Foss Class What’s Happening This Week Commencing 5th February 2018

Foss What’s Happening This Week

(Week Commencing 5th February 2018)

In Foss this week we are learning the following:



In English this week we are looking at what makes a great adventure story.  We wiil be describing the setting(s) and characters of our own story.



In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focussing on using  S Spelt ‘se’ ‘st’.  Explanation of the rule: All of these words have the ‘s’ sound, the e and the t are ‘silent’.



In maths we are focusing on adding and subtracting fractions.  


Maths Basics:

Maths basics are key skills/facts children need to know.  In maths basics this week we are focusing on times tables and using place value to order numbers.


Creative Curriculum:

We work on a theme every term and this term our key question is rainforests.  We will be using drama to help describe settings and characters.




Homework is set every night.  From Monday to Thursday, children will have:

  • 4 very short maths questions
  • 3 expanded sentences to write
  • reading (+ one more reading over the weekend)


Spellings are learnt in class but if you could help with practising at home, this would be brilliant.

Spellings we are focusing on in class this week are:


Listen Castle
Glisten Bristle
Fasten Increased
Creased Wrestling
Address Describe


Games/ websites/ activities to help with this pattern:  


Knowing times tables and number bond (pairs of numbers to 10/20 and beyond) well helps children make massive progress in maths so any help you can give your child will be great.  Your child has a Number Gym login and password in their planners and if they could go on Number Gym at home, even for 5 minutes, it will really help them have a secure knowledge and faster recall of times tables and number facts.
