Our Early Years class offers an innovative and inspirational child-centred learning environment. The development of our outdoor area together with the high staff to pupil ratio has led to excellent outcomes for the children at Foxes Piece School.
In Key Stage One the children follow the National Curriculum, the morning comprises of Guided Reading, Phonics, literacy and maths. There is a strong focus on the development of synthetic phonics for reading, writing, spelling alongside the development of letter formation and cursive handwriting. During the afternoons our topic learning is delivered by both the class teachers and specialist teachers to ensure the foundation subjects are taught creatively and with robust and meaningful cross curricular links.
Children in Key Stage Two begin their day with Guided Reading, followed by literacy and maths. Handwriting sessions are also taught several times a week. The afternoon sessions are based upon our class topics and delivered by either the class teachers or specialist teachers to ensure the foundation subjects are taught both progressively and creatively. Cross curricular links between the core subjects and foundation subjects are encouraged but as a school we recognise that some aspects of learning need to be taught discreetly to ensure the best outcomes.
