Fox Class Autumn 1 2020 Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Our children have really begun to settle into their new class and are coping extremely well with the COVID 19 safety measures, with hand  washing and social distancing ongoing musts. Our learning sessions are becoming more extended, as the children’s ability to relax and focus increases.  We are almost back up to full speed again already, while busily continuing to fill any learning gaps from the previous 6 months of the lock down period.  Well done, Foxes! We have uploaded this term's curriculum overview onto the bottom of our class page for your information, in addition to sending a copy home with your child/ren on a double-sided page containing both of these documents.

The school is in the process of adopting an online home learning platform and you will  very shortly be receiving details about how  to join and use the programme.  Until this new learning platform is in place, we are continuing with our existing  'offline' daily, home learning expectations:

  • 15-20 mins reading and text discussion with an adult, recorded in Reading Record Book
  • 15-20 mins number fact practice using TTRockstars
  • 15 mins spelling practice of the current two-week spelling pattern being taught in school. Spelling is taught in class on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the spelling pattern home learning is taken home on Fridays.

Reading Record Books

Our child/ren  have already brought home their new, 'updated' Reading Record Books . They are now packed with information and ways to help you support your child/ren with their reading:

  • One page for each school week with a section to note down any new vocabulary learnt
  • 50 recommended reads for Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5
  • Details about how to  go about supporting  reading in the home
  • An overview of  the development of reading skills in school
  • Questions to encourage reading and discussion when your child had chosen a book; before your child begins to resume reading a book and how to explore when your child has finished reading a book
  • An opportunity to list books read during the term on the back cover

These Reading Record Books are monitored weekly in class  and two children are chosen to be Reading Stars of the Week, as a result of demonstrating that they are reading regularly at home and at school and recording their reading activities. Please remember to  the record each time you read with your child/ren and include any comments for the class teacher.

We are really looking forward to enjoying  another busy and learning-packed term  - watch this space for updates!

Yours sincerely

Mrs Laurie and Mrs Burningham

Maths: - Folding Flowers 1 and 2

Folding Flowers 1

Below is a picture of an unfolded piece of paper. Can you work out what shape is made when it’s folded up using the crease pattern shown? (**See bottom of problem  for answer/example)

  • Can you make one of these shapes with a new piece of paper?
  • Now make several of the same shape from A4, A5 and A6 pieces of paper in two contrasting colours.

Challenge 1

  • Take a large and small shape made from your first colour and a medium shape made from your second colour.
  • Make a pattern from your shapes, by laying them on top of each other, that fits both of these rules:You must be able to see at least part of each shape.All three shapes must fit inside the perimeter (outline) of the largest shape.

Challenge 2

  • Use a new large, medium and small shape to recreate the same pattern but in opposite colours from Challenge 1.
  • Place these two patterns next to each other and continue to fold and add to your pattern until you’ve made a flower. 

Can you predict how many of your original Challenge 1 pattern you will need?

We would love to see photos of your flowers!

If you enjoyed these challenges, why not have a go at Folding Flowers 2?

** Answer: Kite


Thursday 9th July 2020

Suggested Activity:


Watch this amusing savannah story and tell someone what happened to get the events in the story clear in your mind.

Your task is  either:

To tell the story from a meerkat's point of view. Remember that stories are told in the past tense and that time conjunctions (next, when, then, later, suddenly) are used to place and link events in time.

Example: One day, under the searing heat of the African sun, my trusty band of courageous meerkats and I carried out our daily check of the precious fruit we had been guarding with pride for many months, while it grew and ripened.  Having checked all was well, we began our busy search for food. Meanwhile, a cunning vulture flapped down through the savannah heat waves and settled on the branch immediately above our prized treasure. This looked like trouble!


Create a commentary for the 'rugby' scene at the end of the film. Think about how commentaries contain the who, what, where, when and why to tell the viewer/audience exactly what is happening in the present tense.

Example: Slinky Joe, comes up  craftily on the left, hurling himself like a human cannon ball at the vulture’s fearful talons and wraps himself around the precious fruit. Brilliant footwork from the meerkat team!

Read the following poem by Roger McGough.  After you have read it, have a go at creating your own colour poem.  Then you may like to create a piece of art work to express your poem.  You art could show all the items you list, or a collection of all the colours you mentioned.

