This year the Foxes are being taught by Miss Miller (Class Teacher). Mr Collins is our fantastic Teaching Assistant and he is in class with us everyday. Mrs Gardiner teaches the Foxes every Monday morning. 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!
TERM 6 INFORMATION:
This term we will be continuing our whole school topic of 'Carnival' however children in Year 3 and 4 will also be studying Volcanoes! We are very excited to get going with this as the children have helped us to plan some really exciting lessons based on what they would like to find out about Volcanoes.
This term will see us moving on to look at time and shape in maths as well as revising our key skills (place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) ready for the end of the year. In Literacy we will read a new class story and use it to inspire some fantastic writing.
As the weather (hopefully) improves, we will be taking part in more outdoor PE lessons, working on both our Rounders skills as well as Athletics. Don't forget to come and join us for Key Stage 2 Sports Day on Monday 10th June!

To kick start our learning, on the first day back after half-term the children will be taking part in a St George's Day celebration where we will celebrate being British and what this means.

Welcome back to Term 4!
This term our topic is Chocolate! As you can imagine, we are all very excited about this. Over the next 6 weeks we will be learning about where chocolate comes from, how it is made and the history of chocolate around the world. We are really looking forward to our trip to Cadbury's World on Tuesday 5th March, where we will get to experience the story of chocolate, beginning with the Mayan civilisation. Of course, there will be lots of opportunity to taste delicious chcoloate too! As the term goes on, we will be designing our very own chocolates and creating these in class, yummy!
As well as learning about chocoloate, we will be continuing to develop our multiplication and division skills before moving on to fractions. We will be reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in Guided reading lessons, while writing some chocolate themed short stories in Literacy.
PE is every Wednesday afternoon. All children should have full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include: house colour t-shirt, shorts or jogging bottoms, trainers or plimsolls.
Swimming takes place every Thursday morning. Children need to bring suitable swimwear, towel, swimming hat and goggles (if they wish to).
Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and is due back the following Monday. Homework will consist of 7 weekly spellings as well as some maths or grammar practise.
There is no Forest School for the Foxes this term.
All children should bring their Reading Record back into school every day as we use these in our Guided Reading lessons. It is important that the children read regularly at home as well as at school, recording their efforts in their Reading Records, to be checked in class.
Children should also bring a bag/ book bag into school everyday. This encourages the children to be more independent and organise their belongings, as well as transport letters and homework back and forth without them being lost or damaged.
