Foss Class What’s Happening This Week Commencing 6th November 2017

Foss What’s Happening This Week

(Week Commencing 6th November 2017)

In Foss this week we are learning the following:



In English this week we are writing Viking reports and a Viking myth.


In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focussing on using words with the long

/ai/ sound spelt with ei.


In maths we are focusing on multiplication and extending to division.

Maths Basics:

Maths basics  are key skills/facts children need to know.  In maths basics this week we are focusing on times tables and bonds to 100 and doubling and halving.

Creative Curriculum:

We work on a theme every term and this term our key question is ‘Vikings, barbarians or innovators?’.  This week we are focussing on researching Vikings and finding interesting and exciting facts.



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

  • 4 very short maths questions
  • 3 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:


eight vein
eighth veil
eighty beige
weight sleigh
neighbour freight


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 log in 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.
