Foxes

Welcome to Foxes!

 

We are a Year 4 class. Our teacher is Miss Owen and our teaching assistant is Mrs Mustafa.

 

In Autumn term we were busy learning about our local area...

 

... and had some really exciting trips and experiences.

On 7th September, we were challenged by different puzzle activities to really get our brains working. The only rule was that we weren't allowed to give up!

We went to Campbell park to test out our orienteering skills. We had a great day map reading and seeing some of the local sculptures.
Whilst learning about the history of the local area, we visited the oldest building in Houghton Regis - All Saint's Church. The font that we saw is even older than the building!
At the end of our Science topic about human digestion, we invited our adults in to help create life-size posters of the digestive system. We had fun drawing, painting, cutting and sticking all of the organs onto our posters, and loved that our adults could join in too!

This term (Spring 2019) is going to be just as exciting, with new topics to explore together.

 

 

Please check back soon to see what else we've been up to!

Important information

 

PE kit

We have PE on a Tuesday morning, and swimming on a Thursday morning. Occasionally you will need your kit for other activities, so it's best to have it in school all week, just in case!

One of our lessons is outside, so your PE kit should include suitable outdoor footwear, plain jogging bottoms and a rugby shirt/plain jumper, as well as black shorts and a red t-shirt for warmer weather.

 

Homework

  • Children are expected to read daily for about 15 minutes. This does not necessarily need to be to an adult, and can be either their library book or their reading scheme book.
  • Written homework is given out on a Friday afternoon, and is due back in by Wednesday (to allow us time to mark it!)
  • Each week, children will receive about half an hour of Maths and English homework, as well as a set of spellings to learn.
  • The Maths homework is set online at www.mymaths.co.uk
  • Each child has their own login, and has instructions explaining how to access the homework stuck on the inside of their homework book.
     

If you need help, or don't have the internet at home, homework club runs on a Tuesday and Wednesday lunchtime in the computer suite.
