Foxes

Welcome to Fantastic Foxes!

 

                                                                                                                          

This year the Foxes are being taught by Miss Miller (Class Teacher). Miss Thomas is our fantastic Teaching Assistant and she is in class with us everyday. We are very friendly and invite you to pop in for a chat if you have any queries or concerns - the classroom door is open from 8.30am everyday and Miss Miller will be available to speak to until the bell goes at 8.40am!

 

  

 

Key Information - Term 6

 

Welcome to Term 6- it's hard to believe that we are in the last term of this school year already! This term we will be covering two topics, the first being 'Under the Sea'. This will see us exploring what lies beneath the seas, investigating a variety of sea creatures as well as learning about the Titanic. In science, we will link our topic work on the sea to forces and motion. The second topic will be all about Volcanoes! We will be finding out what Volcanoes are, how they are formed and hopefully creating a few volcanic explosions of our own!

 

Maths:

We are wrapping up our work on Fractions this term and then moving onto our next topic which is statistics! We will examining lots of different charts and tables as well as learning how to interpret different types of data. Don't forget to keep practising your times tables! 

 

Literacy:

Our new class story this term is Kensuke's Kingdom, by Michael Morpugo. We will be doing lots of descriptive writing based around this and we are already intrigued by the story. 

 

PE Lessons:

 
Foxes will have PE every Tuesday afternoon this term, with our PE coach Mr Parish. Please ensure that your child has full PE kit in school every day as we like to fit in lots of extra sessions as the weather improves.

 

 

Homework:

Spellings will be issued on a Tuesday and should always be returned by the following Tuesday; ready for a spelling test on Wednesday morning. As well as these, every week your child will be given either a maths or Literacy based homework sheet which links to their learning in school. There will also be regular tasks and activities set on MyMaths- if you have not received a letter detailing your child's personal login details please speak to Miss Miller as soon as possible. We ask that you do your absolute best to encourage your child to complete all homework given to the best of their ability. If you have any questions regarding homework please see Miss Miller.

Roald Dahl Week!

 Foxes Class had a brilliant week celebrating all things Roald Dahl! We continued reading our class story 'James and the Giant Peach', made some amazing Fantastic Mr Fox masks and enjoyed a Roald Dahl extravaganza afternoon where we tasted snozzcumbers and frobscottle, cooked up some Twits' Beard cakes and created some lovely artwork! Here are some photographs of our week...