The Colour Collector


A stranger called this morning

Dressed all in black and grey

Put every colour into a bag

And carried them away


The goldenness of cornflakes,

The ivory of milk

The silverness of soup spoons,

The see-througness of silk


The greenness of tennis courts

When play has just begun

The orangeness of oranges

Glowing in the sun


The blueness of a dolphin

Nosing through the sea

The redness of the breast,

The yellowy blur of a bee


The creaminess of polar bears

Sliding on the floes

The little piggy pinkness

Of tiny tickly toes


The sky that smiled a rainbow

Now wears a leaden frown

Who’s sobbing in the circus tent?

Wizzo the monochrome clown


A stranger called this morning

He didn’t leave his name

We live now in the shadows

Life will never be the same

Personal Project - Study of a Major Artist

As part of your study, draw  sketches imitating the style of your chosen artist and create colour swatches of the tones and shades that they liked to use. For example: Paul Klee , the  Swiss graphic artist, started  out as an impressionist artist who favoured using black and while in his earlier works.  A visit to Tunisia brought about a huge change in his move to a wide range of colour and a development of the use of letters, numbers and rectangular shapes that resulted in the style he is now most recognised and remembered for.

Suggested Activity

Design a Giant - Have a look at the picture of the BFG from the film version of Roald Dahl's book The BFG.  Today you are going to design your own giant.  They could be kind or helpful, like the BFG.  Or they can have a more undesirable personality, you decide.  

Draw your giant making sure you colour them in.  

Then write one or two paragraphs to describe your giant to someone who has never seen them.  Remember to use the writing techniques we have looked at, such as similes and metaphors.  Use the senses to help structure your description.   Include information on their personality.  

To challenge yourself - think carefully about how you want to portray your giant.  Make sure you are using language that conveys this message.  Can you rewrite your paragraph using different choices of language to make your giant seem the exact opposite in personality and looks?

Read this description carefully.

a) Then draw the character that you think that the text might be describing. You might like to label your drawing with all the precise details that you have noticed from the description.

He wore a short coat and waistcoat of mouse-skin with a strip of snake-skin round his middle; moleskin breeches tied in below the knee, but no shoes or stockings…He carried a hunting knife in his belt, made of hammered iron, part of an old hinge which he had found in the stream.

b) Write a brief wider description or explanation about the character that you imagine from the text

  • Who do you think ‘he’ is?
  • Why?
  • Where might ‘he’ live?
  • Why?
  • What might ‘he’ live in and why?

Story starter!

Task Suggestion: Can you use this starter to write your own beginning to a thrilling story?

Just minutes before, everything had been completely normal. He had sat eating his breakfast at the kitchen table, as he did every day of his life.

It was only when he looked in the mirror that he realised something was wrong. For several seconds he had panicked, and a sick feeling grew in his stomach. His mouth felt dry and he started to sweat as he sprinted from room to room, trying in vain to find a reflection.

How could this have happened? Of all days, why did it have to be today? This was the most important day of his life. He had to find help…

The Invisible Man - Letter

  • Why is today the most important day of his life? What is supposed to be happening?
  • Who is ‘he’?
  • What has happened to him?
  • When did it happen?
  • What caused him to finally realise what happened?
  • How will he find help?
  • Why is he wearing gloves?
  • What will he do next?

Task Suggestion: Can you have a go at writing the content of the letter?

Sentence challenge!

Adverbs describe how something is done. They make a sentence more interesting and informative by adding detail to the verb. For example:

                The pen scribbled frantically across the page.

Task Suggestion: Can you add an adverb to the following sentences to add detail to the verb?

                1)The man dashed from room to room.

2)He wrote on the paper.

3)He stared into the mirror.

4)His heart pumped inside his chest.


Can you add an adverbial phrase or clause, demarcated appropriately with commas, to add more detail to your sentences?

               His mind racing wildly, the man dashed frantically from room to room.

               He wrote nervously on the paper, while he sought to calm the incessant shaking of his gloved hands.

Local History Investigation

All of May is the Local and Community History month across the UK! The Historical Association, which is a charity registered and incorporated by the Royal Charter, supports education, enjoyment and the learning of history. Their mission is to “inspire, enable and encourage” people across all walks of life to get involved with history, and the Local and Community history month is one of their ways to do it. During May 2020, the Historical Association wants everyone to research and read, share information and raise awareness about the history of their communities and local areas.

