Welcome to Foxes Class!
In Foxes we push ourselves to become creative, responsible learners by working hard, challenging ourselves, collaborating together and being respectful to our teammates.
Together we achieve more.
- The children are expected to read 5 times per week as part of our weekly reading challenge. The challenge starts on a Friday evening and runs through to the following Thursday evening. The children's reading journals will be collected in on a Friday morning. If the children have read 5 times there are prizes to be won! Please could you write your initials each time they have read and sign the bottom of the journal each week.
- For the first term the children's maths home learning will be set on MyMaths. The home learning will be set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. Please could they also go onto Times Tables Rock Stars 4 times per week as well. Just short 10 minute blasts.
- The children will also bring home a home learning book with some tasks related to their topic, which is World War 2 (Autumn term). They can do these tasks at their own pace and the books will be collected in at the beginning of December.
- Finally, they will also be set spellings on SpellingFrame on a Monday. Each week they will need to go on SpellingFrame 3 times to practice and play games to help them learn the weeks words. They will then be tested each Monday morning on the previous weeks spellings.
All usernames and passwords will be stuck in the front of their reading journals and home learning books.
World War 2
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. The children will learn about why the nations are at war and why child evacuees had to go on long journeys to be safe.
They will read Anne Franks diaries and learn about rationing, the blackout and why people had to 'Make to and mend'. They will delve into a bygone era where loose lips sank ships.
Be prepared to see some fantastic learning as the children's work will be added throughout the term.
Jim Jarvis is a runaway. When his mother dies, he is all alone in the workhouse and desperate to escape. But London in the 1860s is a dangerous and lonely place. Jim faces a constant battle to survive. Just as he finds some friends, he is snatched away and made to work for the remorselessly cruel Grimy Nick, constantly guarded by Nick’s vicious dog, Snipe. Will Jim ever be free?
Jim’s gripping adventure is based on the true story of the orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children’s refuge.
