Vixen Tor FS & Y1

Welcome to Vixen Tor Class.

We are a busy and creative class of Foundation and Year 1 children.




Staying Safe Online

With many children learning from home and using a range of devices, we wanted to raise the profile of online safety and to remind the children of some key messages and tips. We would be grateful if you could share and discuss the following film with your children:

Autumn 2020

Welcome to a brand new year in Vixen Tor. We are very excited to be back in class and eager to learn.

This term’s topic is Superheroes and you can find the topic web below.

Vixen Tor Class Topic Web Autumn 2020

See what we have been up to…

We picked blackberries from our grounds to bake into Blackberry crumble. We shared the results with our families.

We like to learn inside and outside.







We loved forest school day. Even the rain couldn’t put us off as we set up base under the oak tree.

We have loved completing our Rainbow Challenges!



We made Christmas decorations for the tree in the village, sharing our special Christmas wishes for our community.



New Parents with children starting in Foundation in September 2020 please find information in our starting school booklet.

starting school booklet 2020 LM
Home Learning 2020.                                              

On this page, we hope to give you lots of activities and learning to do at home.

As we move forward into our new term of Home Learning, we are going to be providing you with some daily activities. This will follow a similar structure to that of a school day. It is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are lots of other things going on at home. The daily packs will remain on the website so you can access them when you need to.

KS 1 – The pack includes a rainbow tracker that will carry over the week as it would in class. This provides extra little activities linked to the week’s learning and can be dipped into as and when you wish.

Please note: If your child is in the KS1 phonics group, they complete that activity and the Y2 spelling group will complete their activity. It is not intended for all to do both activities.

EYFS – Little and often remains the key.  During the day the children are used to lots of free ‘play’ time – we call it ‘choosing for learning’. Small world play, construction, singing, dancing, play dough, cooking, playing board games, chatting, drawing, making activities and being physically active are all valuable learning opportunities. Don’t underestimate the everyday activities that you do with your children.

We would love to see their efforts so please take a photo and email it to our class icloud account.

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.

Potato watch!

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

We hope to discover about dinosaurs and how we know about them. We will find out about Mary Anning and her findings.
