Hello everyone, welcome to Fox Class.

 

This term's connected curriculum topic will continue with 'Traders and Raiders'. It is a history based topic, where we have been learning all about Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasion in Great Britain.

The children have enjoyed using different sources of information to discover what life was like for the Anglo- Saxons and will be larning about the Viking invasions later this term. We will be looking at significant individuals, such as Alfred the Great and how he successfully defended his kingdom, Wessex against the Vikings!  In our art lessons, we will be designing our own Viking shields and making Anglo-Saxon style jewellery made from shells and coins. We will also use clay to create our own Viking rune stones.

The Fox class are ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly dark ages!

 

English

This term, we will be using a variety of texts to support our writing including, 'How to be a Viking', 'How to train your dragon', 'The boy who grew dragons','How to catch a star' and 'Tell me a Dragon'. In addition, we will be reading a range of poetry books, ready to plan for our own class book and individual performances!

Spellings will continue to be given out on a Friday, ready for the children to be tested on Wednesday morning. Spelling re-tests will be cpmpleted on a Thursday morning, for any scores lower than 8/10.

 

Maths

This term, we will be having a focus on fractions, decimals and money . Children will be learning to add, subtract and find equivalent fractions, as well as finding fractions of whole amounts. They will be able to recognise tenths and hundredths and confidently divide 1 and 2-digit numbers by 10 and 100.

We will be continuing to practise time tables daily as the children will be tested in the summer term. Please ensure you are learning these at home!

Hit the button and times table rock stars are both fantastic, fun resources.

 

R.E

Hinduism

This term we will be learning about Hinduism. Our over-arching question is:

'What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today?' 

 

P.E

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school every day. Please can children ensure that their hair is tied back and earings are removed. This term we will be focusing on tennis and cricket.

 

If you have any questions, or would like to know more please get in touch!

 

Many thanks,

Mrs Harris

Home Learning

Reading

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

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.

 

Times Tables

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.
