FOX TERM 1 Letter

We have been making models to show the different parts of our digestive system.

Warburton’s visited Fox Class to teach us about the history of their factory and healthy eating that includes bread. We all made a healthy sandwich!

For our Fabulous Finish we made sets of human teeth using our knowledge of the different types of teeth and their function.

Welcome to Term 2. Please see the newsletter below.

FOX TERM 4Letter (1)

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you are all well and have had some time to look through your child’s homeworking pack.  Please remember to log in to Google Classroom for further tasks and resources.  There is now a shared Year 4 Classroom that will include daily lessons.  Please contact school over the next 2 weeks if you have any queries.  Remember to read regularly with your child (a class reader will soon be featured in Google Classroom.  Below is a link that gives advice on maths learning for each year group which you may also find useful.

Good morning,

Please see the link below for free access to decodable books at home.  These are free Oxford Owls ebooks –https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/books/free-ebooks/

TT Rockstars

Unfortunately, there have been some problems with hacking issues and Mrs Russell our maths coordinator would like children to read her message below:

If you were the child who logged into someone else’s account and spent their money or changed their avatar or stats, then you should be as upset with yourself as the person’s who’s money you’ve spent. A good rockstar is an honest rockstar and that sort of behaviour is dishonest. You should promise to yourself to not do that again and say sorry to the other person who worked hard to earn that money.

We should all be being kind to each other during these difficult times. Mrs Russell.

I hope you are all keeping safe,

Miss Miller   30/3/20

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you are all well and the children are working through their home packs or accessing Google Classroom (or both).  From 20th April, we will be using the Fox Classroom on Google rather than the shared Year 4 one. In addition, I will be posting work here on our class page for those who are finding it difficult to use/access Google Classroom. Below is a Covid 19 time capsule activity for the children to do over the holidays.  If you cannot print it out, it can be done in their school book. Please can you pass this message on to anyone from the class that you are in contact with.

Best wishes,

Miss Miller 3/4/20

Good morning,

I hope everyone is well and keeping safe. I have a few extra ideas from Miss Hurley-Gale and Miss Butchers that I’m sure the children will enjoy.  Miss Hurley-Gale has set up a PE Classroom with fun activities; joining code rvslupu and Miss Butchers has found some fabulous music activities.  The links below take you to these.

Good morning Foxes,
I hope you are all well and keeping busy.
Yesterday, my sister’s cat went missing. Simba is only 10 months old so the family were really worried. They searched for him and found that he had climbed onto a roof and couldn’t get down. Here are the pictures of the Fire Service rescuing him!
Hope you all have a great day.

Best wishes,
Miss Miller Tuesday 12th May

Good afternoon Fox Class. I hope you are all well. Next week, I would like Group A and B to complete the Lockdown Interview. You could write your own answers or actually interview a friend or family member. Ask an adult to help you with spellings if you get stuck. You could even do this as a video like Molly if you prefer.
This week, I have included picture comprehensions for Group A and B to discuss with an adult or sibling or to record your answers. In addition, please start reading the wonderful books on MyON.
For art, you could make a Roman shield, mosaic or villa as shown further up the page. I hope you are putting together your Roman Britain projects; there is lots of information on BBC Bitesize to help (text and video).
Take care,
Miss Miller

TIMETABLE – 1st June 2020

Dear Foxes,
Below is the timetable for next week. You need to read the timetable daily to find out about the expected activities. Everyone is doing the same work where possible except for maths; Group A will complete the sheets below. Write the title for each Group A sheet in your book (see at the top of each sheet) and put the questions and answers in your book. You will not be able to do some of the tasks such as colouring unless you can print the sheets off. Also, they are American so you need to change ‘cents c’ to ‘pence p’. Answers will be uploaded on Friday.  All necessary resources are below under the date that they will be needed.
Best wishes,
Miss Miller
