Meet the Foxes 


Welcome to the ‘FOXES’ home page. Our class teacher is Miss Loveridge and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Thornhill. You will see us on the playground every morning from 8.40am if you have any questions or messages.



Our P.E. times this term are Tuesday afternoon and Thursday Morning. It is, however, recommended that pupils keep their P.E kit in school at all times as we often have extra P.E. sessions such as Freddy Fit.  

 

We will listen to children read every day so please ensure that your child's book bag and home reading book are brought to school every day. Please sign and date if you have heard your child read at home to enable us to change their book when they need to. Reading records will be checked and books changed on a weekly basis.

 

Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Monday. You can also help your child by reading daily and signing your child's home - school reading record and practicing times tables and weekly spellings.  




                                       

                                   


In Foxes our topic this term is 'Roaming Romans'. In this topic we will travel back to Roman times and explore why Britain was invaded and settled by the Romans and what effects this had on the future of Britain. We will then study everything from gladiators and aqueducts to emperors and goddesses, in this cross-curricular topic, which will capture the children's imaginations.

What have the Foxes been up to?

In Year 5 (Foxes) this term we have been learning predominantly about the Victorians. We have also been lucky enough to have had 2 special visits from local authors; Tracy Todd (Unscanned) and Jes Parkin (Tommy Ellis Goes to Sea). On both visits the class enjoyed a book reading, discussed the blurb, prologues and importance of having eye-catching front covers. Subsequently, the children took part in a short Questions and Answers session with the authors; were they could ask Tracy and Jes about what inspired them to be writers and their careers as authors. 
 
     


WC – 30th November 2015

Christmas Fayre

On Friday, the 4th of December, the school held its annual Christmas Fayre to raise money for the school. Each year group was tasked with making a product to sell at the fayre.

  

    

Y5 had made Christmas cupcakes and it was obvious on the day that our delicious treats were the best. Not only did they look amazing but they were very reasonably priced. With the help of a fanatic sales team, all of our Christmas cupcakes had sold out by 3:10pm.


 

  

As well as tasty treats made by the children, there was also an array of homemade cakes made by some our parents to help us raise even more money. The chocolate cake in particular proved to very popular and it all vanished before Miss Loveridge or Mr Parkinson could get their hands on a piece.


We would like to thank all our parent helpers and all the parents that came to the fayre. We very much appreciate your continued support.

WC – 7th December 2015

Tommy Ellis Competition Winners!

Earlier in the term, we were lucky enough to have local Author, Jes Parkin, visit us and to tell about her second Novel ‘Tommy Ellis heads North West’. Her stories are based on a young boy named Tommy Ellis, who goes on his father’s trawler and has wonderful adventures.

After telling us about the fishing industry that we used to have in Hull, she then read extracts from her new book. At the end of her visit Jess invited the children to enter a drawing competition. She wanted us to draw pictures of either trawler boats or characters from her story.

This morning she came back to announce the winners. All of the winners were from Y5 but unfortunately all three winners were in Mr Parkinson’s class.

 

Jes was particularly impressed with Kristiana’s drawing of Tommy Ellis, she said that it was exactly how Tommy would look.
