Welcome to Foxes!
We have fun in Foxes!
Foxes Class is in the Lower School and is primarily a Key Stage 1 class, the age of pupils range from 4 - 8 years old. The curriculum is designed to continue to build on the play skills developed in Badgers Class and to develop the skills needed for learning. We work hard on early Literacy and Numeracy skills and developing the communication skills of all our learners is our top priority.
We have a different topic to learn about each half term and our activities are themed around this. Learning takes place through sensory activities, stories, play and focussed tasks. We like to explore the world around us and learn through experimental play.
Foxes also focus daily on developing literacy skills through a Balanced Literacy Programme. We all take part in reading, writing and letters and sounds activities each day. Stories and role play bring books alive with pupils encouraged to interact with props or sensory activities.
We use a range of PODD books, Makaton signing and high tech devices to support our communication. We work hard to enable all of our pupils to communicate and express their needs, wishes, opinions, feelings and personalities.
We develop our literacy skills throughout all activities.
We really enjoy reading books
We also work on our maths skills throughout the day.
Some of us go horse riding.
We develop our fine motor skills through therapeutic play activities, cooking and art.
Foxes join the rest of Lower School on the playground at lunchtime.
Most of all we love to learn and have fun!
