Welcome to the Foxes' Class.

Class Teacher: Miss Alden      Class TA: Mrs Pope

 Our topic for Terms 1 and 2 is Blue Planet: The water cycle and mountains. 

Please see our Topic Web for more information. 

Reading Books

If your child is a free reader they should have an ongoing book which they bring into school everyday. They may choose a book from the selection in class, or if they prefer, they may bring a book from home to enjoy. Whether your child is a free reader or uses the reading scheme we need to record when they have finished a book and then they can then be swapped. 

Their current reading book should be recorded in their Home School book, together with signed comments from home whenever they read to someone.

Please don’t forget to sign your child’s home/school book whenever they read at home so that they can get their certificates and rewards. Thank you! 



Foxes will have P.E. on Tuesdays (and Wednesdays after Forest School has finished.) Children will need to come to school already dressed in their correct kit on those days. We are aiming to do all lessons outside, so they will need the appropriate kit for this:

·         Farmborough House Group t-shirt or a plain coloured t-shirt for correct House 

·         Navy blue or black sports shorts

·         Plimsolls or trainers

·         Sports socks

·         Long joggers and sweatshirt for cold weather

We won’t run lessons in very wet weather, but it will be sensible for children to bring in a spare set of clothes and footwear on these days. If preferred, these spares can be left in school in your child’s P.E. bag.



This will be sent out on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday.



These will be sent out on Monday and the children will be tested on Friday. 


Home School books

Your child has a Home School book in which to record their reading, spellings and times tables. It also contains lots of other useful information.

We ask parents to sign the Home School book each week, and they are collected in each Friday. Evidence of reading at home, and spellings and times tables practice are checked.  Parents may write comments if they wish, and teachers also may convey information in this way.

Other General Reminders:
Please ensure that children have a rainproof coat with hood, hat and wellies in school and that all belongings are clearly named. 

The central lost property point will not be in operation.

Classrooms are not as warm as would be normal for this time of year due to the need for extra ventilation, so please ensure your child wears appropriate uniform.


Thank you for your continued support in your child’s learning. If you need to get in touch with us or have any concerns or queries at all, please use the class email address which we will check regularly.

Thank you.

Miss Alden and Mrs Pope.
