Fox Class

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

Weekly homework:

Topic-related homework may also be set when appropriate, which links to our learning in class. 

Weekly homework reminders:

Times tables:
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:

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.
