Foxglove Class Page
Foxglove is a Year 5/6 mixed class taught by Mrs Critchley who is supported by Mrs Snoaden, Mrs Clements and Mrs Hill.
On behalf of everyone in Foxglove, welcome to our class page!
I'm really looking forward to this new year and the journey ahead of us.This section of our website will be used to provide a summary of Foxglove's learning journey. It will also be used to share information and post regular updates. Please scroll down for more information.
Should your child need to access home learning then Foxglove makes use of SeeSaw to deliver this. This can be found at the following link https://web.seesaw.me/. It can also be downloaded as an app through the app store.
Please make sure to inform the office if you need to make use of this and you will be provided with the log in details to access your individual child's learning. Physical learning packs are available from the office upon request.
In Foxglove class children are expected to do a number of homework tasks.
The first is Times Table Rockstars practice. This can be located at https://ttrockstars.com/ . Pupils know their individual log ins (although they can be made available on request), and the site can also be downloaded as an app from the app store and used with mobile or tablet devices. We ask all pupils to do this 3x a week. It does not need to be longer than 5-10minutes at a time.
The second is 5-10 minutes of reading 3x a week. This can be done using a book the child is reading at home or through a book that they have brought home from school. All children have a reading journal to record their reading. We ask that parents sign their child's reading.
The third task is spelling. The children have been given a list of the Year 5/6 statutory spelling words. They can choose how they practice these words, picking ideas from the spelling menu sent home, they are also available at the bottom of the page and on SeeSaw
The final task is our let's discover sheet. This is a group of tasks based on the learning children are doing during that term. Children are not expected to do all the tasks and can pick and choose which ones they would like to do. They are however welcome to do all the tasks if they would like to. The sheet will be sent home to pupils each term, in addition to being found at the bottom of this page.
