Welcome to Fox Class

Summer Term 2019

 

For this half term we have been working on our unit about Ancient Egypt which the children have been really enjoying. In English we have been writing stories based on the pyramids as well as learning how to write with suspense. In History we have learned about pharaohs, mummies, hieroglyphics and life in Ancient Egyptian times. 

 

In Maths we are continuing fractions but we are now able to find equivalent fractions, order fractions, and add fractions! We will soon be moving onto our unit on time so please continue to practise this at home to develop this skill.

 

In guided reading we have started a new book called "Bill's New Frock" by Anne Fine where a boy named Bill Simpson wakes up one day and he is a girl! This book addresses a lot of gender stereotypes and gender roles so we have had some great class discussions over it!

 

 

On  Fridays we have started something new where we go over to Butterfly (reception) class and read to them. Each student in Fox class has a partner in Butterfly class where they have been helping them read and building relationships with them. With this we have talked about the importance of praise, positive encouragement and being a role model! We have also worked on some strategies to help them sound out words! I am very proud of Fox class for how they have stepped up and been such great leaders.

 

 

I have seen so many great entries in the children's reading records where the children are continuing to read aloud at home! Keep up the good work! Remember that three reading record entries earns a house point!

 

I would also like to thank all of the parents that came to the class assembly! Everyone worked so hard on it and I was very proud to show what we have been learning in Fox class!

PE: Wednesday 

Library: Every other Monday 

Reading books change: Friday (children can bring a book from home for independent reading)