So, today your suggested activity is to try and carry out a history study or investigation. Perhaps you have an historical site or building near your home (such as Tylney Hall in the picture), or know of one that you would like to learn more about. Your parents/carers/family may also have links to an historical setting or local historical event that they can share with you.

Record your findings using any of these possible formats:

  • Recording – video and/or audio
  • Non-chronological report
  • Recount (of an historical event)
  • Information leaflet
  • Poster
  • Letter to a friend

We look forward to sharing what you find!

Suggested activity

Feelie Bag Fun

This activity requires at least 2 players and also works well with two teams. It is a fun way to practice your speaking and listening skills and is a good opportunity to recap and use precise, descriptive vocabulary. We have uploaded some shape vocabulary at the bottom of the class page to help you. Challenge yourself to use as many mathematical words as you can to earn bonus points! You could also challenge yourself to use precise adjectives, similes and metaphors if you want to  use this game to practise English vocabulary and your descriptive skills.

Resources needed to play the game

  • A small cloth bag that you cannot see through, such as an empty, drawstring shoe or P.E. bag.
  • Several small objects from around the home that have been gathered up secretly without being seen by the players

Purpose of the game

A ‘Describer’ describes an object by placing a hand inside the bag, using only the sense of touch, to answer questions from the ‘Questioners', such as:

  • Is the object 2-D or 3-D?
  • How many vertices does it have?
  • Is the object rough or smooth?

To earn a point for the team or themselves as an individual, Questioners have to work out what the object in the bag is based on the description given by the Describer. You can also earn bonus points for using a correct mathematical term or word or precise adjective etc.

The Describer must not say what the object is used for– if they know!


Tuesday 12th May 2020

Suggested Activity:

Have a go at the following problem.  You could find some coins to help you work this out.

Then have a go at solving Pascal's Triangle

Monday 11th May 2020

Suggested Activity:

Poetry Writing - write yourself an acrostic poem from the word 'Lockdown'.  Think about focusing on all the positive memories you have been making and all the things you have seen while on your walks or in your garden.

Don't forget to use interesting adjectives and similies and metaphors to make your poem more interesting. 

When you finish, why don't you write it up neatly and decorate it so you can keep it to help you remember this time.

Suggested Activities

Share memories about the 75th anniversay of VE Day 

Tomorrow, Friday 8th May,  our country is celebrating VE Day - Victory in Europe Day  - marking the end of the Second World War seventy-five years ago. We will not be posting any learning activities or blog on  VE Day because it is a national holiday.

However, a suggested activity for you today is to visit the link below sent to us by Rushmoor Borough Council. Explore some of the games and activities that are on offer, ranging from puzzles to online packs for learning about this time in our history and joining the celebrations from your home.

Some of you may be fortunate enough to have elderly relatives or have family friends who actually experienced the day. Why not get in contact (ask permission from an adult first) and learn about the day and that very special time at first hand?!

Keeping writing fit

Another suggested activity today is this useful link from the HIAS English Team for practising your gross and fine motor skills to keep writing fit. It contains several exercises that are  really fun to do and get those muscles moving! The activities involve the parts of your body that help you to have the correct posture and core strength in order to write comfortably and effectively  so it won't just be 20 minutes of finger wiggling! There are really useful moving images to show you how to complete the exercises too.  Why not try this instead of a Joe Wicks workout today?!




***Just a quick reminder that we will not be posting a daily blog or suggested daily activities this coming Friday 8th May. This bank holiday commemorates Victory in Europe Day, when our country celebrated the end of the Second World War***

Suggested activities

Stay Safe - JRSO

Mrs Joliffe and Mrs Baronne hope that you are enjoying your daily exercise  - especially with this lovely weather - and remembering the important Road Safety rules when you are out on the streets.  They asked us to remind you that when you are on your bikes, you must wear a helmet!

Your suggested activity for today is to write some rules, do’s and don'ts -  for example , do get off your bikes and walk when crossing a road, rather than stay on your bikes to cross.

Can you make some fun safe games up or role play for when you come back to school or to share?

We look forward to hearing  and sharing your ideas!

