Fathers Day

Fathers Day is Sunday the 21st of June. Here are some ideas for cards to make.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is by special request.  The cookies are really fun to make and sooooooo delicious - especially when they are still warm from the oven! I think you will really enjoy making (and eating!) them too.  If you'd like to share photos of your cookies or you making them click here. We'd love to see them!

With or without violins 

Heather (our violin teacher) has set up everyone in Fantastic Foxes with their very own Charanga account. 

This is a fantastic website with lots of different games and activities to practice your musical tempo and beats at home. You don't need to own a violin to access the great games on this website.

To get your own personal username and password to access the website please email where I will be able to give it you. 


A Spanish story from Y3 Miss Morecroft 'La Noche de los Piratas' I thought you might enjoy listening and reading!


Hello Foxes, Miss Travis here with some art for you to have a go at.  You'll need some paper, paints and brushes.  Have a look at the video first - it's a time lapse of my daughter completing one step by step.  You could do the same detail or choose something different. You could maybe look at the sunset outside to get some inspiration, or you could google 'silhouette art painting' for some ideas.  Trees work really well! Please share your work on this form. Enjoy!

Silhouette Sunset

LO: To use paint to produce a wash and then add detail
I can remember to -
For the background wash:
Add water to the paint
Use a thick/wide brush with long sweeping movement across the page
Test the colour out on some scrap paper first
For the detail
Leave the background to dry completely
Light sketch the outline with a pencil if necessary
Use black paint with a thin brush

Art and Maths! What a fantastic combination!

What you need:

Squared paper


Coloured crayons

What you need to do:

  1. On your squared paper. Draw a box around 4 small squares to make one big square.
  2. In each big square you can only write on number or symbol.
  3. Write out a number sentence.
  4. Then write another in the square below but move to the left.
  5. Do that 4 times.
  6. Then start a new line but move the square to the right.
  7. Once you’ve written the number sentence 7 times draw an outline around everything you’ve done.
  8. Finally, start colouring but the pattern needs to be consistent.

Scroll through the pictures below to look at the start of mine then use the final designs to spark ideas. Get creative as possible!!
