Hello Beech Class!

I hope that you have had an enjoyable week! I have loved seeing some great written work and wonderful drawings of the farmers from our book so far this week.


We are now on to chapter 4! I would like you to read it with an adult at home and discuss these questions together:

  • How did the family react to Mr Fox losing his tail?
  • On page 16, what word tell us that Mrs Fox felt frightened when she heard the shovels?
  • How does Mr Fox react when the shovels burst through the ceiling?
  • Do you think that Mr Fox is Fantastic? Explain your thoughts.

I would like you to now write a diary as one of the small foxes. What was your day like? How did you feel at the start of the day when your father came home without his tail? How did your whole family react? What happened next? How did you feel when you were woken up by the sound of the shovels? What was your father's plan? Did it work? How did you feel when you could no longer hear the shovels?

I have shared the beginning of a diary as an example.

Dear Diary
This morning I was devastated to realise that my wonderful, brave father had lost his tail because of those terrible, revolting and cruel farmers. My mother was ever so concerned for him that she was sobbing her heart out. What a terrifying time for our family!

Enjoy your weekend. Missing you all!