Last but not least,  please check out the Road Safety Update letter from school which was sent out to your parents. You will find some detailed information there about the competition stop animation and the Arility resource

Music To Our Ears – Revise and Recap!

The Hampshire Music Service have made two fantastic powerpoints as part of their ‘Stay  Calm and Make’ programme, called ‘Discovering the Musical Dimensions’. Our other suggested activity  for today is to view the slides that are packed with fun activities to revise and recap musical knowledge and understanding. Check out the virtual piano on for making your own music! We have uploaded both powerpoints onto the bottom of our class page.

Tuesday 5th May 2020

Suggested Activity:

Have a look at the following number sentences.  Use them to work out the final problem.

If you don't fancy making the paints you could use any ready mixed paints, or colouring pencils you have at home. 

Friday 1st May 2020

Suggested Activity:

Our whole-school value for this first half of the summer term is ‘Friendship’. Bearing this in mind, our suggested activity today is that you try and live/show this value in some way.

You could choose to make a poster about what this value means to you, or make some form of sculpture or model.

You could make contact with someone.  It might be that you write a letter to a friend or member of your family that you have not seen or heard from for a while, or perhaps send an email or make a  telephone call (make sure you have permission from an adult).

Have a look at the ‘Friendship Home School Values Sheet’ on the Religious Ethos section of the website too for some fun friendship activities.  Just a few suggestions of how you could shed a few rays of friendship sunshine today!



Thursday 30th April 2020

Suggested Activity:

Write out the ingredients for your favourite recipe. If you do not have a recipe to hand, use the sample recipe below.

  1. What if you had to make the recipe for twice as many people/servings ?
  2. What if you had to make the recipe for half the number of servings?
  3. What if there were a) 100 or b) 1000 servings needed? How much of each ingredient would you need in each instance?

Remember to record all your working out and to use number facts that you already know to help you solve these real-life maths problems. There is a multiplication square at the bottom of the class page to support you with this.

Sample recipe – Serves 10 people:

Victoria Sponge

  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200g softened butter
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Wednesday 29th April 2020

Suggested Activity

A little recap and practice using verbs and adverbs by writing 5 super sentences.

Verbs are doing, being, having and action words, such as:

          she slept

          he is happy

          he had six sheep

          she was waving

As you might have noticed, verbs can contain more than one word – was waving

Adverbs describe how, when, where and to what extent the doing, being, having and action is, has or will be taking place, for example:

  • she slept deeply;
  • he is curiously happy;
  • he fortunately had six sheep;
  • she was waving excitedly.

Adverbs are placed close to the verb they are describing.

Your suggested task today is to first gather your own word bank by listing between 5 and 10  of the verbs and between 5 and 10 of the adverbs from one paragraph or page from a book, magazine or newspaper that you are reading or have read.

Then, use at least 5 of the verbs and 5 of the adverbs to write 5 super sentences of your own.

Your sentences can be about anything you like. Silly sentences can be very amusing to read and can still contain high quality language and accurate punctuation. Example:

She grabbed frantically at the writhing spaghetti monster, that slithered silently over the smooth work-surface.

Share your sentences with an adult. You could also challenge yourself to edit and correct your spelling and punctuation independently, remembering to begin at the end of your sentences to check for spelling errors and look for those words that  'just do not look right’.

At the bottom of our class page, we have uploaded verb, adverb, noun and adjective mats to help you.


Tuesday 28th April

Suggested Activity

Master Chef!

Design a three course menu for your family to enjoy.  

You might want to research ideas for your menu.  You could use the CBBC Master Chef website:

Once you have decided what you are going to cook, design the presentation of each dish.  Draw your ideas and label. Then pick one of you dishes and write your own set of instructions.

You could then cook one or more of your dishes with an adult and serve it to your family one day. 

If you want to challenge yourself, ask a member of your family to pick two or three ingredients, that you have in the cupboards, that you have to use in your dish. 

Monday 27th April

Suggested Activity:

Nature Watch - You are going to survey the type and number of birds you see today then present your findings.

Step 1: Research the type of birds you might find in our back gardens or which you may see while on your walk.

Step 2: Create a table to help you record what type of birds you see and how many of them you see.  Think about the different types of table we have looked at in maths and science lessons eg. A tally chart.

