Foxes Class 2018-2019 1

Welcome to Foxes!


Welcome to Foxes Class. We are a fantastic group of Year 3 children.

Our Teacher is Mrs Bellis and our LSAs are Mrs Young and Mrs Mitchell.

Mrs Bellis planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA) is on Thursday afternoons. During this time Foxes will be taught by Mrs Slater.


Wow, I can't believe the first half term is over. the children have settled well and are working really hard.

We all really enjoyed our first topic 'The Living Rainforest', the children learnt well and are now sloth enthusiasts!

Our next topic 'Funny Bones' is looking to be just as exciting, we are really looking forward to it.


 Remember FOXES are FUN, FIT and FOCUSED to learn.


 Our new topic is Funny bones. It is time to put our lab coats on. Our Science focus  will be the Human Body and our mini doctors will be examining skeletons, muscles, teeth and the digestive system!!! We will also be becoming authors writing our own version of the 'Funny Bones stories.



Our games lesson will take place on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure you have suitable school shorts, T shirt and trainers. As the weather becomes colder please ensure you have a warm tracksuit.

PE will be on Tuesday afternoons and we will need  shorts and a school P.E. T shirt.

It is important that we have the correct, named kit in school at all times.


Home Learning

Please encourage an adult to hear you read every day! We will continue to regularly check reading books and help you to change them when necessary. Please ask your adult to use the reading records to comment on your  reading and for any feedback about your books, reading habits etc.! We do collect the reading diaries in daily to keep a check on your reading. If you can't manage to read at home we will provide an opportunity at playtime for you to do so. Remember when you have your reading record signed at least 5 times in a week, to show you have read, a 'Super Reader' badge will be sent home via Marvellous Me.

We are looking forward to seeing the amazing variety of POWer projects you are working on. Each child needs to complete 5 POWer points with the tasks they choose. Work together with Mum and Dad to complete a project.


There is still an expectation that you will practise your times tables weekly using RMeasimaths, J2E Blast and Top Marks web sites.


Learning the words on the 3 and 4 spellings list is also important and we will be regularly testing you to see how many you can spell. Travelling to and from school is always a good time for oral practise!


We will also be continuing to practise telling the time so any time spent looking at analogue and digital clocks will be time well spent!

Foxes Out And About
Mr Foxy, our class mascot, will be having an adventure every weekend when he is taken home by one of our class members. Mr Foxy has his own diary where you can write about the adventures you have had with Mr Foxy during the week. The children have been asked to look after Mr Foxy really well! Please remember to write a few sentences about where Mr Foxy has been, and to try and put a photo of you and Mr Foxy, in the special book.

Parent Feedback
If you want to share any positive thoughts about your child's learning and progress then please do! Write it in their reading records and we will endeavour to reply as soon as possible. The same goes for any difficulties that your child may be experiencing. Don't leave it, let us know. It will have a huge impact on your child's learning!

Look on our Year 3 and 4 page to find some cool websites that we will be using in school and you can use for practise at home.
