On this page, we hope to give you lots of activities and learning to do at home during the next week.
Each child will receive a pack filled with a variety of activities based on their year group. We have maths activities, writing ideas and reading tasks. All are meant to be dipped into, allowing your child to have opportunity to pick out activities that they would like to complete.
Phonics – http://www.phonicsplay.co.uk Use the username March20 and password home to be able to access the activities. This is something we use at school and is great for practising our Phonic knowledge. Foundation are working at Phase 2 and 3. KS1 Phonics – Phase 5 and Y2 Phase 6. The Reading Robot game is useful to practise reading real and pseudo words – it’s one of our favourites.
Writing prompts can be found at http://www.pobble365.com – great for discussion and promoting creativity in our writing.
Online reading books at http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page You can read books at your child’s reading level as an ebook. You do need to register but it’s free. Please note any reading into your child’s reading record book.

PE – Fancy a work out! Joe Wicks will be doing a virtual PE lesson each morning at 9am.

KS1 children have some rainbow tracker activities too. These activities are carried out in our continuous provision and so can be carried out in any order they like.
Don’t forget any fantastic work can be photographed and posted to our vixentor class icloud account. This will allow us to add the work to your child’s learning journey when we get back to normality!
I will add more information as we move forward so please keep posted.
Keep safe and healthy.

Get moving. We have joined a PE based activity website across the federation. It has lots of ideas for practical PE activities. You can log your activities and achieve goals. But please be aware of the social distancing limitations when selecting activities to carry out.
Last week, in class, we planted potato seeds in readiness for our topic on Plants next term. We put some into sacks and one into a plastic bottle so that we might see how the potato grows. We saw how the potato seed sent out shoots and started to grow lots of roots quickly.
This is our potato plant today.
I think we might have to put him into a larger bottle so we can continue to see how he grows. Watch this space as I will add in more photos of his growth.
Spring Term 2020
This term our topic is Dinosaurs.
We hope to discover about dinosaurs and how we know about them. We will find out about Mary Anning and her findings.
Autumn Term 2019
We have had a successful term in Vixen Tor.
Our Nativity play was well attended and the children performed beautifully in our production of Shine, Star, Shine.