Step 3: Set yourself a time limit for collecting your data then head out into your garden or out on your family walk and look out for birds.  Use your table to note down the types and numbers of birds you see.

Step 4: Present your data in a graph of your choice.  If you want to challenge yourself, write a short paragraph explaining why you used the type of graph you did and share this with your adult, would they have used a different type of chart? Why? Again, think about the types of graph we have looked at in maths and science lessons. eg. bar graphs, line graphs etc.

Friday 24th April 2020

Suggested Activity:

Make your own time capsule of memories during your time at home staying safe from the Corona virus.  We have also uploaded a printable version at the bottom of our class page that Mrs Miles kindly found for us. This may take you several days to do over the next few weeks and will be a lasting  souvenir of this unusual period in your life. So take your time and try not to rush it.

If you are making your own, you  might like to include:

  • Pictures or drawings of your friends, family and any pets
  • An 'all about me' page with details about your hobbies and interests
  • Interviews with your family including their thoughts and feelings about being in lock-down
  • A journal detailing what you have been doing during  your time at home
  • A letter from you and/or your family to whomever might find  your time capsule

If you do decide to bury or put  it somewhere safe, remember to make a note or map of where it is hidden!


Thursday 23rd April 2020.

Suggested Activity:

Create a report about St George's famous fight against a fierce dragon in order to save a maiden from certain death.  You might like do this in the form of a cartoon strip, newspaper report and/or poster. We have uploaded onto the bottom of our class page a newspaper template, a newspaper report checklist and a short powerpoint of facts about the story of St George and the dragon to help you.  You could use some of the time connectives and conjunctions from Monday 21st April' suggested task to place events from the story in time order.

Wednesday 1st April 2nd Update

A kind parent sent this prime number problem in that they thought the class might enjoy. We have uploaded the  solution at the bottom of the class page.

Wednesday 1st April Update

Thank you for all your email updates. It sounds like the great sunflower race is definitely on !  We can sense some keen competition in some households - you've got to be in it to win it.  It is said that singing also helps plants to grow...:).

Topic update - Hopefully you are working hard on your personal projects. Like on Monday's update, today's brain teaser might help you with this.

Maths update - Piet Mondrian the artist (1872-1944) is perhaps best known for his compositions using only vertical and horizontal lines at 90° angles, primary colours and sometimes greys or black against a white background.

Mondrian's painting  'Komposition' is an interesting exploration of simple fractions. You will find a copy at the bottom of the class page, together with a fraction wall.
Try investigating and exploring the maths in the picture by cutting out all of the pieces. Then perhaps look for:

  • Those that are ¼ of the red square;
  • Those that are half the yellow oblong;
  • Those that are 1/8 of the red square and so on.

As you do this, compare the fractions and find how many of the quarters/halves/eighths will make the whole, or a half and quarter as appropriate.  

  • Can you make your own picture in the style of Mondrian using other fraction denominators? 
  • What understanding of number facts/patterns will you need to use to do this?
  • Will it be possible to make a picture that is a mixture of different fraction denominators?
  • Can you explain and prove your thinking?

Brain teaser - 

If you could interview your favourite character from history,  such as Queen Victoria for example, which 10 questions would you ask and why?

Have fun and stay healthy!

Have a go!

TTrockstars  update - Only 44% of Fox Class have accessed your TTrockstars  account this week.  We can do better than that! I am looking forward to our active users reaching closer to 100% by the beginning of next week and your correct response times improving as a result of some much-needed practice :)

It has been very strange seeing several of you only from a distance walking, on your bikes or out for a run (very impressive!) in and around the village. It's good to know that you are still able to be active while keeping yourselves safe.  If you are unable to go outside, the PE teacher and body coach, Joe Wickes, is live streaming PE sessions for children every day. The link for yesterday's sessions is:

Remember to get permission from an adult before trying to use this link.

Wednesday 25th March Update

Half way through our first week with each day bringing new challenges. Our brain teaser for today:

 You can invite three book or nursery rhyme characters for tea.

Who would you choose and why?

As the weather is still being so kind to us, perhaps you may have the opportunity to complete some 'hoop' art outside. Make a small circle (approx 1m diameter) using  a hoop or skipping rope, or natural objects such as pebbles/stones and fallen twigs and sticks. Create a picture inside your shape using organic, natural objects - please do not pick flowers or leaves. Always check with an adult that the things you have collected are safe to use. Take a photo of your creation  or draw it to include in your Home Learning book.

