To Foxes Class!
We are the Fabulous, Fantastic Foxes and we just love to learn! We are creative individuals with a ‘can-do’ positive attitude. Foxes are caring, kind and loving and we take pride in always wanting to help our peers to succeed.
Our teacher is Miss Wilmot and we are incredibly lucky to have Miss Richards and Miss Allwood as the teaching assistants in our class to help us grow and learn. We are so excited to be teaching Reception this year!

Our topic this Spring term is:
Into the Woods.
Over the term we will be covering all of the seven Foundation Stage Areas of learning.
Communication and Language
This term, and throughout the year, there will be a huge focus on communication and language. We will be sharing lots of wonderful books together, both fiction and non-fiction, to practice our listening, comprehension, and questioning skills. We will sing along with nursery rhymes, enjoy imaginary play in continuous provision, and share our own knowledge and experiences with our peers.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
We will continue to think about our actions and how to be good friends to everyone in the class. We will think about what actions are good and which actions we need to improve on. We will begin to think about our feelings and try to understand how we are feeling, and how we might make another person feel. We will also learn all about our Golden Rules and how to follow them inside and outside.
We will focus on aspects of our every day life, such as getting dressed, our oral hygiene and hygiene in general.
We will also learn about the cultures and beliefs of others.
We will continue to practise our counting skills through our ‘Cool Count’, which includes counting forwards from 0-20, and backwards from 10-0. We will also work on recognising numbers - we are already really good at this! We will be looking closely at numbers 1-5 and how they can be represented, compared and the composition of. We will also be learning all about positional language. We will look at one more and one less than a number.
We will continue learning about capacity, mass and size. We will also continue to explore, identify and create patterns in our provision.
Expressive and Creative Development
Over the term, we will be using lots of different techniques to create exciting, endless possibilities of creations. We will explore colour and experiment with colour mixing, understanding the colour wheel and how to create our own colours using only primary. We will practice drawing and creating shapes with multiple outlets.
We will also share lots of songs and nursery rhymes, learning how to move rhythmically and also create our own stories using our imaginations.
This term, we are also working hard on our Nativity performance. We can't wait for you to come and watch!
