Welcome to Fox Class! We are a mixed Year 5 and 6 class and Miss Banks is our teacher. Our teaching assistants during the week are: Mrs Coles (Mon-Wed), Mrs Taber (Thurs-Fri) and Mrs Eaton (interventions).
We pride ourselves on being a caring, capable and confident class.
As we are the oldest children in the school, we are given extra responsibilities to help the other classes. The roles include: House Point Collectors, Librarians, Lunchtime Supervisors, Collective Worship Helpers and Register Monitors.
Our class reading books this term are:
Letters From the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll
Skellig by David Almond
Anne Frank by Josephine Poole
- Doodle maths https://students.doodlelearning.com/
- Daily reading
- Spellings https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb/
- Learning times tables
Topic-related homework may also be set when appropriate, which links to our learning in class.
Weekly homework reminders:
Please learn all times tables up to 12x by Christmas. I have sent home activity packs to help with this, but the most effective way is by daily rehearsal and learning them by rote. I will be introducing weekly times table tests to help encourage this.
Top tips: Choose one times table to focus on at a time and get adults to test you at different times (eg in the car/ walking to school). Answer questions in random orders to ensure you know them properly eg: What's 4x8? What's 72 divided by 9?
Here are some songs that may help:
I have also created a Onedrive folder with printable resources: https://eastharptreeprimary-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/megan_banks_ubley_school/Eor-T8QeRgZIlornB4GtG18BVF8znpEmVjjsZc5lhtFxVw?e=G816CE
Please practise spelling words every day ready for Friday's test.
Please read at least 5x per week (including aloud to an adult) and record in your Kluwell.
