Hello everyone, welcome to Fox Class.
I hope you all had a fantastic break and that you are all excited for the new school year.
Our connected curriculum theme for term 1 will be Burps, Bottoms and Bile!
Our journey through the term will start by reading an exciting book called The Demon Dentist by David Walliams - award winning children's author! The book retells the funny account of Alfie, an 11 year old boy who absolutely HATES the dentist. The book will compliment our topic, highlighting the importance of dental hygiene!
We will draw on our artistic talents to design our own toothbrushes, create our own healthy snacks and engaging leaflets!
We will be learning all about Place Value! This is something you have been learning since Reception! So, I hope you will bring bags of prior knowledge with you this term.
R.E this term will focus on the Creation story, creating links between Genesis 1 and what Christians believe about God and the Creation. Our big question this term is:
'What do Christians learn from the creation story?'
Please see more about our home learning below!
I look forward to meeting you all,
The children are expected to read a minimum of four times a week. Reading is a vital life skill and something that you cannot live without. A love for reading is something I aim to instil in Fox Class.
Spellings will be sent out on a weekly and termly basis. The children will sit a spelling test each Friday and are expected to stay in the practise any words they haven't learnt the previous week. The spellings for this term can be found at the bottom of the page.
Children are expected to know all of their times tables by the end of year 4. The children will be asked to sit a weekly 'Sound Check' on TT Rockstar. This only takes a maximum of 5 minutes and can be done within break/lunch time if the children do not have access to a computer.
