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.
We learn about a different topic 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 through experimental play and outdoor learning.
Foxes also focus daily on developing literacy skills through a Comprehensive Literacy Programme. All children take part in reading, writing and letters and sounds each day. Stories and role play bring books alive, with pupils encouraged to interact with props and 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 our pupils to communicate and express their needs, wishes, feelings and personalities.
We like to explore outside and around our local community.
