class!  We are a mixed class of Year 2 & 3 pupils and Mrs Banks is our teacher.

Other adults that help us during the week are: Mrs Taber.

Our class is a positive and happy learning environment, where every child is encouraged to reach their full potential.  The National Curriculum is accessed through our creative topic approach to learning.

We all try to do our best by working hard, being kind to others and following the school Golden Rules.  House points and Star of the Week certificates are given to individuals, and collectively we work towards earning class stars that result in a class treat if all the stars are collected!

We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure their time in Fox Class is a positive one.  If you have a special skill, job or knowledge that you would like to share then we would love to learn from you!  Or if you would like to volunteer to listen to readers or help in some other way we would be delighted to have you working with us!  Please let us know.

Take a look at some of our activities & adventures this year.
