Welcome to Foxes!
Foxes Class is in the Lower School and is a Key Stage 1 class of 5 and 6 year old children. The curriculum is designed to continue to build on the learning through play and skills developed in previous classes. We focus on early Literacy and Numeracy skills and developing the communication skills of all our learners.
Each half term we enjoy a new topic and our activities are themed around this. Learning takes place through a range of sensory activities, stories, play and focused tasks. We like to explore the world around us through real life experiences, play and outdoor learning.
In Foxes class, we also focus daily on developing literacy skills through a Comprehensive Literacy Programme. All children take part in reading, writing, letters and sounds activities each day. Stories and role-play bring books alive, engaging pupils and encouraging them to interact with props and sensory activities. We use a range of PODD books, Makaton signing and high tech devices to support our children’s communication. We work hard to enable all our pupils to communicate and express their needs, wishes, feelings and personalities in their unique way.
Here are some of the activities we enjoy in Foxes.
