Welcome to Fabulous Fox Class. We are an enthusiastic, hardworking year 5 class who work really hard to ensure we are being the best versions of ourselves and “the best class in the school”. We have Mrs Powell as our class teacher and Miss Davis is our teaching assistant.
We work as a team using collaboration and cooperation whilst supporting each other with our learning and goals. We all ensure each member of Fox class is cared about, supported when needed and encouraged when struggling. We have the say ‘Hakuna Matata’ on our door as it means no worries and we feel coming into class should make children feel safe and happy.
We have already completed a spectacular Space topic and found out lots of information about space with the help from a Planetarium visit and Mr Scott who knows everything about Space!
This term our topic is called ‘Off with her Head!’ We have been learning about the Tudors – Henry VIII and his wives, the motives behind his actions, crime and punishment in Tudor times and have also been thinking about the trial of Anne Boleyn using information from the time period. Did you know that all of the people on the jury at her trial were her enemies?
We have made miniatures, self-portraits showing the meaning of colour, designed a Tudor costume using cross hatching skills and looked at the places where Henry VIII lived and visited.
To help us find out more about the Tudor era, we have been reading the book “Treason” by Berlie Doherty. We have had the opportunity to write a variety of genres as well as writing our own riddles and repeating poems. We have had the chance to perform them to our class and Assistant Head. As well as all the Christmas events planned, we have had a Tudor Workshop.
We have had a great time so far and we are looking forward to our future Topics.
