Witchampton CofE First School

Foxes

Welcome to Foxes class!

Welcome to Foxes class!

Foxes is made up of Year 3 children and Year 4 children.  At the moment we have 24 children in our class.

Our class teacher is Mrs Green and we have Mr Montacute teaching us on a Wednesday.  Our teaching assistants are Mrs Thacker and Miss Snape, who both actually came to this school when they were children. On a Tuesday afternoon, Mrs Hurleston comes in to teach P.E.

Mrs Green has an interest in English and leads Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening across the school. Mr Montacute runs our School Council which gives the children a voice in ways to celebrate our achievements and make improvements to our school and its environment.

As the oldest children in the school, we take on responsibilities and jobs to help our school run smoothly.  One of those roles is to look after new children that arrive in the school, especially the new Hedgehogs when they arrive in September. The Hedgehogs are given a ‘buddy’ from Year 4 and sometimes Year 3, who will sit with them at lunchtime and look after them in the playground. We also have House Captains - two for each house - who are role models and leaders of our 4 house teams across the school.

In the Summer term, our Year 4 children get the opportunity to go to Leeson House near Swanage for a one night residential trip.  They participate in lots of exciting activities there, enhancing their learning and strengthening relationships.

The children of Foxes class often get the opportunity to represent the school in various interschool sporting events, for example running and tag rugby. 

As part of the Key Stage 2 curriculum, we learn French.  Mrs Green takes the class for this and we learn basic conversation and language.

Please continue to support your child by:
