There is always plenty going on at Foxhill Primary School.
Celebrating the King's Coronation
We enjoyed a street party in the playground to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. We were lucky to have a visit from the King's representative, the Lord Lieutenant, David Pearson, to start proceedings! The children sung a special Coronation song and the National Anthem before giving three cheers to the King and enjoying a Big Picnic! The brass band played along for our special guests of Governors, community friends and former Teachers.
Birds of Prey Visit
Feathered friends in the form of a Kestrel, Barn owl, Little Owl and Tawny Owl came to visit us in Science week. We learnt about the features of the birds that help them survie in the wild, their habitats and diets. Brave volunteers put on the handler's glove to hold the birds! The whole School gathered for a flying demonstration to see the birds in action! We were delighted with the comical Little Owl, the Kestrel who flew a lap of the hall and the somewhat lazy Barn owl, who would only show off for his treat!
Jenny York, Author in School
What fun we had with Author, Jenny York! Younger children enjoyed very engaging workshops where they dressed as her book characters and retold the plots to peers.
Lucky children bought signed copies of her stories, That's Rubbish, Prince Charm-bin, Tinselpants and Nuts!, to enjoy at home!
A Wonderful World Book Day!
Once again, everyone raided dressing up boxes to celebrate World Book Day. Children (and staff) dressed up as favourite book characters. Children enjoyed creating 'a book in a box' and moving books in DT, with prizes for a child in each class. KS2 children visited the theatre to see Lenny Henry talk about his book and younger children enjoyed activities to promte a LOVE of reading!

Poet Matt Goodfellow visits Foxhill
What a super day we had with professional poet, Matt Goodfellow. After funny and interactive assemblies learning and performing some of his poems, Matt worked in Years 1 - 6 creating poetry with the children , using their ideas and introducing us to further ideas of rhythm, structure and intonation.
It was lovely to welcome Parents and Grandparents back into School to see our children's Harvest presentations. Thank you for all the donations sent, which will go to Queensbury food banks.
Arts Week 2022
What a successful Arts Week we had! Each class focussed on an artist and techniques from their curriculum. We framed the finished pieces and parents bought them at our Art Sale to help to raise money for Art and DT resources. Thank you so much for your support! We hope you've found a good spot for them at home!
Penalty Shootout 2022
A HUGE thank you for all the sponsor ship money raised by families to help us fund our new reading scheme.
We were amazed by the £3200 raised by your kind sponsorships for our penalty shoot out!
These children raised the most money in their classes.
But to all the children who got involved and the families who sponsored them, many many thanks!