Have fun and stay healthy!

Monday 23rd March Update

Day one of a very new way of learning for us all. Websites such as TTRockstars have been really struggling today to keep up with all you keen mathematicians that are getting to grips with your daily home learning routine. Well done! Your logins do work - just keep trying. Remember there are copies of all the home learning activities at the bottom of this class page, together with some very useful links to ELSA resources. We do hope you get the chance to spend some time out in the glorious sunshine today. If not, try this little brain teaser:

You find a message in a bottle. What does the message say?

Home Learning Update 19th March 2020

Children who were in school today have all received hard copies of their Home Learning for the next few weeks. Below, adults can find digital copies of the 2 letters sent home today and all the activity sheets that were included inside your child's Home Learning book. We wish you all the very best in these trying times and please keep checking the website and Parentmail for updates.


Spring Term Update 2020

Before the half term break, our children hugely enjoyed being visited by a host of tropical rain forest and savannah biome animals including a chameleon, a tarantula, a very cheeky meerkat and an impressive Burmese python , called Severus. We are continuing our topic theme of 'Equal and Opposite' and are now turning our thinking towards human geography in the rain forest. We will be considering human settlement and resources through the sustainable global development goals of good health & wellbeing (goal 3) , gender equality (goal 5) and reducing inequalities (goal 10).

Autumn Term Update 2019

 We have enjoyed  a very busy Autumn 1 half term and were extremely proud to present our learning last week in the Class 4 Assembly. Our children performed part of 'The Wind in The Willows' when Toad, Rat and Mole have a serious caravanning accident and read a  resulting powerful letter of complaint to the  Riverbank MP, Sir Ralph Rat, about the terrible incident. Pupils also explained through role play how the Grampian Mountains were formed and the impact of the Scottish landscape on the lives of the ancient Picts and Scots.  The class then showed their interesting attempts to draw in the style of Michelangelo, achieved by drawing on paper placed on the underside of their tables!  We then finished our performance by reciting an amusing French nonsense poem, ' Une araignee sur le plancher',  about a boot-knitting spider and her unusual friends. Well done, Class 4!

Next half term, in the run up to Christmas,  we are looking forward to learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. To bring this history topic  to an interesting and exciting conclusion, we are really pleased to announce that Class 4  and Class 3 will be taking part in  Anglo- Saxon workshops here in school on Friday 13th December.  This does coincide with the annual 'Christmas Jumper ' day. Fear not! Children in Class 4 and Class 3  will still be taking part in this and can wear their special Christmas sweaters with pride.  The day is not a 'dress up as an Anglo-Saxon day' and children are not expected to come to school dressed as Anglo-Saxons. 

Summer Term Update 2019

This  term we are looking forward to the summer and  beginning our learning about Stewardship as part of 'Working Together to protect God's World and to serve the Common Good'. We will also be exploring the rise and fall of great civilisations, such as the Ancient Greeks and linking this with our study of rivers and coasts. In English, our initial focus will be on how authors tell stories in poetry and our mathematics will be linked to our learning in Art involving pattern in its different forms. 

We are also looking forward to working with the Lowde Foundation  and Sign 2 Sing to promote sign language and  increase our skills as singers. Our learning and efforts will culminate in a live singing and signing performance  at 6:30pm on Saturday 6th July in Hazeley Bottom at the Heart of Gold Charity Ball.  We will be in contact in the first week of term with details about how you can support our children to take part in this fantastic musical opportunity.

Spring Term Update 2019

We have enjoyed 3 busy weeks now in Class 4 and our history learning about the Romans is well underway with the children soon to begin designing and assembling their Roman vehicles during our DT sessions. We are still planning our linked offsite trip and will be in contact shortly with details regarding the proposed venue and date for our visit.

The whole of KS2 enjoyed an amazing afternoon of music On Thursday 23rd January  with the Philharmonia orchestra  at the Anvil for 'Orchestra Unwrapped'. The performance was led by the composer of 'Leon And The Space Between', Mr Paul Rissman. He narrated the story and children sang with him conducting.  It was a fantastic opportunity that the children really enjoyed and one that will be remembered by many for a life time.
