Staverton C.E. Primary School
School Lane, Staverton, Trowbridge, Wiltshire,
Last term, famous rugby player, Tom Dunn came to visit Foxes class.
We had a fantastic afternoon and the children asked some great, thought provoking questions!
In fact, it was noted how brilliant class Foxes are
We learnt all about the player's fitness routine, the food that they eat and what it's like to play for Bath Rugby. We even had multiple volunteers when Tom suggested that the children try eating 6000 calories a day!!
This visit ties in perfectly with our next school trip, on Monday 5th June. Foxes will get a hands on experience of what it's really like to train and be part of a world famous team.
This term we will be answering the topic question, 'Why is Bath such a cool place to visit?'
This will be a Geography based topic and focuses on the beautiful city that's right on our doorstep!
I just wanted to say a massive well done and a big thank you to all the children and parents in Foxes Class. The Harry Potter trip was a HUGE success !
Foxes Class were super! They were so excited, so polite and so grateful.
Thank you for being the best!
See you Monday.
Welcome back Foxes, I hope you had a lovely half term.
You worked so so hard during Term 3, I am looking forward to seeing all of the fantastic work you are going to produce during Term 4.
We also have a super exciting trip ahead of us... it's nearly time for HARRY POTTER!
This term we are going to be continuing with our Topic question - 'Why Should the Rainforest be Important to us all?'
We also have a new Terrific Scientific experiment to be completing so I will tell you all about that, next week.
Please keep checking back to see what we are up too. I think Fynn and Amelia's video on Growth Mindset is a 'must watch' for all!
This term's topic is all about The Rainforest!
We will be answering the question...
'Why should The Rainforest be important to us all?
Terrific Scientific - Investigation One
Foxes had their tongues out ready for a taste-tastic experiment!
We tested to see whether we were Non-Tasters, Tasters or Super Tasters. We used blue food colouring to dye our taste buds and we used a magnifying glass to count the little pink bumps on our tongue. We had great fun and next week we will be taking part in a Live, nationwide lesson, where we will be able to share our results! Stay tuned for experiment number two!
We made bromeliads using origami. Bromeliads are flowering plants which grow in tropical climates. We then tried to answer the following question: What fraction of the original piece of paper is the triangle you have shaded in?

PE: A gentle reminder!
Please can you make sure your child has the correct PE kit in school. This includes a change of footwear into daps or trainers. Thank you.
Autumn Term Two
Welcome back! I hope you had a fantastic half term break and you're ready for Term Two. We have a super busy term ahead!
Foxes will be going home with a curriculum letter on the first day back and homework will also be set. Spare curriculum letters and homework can be found on this class page too.
We have parents evening on the 7th and 8th November. You will be able to sign up for meetings in due course. I look forward to seeing you all then.
11th November - this will be our first learning showcase. Again, I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible!
The question we will be exploring this term is 'Why should Gunpowder, Treason and Plot never be forgotten?'
Miss Kilbey (Monday to Thursday)
Mrs Ibison (Fridays) and Miss Cafferkey as Teaching Support
We have a busy and exciting term ahead! We have already started looking at our Topic, 'Who were the Early Lawmakers?' and we have learnt our Talk for Writing text, 'The Teacher Pleaser Machine'. For more information about our learning, please have a look at our Curriculum Letter.
On our class page you'll also be able to find copies of our homework grid and spellings. Any letters or important information will be added on here too.
Keep popping back to check what has been added and any questions, please feel free to ask.
We have been investigating this question as part of our science topic this term. We have learnt about the amazing transformation that some animals, such as frogs ad butterflies, go through. We all know that this transformation is called metamorphosis.
