At Foxfield Primary School, we ensure that learning is planned for all in a cross-curricular way. This ensures that children are able to make links within their learning. Lessons challenge all pupils through a variety of activities, providing opportunities for feedback from adults and peers. Through the high expectations of everyone at Foxfield, we aspire to achieve the highest quality outcomes.
During this half term, we will be focusing on the children’s social and emotional development. This will help the children to develop the skills to make relationships with others, become independent and understand the expected behaviour for learning.
In English, our core texts will be ‘My world, your world by Melanie Walsh and ‘The Boy, The Mole, The Fox & The Horse’ by Charlie Mackesy. Through these texts, we will learn how we have differences and similarities and for children to talk about their likes and dislikes.
