Welcome to Foss Class

Year 4 and 5

Welcome to Foss

 

Teachers in our class are:

  • Miss Gordon – Class Teacher
  • Miss Rowbotham– Assistant Teacher (who works with the children for interventions and small group work, but is not limited to our class).

We have lots of great things planned each week. We are really excited about the year ahead – please follow our learning adventures on the school’s Twitter account (@CamblesSchool).

 

During the week we have the following activities taught by specialists in the subject:

  • PE is on a Monday with Mr Jeff. Please could you make sure your child has their PE kit in school on Monday ready for the week (as every other week the children will have PE on a Wednesday too).
  • Restorative Circle Time with Miss Rowbotham on a Monday. This is a chance for the children to discuss the topic of the week; celebrate successes and resolve any problems.
  • Music is on a Wednesday on alternating weeks with Mrs McCartney
  • French is taught on a Thursday by Mrs Ruddle

 

Reading

Children take part in guided reading sessions daily.  Because we make notes on these sessions in guided reading folders, we do not write them up in the children’s planners.

Individual reading books can be changed by your child daily. If your child keeps forgetting to change their book, please let us know. Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least five times a week.  Please would you listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency.  We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.

 

Homework

  • Each week children will take home some times tables activities that they can use to practice the weekly times tables focus. We will have a times tables check on a Friday.
  • We will also be sending out half termly lists of spellings and will be learning these in class but if you could help your child learn any that we have identified they need extra help with spelling, this would be great!  We will check spellings weekly on a Friday and each Friday the children will have the opportunity to record their spellings for the following week in their planner, so they can practice at home if they wish.
  • We will also send out a reading challenge called Tic Tac Toe, which will have questions and activities for children to complete each time they have read. If they complete 4 in a row (getting them signed off by a parent/carer) then when they show me they will receive 5 gems. Once the whole grid is complete we will give the children a new one to work through.

If you have any queries about anything that is happening in class, please pop in to see us. Hopefully we will be able to help you then or arrange a time when we can discuss any issues with you that will need longer time.

Welcome to Team Humber!
