Welcome Year 5


Welcome to Fox Class. We are a class of Year 5 children who are taught by Miss Simpson, Mrs Broxholme and from Autumn 2 Miss McGovern.  We are helped by Mrs. Oxley and Miss. Ferguson.


This page is where you can find important information, as well as updates of the fun things we are getting up to in class.


We are part of UKS2  and therefore learn closely with the rest of Year 5 and 6 in Kestrel and Kingfisher Class. PE is on Tuesday and Thursday. Please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days and dressed appropriately for the weather should we be outside. 


Homework will be given out on Fridays along with Spellings. These will be tested the following week.  Homework is to be handed in Thursday.  If you need any extra support with homework please send a message or ask your child to come speak to us and we can provide them with extra support.


If you need to contact us directly, please use the contact form above or contact the class page directly on ClassDojo.

Reminders for Autumn Term 2023

  • Books will be changed when needed. Children will need to place their reading diary and book in the changing basket in the classroom. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home, both to themselves and someone else.  Whatever your child reads; note in their reading diary.
  • Each day, children will need suitable uniform according to the weather, water bottles containing water only, healthy snacks for break, reading book and reading diary every day.
  • The children will not need to bring in additional stationery or pencil cases as this equipment will be provided. Pencil cases from home will be asked to be put away.
  • Please be reminded that toys should be left at home.
  • PE for Kingfisher and Kestrel will be on Tuesday and Friday and PE for Fox will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Children are to come to school in their PE kit and trainers on these days to avoid the need to change in school. As much as possible outdoor PE will remain outdoor so please ensure children are dressed appropriately.
  • Class Dojo is still being used to communicate with parents and there is a contact the teacher form on the class page on the website for you to be able to contact us directly.
  • Homework will be given out each Friday and expected to be handed in the following Thursday.  If your child finds it difficult please ask them to speak to their teacher by Monday/Tuesday so that we can go through it and supply with extra support if needed.
