We are the FANTASTIC Foxes and we are always kind to each other, listen carefully and try our best when working and playing together. We have lots of fun and are always keen to try new things! In Foxes class we have our teacher Mrs Baker and our teaching assistants are Mrs Maskery and Mrs Wilson.
Thank you so much for everything you post onto Tapestry, we love to see your learning and also what you are doing while staying safe at home.
Remember to keep adding your work and messages as you complete the activities we set each day and the fun you are having with your family.
Our topics this Summer term are:
Me and My World
During the first half term we will be learning about what plants need to grow and sharing stories about fruit and vegetables. We will be retelling stories using a storymap and then making up our own stories and story endings.
In the second half term we will be learning about ourselves and the world around us. We will be sharing favourite stories and rhymes.
Over the term we will be covering all of the seven Foundation Stage Areas of learning.
Communication and Language
We will be sharing our own knowledge and ideas with our parents, carers and siblings. We will also be using story maps to engage in Talk for Writing activities.
This term we will be completing challenges to practice a variety of different skills for example throwing, catching, balancing, threading and cutting out shapes.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
We will be working collaboratively with our family to solve problems and share ideas. We will also learn about the cultures and beliefs of others.
We will be looking in depth at our shared stories and will use and make story maps to help us when retelling them. We will use non-fiction books and the internet to find out information. There will also be a variety of shared and independent reading and writing activities as well phonics lessons.
We can practise our reading books using Bug Club.
We will continue to practice our counting skills through our daily ‘Cool Count’ on Tapestry.
We will be practising our counting skills in many different ways and learning to add, subtract using objects and a number line. We will also learn how to double and find half of a number.
We will be participating in shape, space and measures activities, including naming 2D and 3d shapes, measuring and weighing objects and thinking about time.
Understanding of the World
In the first half term we will be learning facts about the conditions needed for growth, and which foods are healthy and decay. We will be looking at the world around us as Spring turns into Summer and looking closely at fruit, vegetables and flowers. We will learn about minibeasts and worms.
In the second half term, we will be learning about our environment and how we can help to look after our planet. We will talk about how we can stay healthy. We will also learn about what is alive and what is not alive, and where things live.
We will be using Tapestry to show our learning at home.
Expressive and Creative Development
Over the term, we will be looking closely at objects and draw them using different media and materials. We will explore sound and make our own instruments to make music at our own Kitchen Disco. We can video our own story endings.
