Welcome to Foxes class!
We are the Year 3 and 4 class at Broughton Primary School.
Miss Lee is the class teacher.
Mrs Baker helps us with our learning in the morning.
We are also very lucky to have Mrs Bottle to come in and teach us French and Mrs Devereux teach us PE.
At the beginning of the year, we created a class charter to show how we can get the best out of our learning. This is up in our classroom for everybody to see and we are very proud of it.
What a day looks like in Foxes class
Every day is different Foxes class but we make sure to fit lots of learning in!
We come into class at 8:45, make our lunch choices on the iPad and complete some morning work before the register. We then start our morning with some maths before break time.
At break time we can visit the Tuck Shop to buy some healthy snacks from the kitchen. Our Head Boy and Head Girl run the Tuck Shop.
After break, we have our spellings lesson and English lesson. If we have enough time, we try and sit down together to read our class book!
Our lunch times are really fun because we get to catch up and play with all the children in the school. We can run around on the Acre or play on the timber trail.
In the afternoon, we have some times tables practise time before diving into our topic! Our topics are really fun and we get to use skills and knowledge from a variety of different subjects during this time.
After school, we can take part in lots of different fun after school clubs, which are run by the teachers. These opportunities mean we can learn a new skill and work with other children in the school.
Homework in Foxes class
We are given a set of 10 spellings and 2 sets of times tables facts to practise over the week. These are given out every Thursday and tested the following Thursday.
We also have our Reading Miles challenge. Every time we read at home, we get to colour in a part of our track. If we fill up the whole track, we win a prize!
This year, we have also been working hard to complete our times table challenge books. We are tested on how well we know our times tables and if we are quick enough, we are awarded with a badge in Celebration Assembly on Friday.
Online safety during home learning
Below are links to websites which have a variety of activities you can complete with your children during the home learning time to remind them of the importance of being safe online and how to stay safe.
This link has a variety of activities you can complete including creating a family agreement, taking part in online safety quizzes (which could be done individually or in a competitive situation to make it more fun), and an activity to explore screen time and finding a balance.
This link has a game targeted at children between the ages of 8 and 10. As they play the game, they will be asked questions regarding online safety that they have to answer. At the end of each level they get to select upgrades.
The ‘Stay Safe’ tab also breaks down internet safety advice into different sections, such as gaming, sharing information and searching. It gives children helpful tips and reminders
This is a Parents vs Kids internet safety quiz which can either be played online or through an Alexa device to see who is more ‘clued up’ about the internet.
This is a link to an e-book which could be read with your children. The little bird encounters different problems whilst on the internet.
Another quiz – there are accompanying videos on this site which you could watch before. (https://www.childnet.com/resources/the-adventures-of-kara-winston-and-the-smart-crew/watch-full-movie)
