An Act of Kindness – I thought this deserved a ‘SHOUT OUT’! A young thoughtful, kind and caring pupil in our class has taken it upon herself to raise money for the ‘Little Princess Trust’, and I couldn’t be PROUDER! Evita, donated her beautiful long hair to support and raise money to give Hair and Hope to children with cancer. Evita – YOU ARE AMAZING! Thank you!

Take a look at some of our projects!

On Wednesday, we joined over 10,000 children in a virtual school event with, Sarah Ann Juckes as she presented her moving and uplifting story, The Night Animals, which was Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month for January. As part of this 45-minute interactive schools event Sarah introduced Nora and the ghost animals from her uplifting story about finding help where you need it. Nora's mum has good days and bad days, but the bad days are getting worse. It's been just the two of them for always, and they don't need anyone else. When the rainbow-shimmering ghost animals Nora used to see when she was small start to reappear, she's convinced that they hold all the answers. Along with new friend Kwame, Nora follows a glittering ghostly fox, hare, raven and otter on the adventure of a lifetime, helping her to find the strength she needs to help her family. Sarah discussed the new book and lead a workshop on The Night Animals where pupils created their own ghost animals. We also had the chance to put questions to Sarah for this special event. The children were thrilled with this opportunity to meet another author, as they had met Luke Temple earlier on in the year.

Today in English, we had our debate/ argument on 'Are polar bears under threat'. The children were very persuasive using facts they had researched. Mrs Avison walked between the two groups - 'Conscience Alley' and listened carefully to the reasons for and against. Victory to those children arguing that polar bears are under threat due to climate change. Well done to all the children for demonstrating great maturity and respect.

In our English lessons this week, we have been looking at the difference between fact and opinion. We have been discussing why it is OK to have an opinion and that not everybody will have the same opinion as you. Today, we have been exploring the question ‘Are polar bears really under threat from climate change?’ During our lesson, we were split into two groups and had to think of reasons for or against global warming. The children have to persuade me (Mrs Millane), as I am unsure about how I feel about polar bears being under threat.

Welcome to the PiXL Reading for Pleasure Newsletter for Spring One. It seems like it was not that long ago that we were saying welcome back at the start of the academic year and we are already a full term through! We have a wealth of wonderful books to share with you, including some award winners that you may wish to share with your children, as well as key events for the half term.

Meet our new 'Class Dogs' - Toby, Kike and Rocky. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit and are looking forward to next week!

In Science, our new topic is 'SPACE'. Over the Christmas holidays, Evita created her very own Solar System...AMAZING!!

In English, we are learning about 'The Arctic'. The children showed great interest, so I promised to put a link which they could look at and meet their curiosities! /

In English, we have been reading Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo. We found it fascinating, discussing the setting during World War 2. We wanted to do our own research to create our own information posters. Take a look!

A BIG THANK YOU! Over the past couple of weeks, a pupil has been making preparations for her new additions to her family...CHICKENS! Today, we received freshly laid eggs, which I had for my lunch...delicious!

Congratulations to the members of our School Council, representing the Fabulous Fox Class!

Dog's Day Out - The School council would like your dog to come into our school. Last year we did this as a project and it was very successful.

Snipes Dale

As part of our Geography topic ‘Rivers’, we visited the beautiful Snipe Dales Country Park, situated between Horncastle and Spilsby. The children had a fantastic time, using nets to collect river creatures, measuring the temperature, depth and the velocity of the river. For this we used a range of equipment including ranging poles, a clinometer, tape measures and …dog biscuits!

We then located the source of the river which eventually flows into the River Steeping. The children looked at the features of the river, analysing and comparing different parts, developing a greater understanding about the effects of erosion.

In Art, we have been exploring  the work of Katsushika Hokusai. His most well-known series of work was called 'Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji'. One of the most popular pieces in this series was the famous print 'Under the Wave off Kanagawa', sometimes known as just 'The Great Wave'. 

He used interesting techniques to create some of his art, one of these known as 'Ukiyo-e', a Japanese style of art that involves making prints and paintings on blocks of wood. We created our own interpretation of 'The Great Wave', using cardboard, string and paint to make our own print blocks.  

In English, we have been researching about the author Michael Morpurgo. We  looked at a range of texts to gather our information and chose the relevant, most interesting information to support our own biographies.  

Super start to the term, with the children settling in beautifully.

Our tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

We hope you have all had a wonderful summer break and are ready for an exciting new year. Mrs Avison and I are looking forward to welcoming you back, so we can start our learning journey, full of curiosity, challenges and celebrations!


We feel that open lines of communication between the parent/ guardian, child and teacher are the key components to promoting a positive educational climate which is conducive to learning. If you wish to speak to myself, please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange a time, or if you wish, drop me an email:   


Looking forward to seeing you all, Mrs Millane
