Foxes is made up of Year 3 children and Year 4 children.  At the moment we have 25 children in our class.

Our class teacher is Mrs Green.  Our teaching assistants are Miss Snape and Mrs Thacker, both of whom actually came to this school when they were children! On Thursdays, Miss Snozwell teaches us.

Mrs Green has an interest in English and leads Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening across the school. She also runs our School Council and Eco Champions group which give 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:

  • Hearing your child read for 5-10 minutes daily
  • Supporting your child with spellings, using the strategies sent home last half term.
  • Practising times tables
  • Regular use of Mathletics and Hit The Button
  • Supporting your child with their weekly homework
  • If you have any questions about your child’s learning, please don’t hesitate to come and see us
  • Many thanks for your continuing support.
