WWF Earth Hour

To celebrate WWF Earth Hour and to raise awareness of climate change we contributed to sustainability by making a #promisetotheplanet. We also had lots of fun when we switched off all electrical items.

We even made the WWF website! https://www.wwf.org.uk/updates/how-schools-are-celebrating-earth-hour-2018

Excellent Work

We had a great time with the Creative Court that came into school for our ​PSHE.

Trip to Justice Galleries

Trip to NUAST

Trip to Think Tank Birmingham.

The children had a fantastic time and really enjoyed themselves. They were incredibly well-behaved and it was a super day all round; we particularly enjoyed the Cauldron Chemistry and Space Mission workshops because they involved lots of FIRE!!

Homework and useful websites

Children must continue to read as much as possible.

Children are to practise times tables every week - we have bought TT Rockstars following a trial by children in Fothergill.

Who said homework had to be be boring?!

Lots of English and Maths games and activities can be found on the side panel - just click on the links and have some fun!

There is also a document you can download with the website addresses on.

Superstar Readers

In year 5, we expect the children to read every day. It’s vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. You can earn a raffle ticket for every 3 reads recorded in your reading diary and raffle tickets mean prizes! Children can read anything that interests them; recipe books, newspapers, comics, information books and even cereal boxes!

Times tables

Children must keep practising their times tables up to 12 at home so they can complete their challenges in school. Your child should know and be able to use the commutative method. E.g. 2x4=8 in the 4x table and 4x2=8 in the 4x table.

WWF Green Ambassadors

  • Championing Sustainable Food
  • Saving on Energy & Water Use
  • Protecting forests & habitats
  • Taking action on climate change
  • Protecting endangered animals.

Our class name - Fothergill

Fothergill Watson (he later changed his name to Watson Fothergill) was one of the leading local architects practicing in the Nottingham area from about 1870 to 1906. During these thirty or so years he designed over a hundred buildings including houses, banks, churches, shops and warehouses; many of which still survive today.
