Find out what Cheetah class are learning this term...



As part of our learning in Cheetahs we have been reading Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl and the children are really enjoying the story so far.  Last week we made wanted posters and we will soon be writing a detailed character description of Mr Fox.  To enhance and support their learning the children will have the opportunity to watch the feature length animation of Fantastic Mr Fox.


The story follows Mr Fox and his efforts to feed his family whilst running from the horrible farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean.  Along the way we are introduced to lots of other characters such as Mrs Fox and old Badger.  Before long Mr Fox puts his old days behind him and does what good fathers do best: be responsible. 


Fantastic Mr Fox is a PG rated film and recommend for 7 year olds and upwards.  Please watch the offical trailer to the animation below.  If you have any further questions or do not wish your child to watch the film please contact/see Mrs Hodson.

Cheetahs class assembly was a huge success! 

First the class spoke about the importance of raising money for the British Heart Foundation and then some of children read poems.  Finally the children  had fun performing in a fashion show wearing the t-shirts they had designed to raise awareness of this important cause. 

The Cheetah class ran the stall selling cakes that everyone had donated - we had never seen so many cakes!  The whole school embraced the theme and wore red and in total we raised an amazing £284.48!!!

Well done Cheetahs and Hollywell!

Take a look at the photos below of some shots from our fashion show...
