Fox Class

Communication, Language and Literacy

This term we will be looking at ‘Rumble in the Jungle’, ourselves and dinosaurs. The children will be introduced to various rhymes and stories.  They will be encouraged to participate through spoken language and actions, recognising rhyme and alliteration.  During the term the children will also be encouraged to take turns in conversation, listen and respond and use language to recreate roles.   Mark making materials will be readily available for children to use independently during their play throughout the term.

Letter Sounds

The children will be consolidating their knowledge of Phase One from ‘Letters and Sounds.’ This will involve children in speaking and listening activities and prepare them for reading and writing activities throughout the year.   We will also begin phase 2 learning the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d.

Role Play Areas

Our role play area will be the home and later in the term a greengrocers.



We will begin work on the two areas within this area of learning and development: Numbers and Shape, Space and Measures.

Following initial assessments, the children will then begin working with numbers to 20, including counting, recognising and ordering numbers.  We will look at shapes, sort and match objects and compare sets of objects, using the vocabulary more and less.  The children will also be encouraged explore the Maths resources available to them both inside and outside the classroom.



Other Areas

This term the children will be settling into the routines of the school day.  We will look at the ‘Golden Rules’ and think about their importance in our classroom. The class will be encouraged to develop independence throughout this term as they become familiar with the classroom environment.

The children will be introduced to the computer suite, Learnpads and other digital equipment including, digital cameras and digital timers.

We will also take part a Health and Well Being Week and extend this by looking at the Greengrocers in Sidley.

Additionally, the children will participate in a ‘mini topic based on ‘Ourselves’, focusing on ‘What makes me, me?’
