  Welcome to Foxes Learning Page


Welcome to the Foxes Learning Page. We hope that you can find everything that you need here to help you understand how and what your child will be learning in the Foxes class. We are so excited about all the learning that will happen his year. 


Meet the Foxes team

 In Foxes we are;          





Each day we have lessons in; 



At Tiptoe School we learn cursive handwriting which means we learn to do lead ins and lead outs on all our lower case letters. We learn to write this way because it will help us to join our letters when we are ready to do so.






We use a systematic synthetic phonics teaching programme to ensure we give all children a solid base upon which to build as they progress through the school.

In phonics lessons we teach children the sound made by each letter which helps them to read and write words. We follow a phonics scheme called Monster Phonics. Click on these links to hear the sounds and actions.                                            Meet the Monsters  Monster Phonics Actions Monster Phonics Story Time

Maths                                                                                         We use concrete resources, pictorial and abstract representations to show that we fully understand what we have learnt. We have a designated Maths area and Maths activities and resources will be constantly accessible through out continuous provision.                                                                                                                   

Here are some resources to support your child's Maths learning at home  Maths resources to support learning

Literacy                                                                                        In the first half term we will be listening to lots of stories that help us to think about ourselves and what makes us special. We will also listen to lots of stories that rhyme to help us to start distinguishing between sounds.   


At Tiptoe we use the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme. In the Foxes Class, the children will be learning the names of the characters. As the half term progresses the Foxes will be given a picture book featuring some of the characters.   

                                                                                                                                                Click on these links to view some suggested reading books for Year R.                                          Suggested Reading List Year R

The Early Learning Goals    The Early Learning Goals (ELGs) are the goals or targets children are expected to achieve at the end of their Reception year. They will be working towards these goals throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage. There are 17 ELGs across all the areas of learning. The EYFS Profile is broken down into seven specific areas of learning:                                                                                       -Communication and Language                                                          - Physical development                                                                     - Personal, Social and Emotional development                                  - Literacy                                                                                         -Mathematics                                                                                  -Understanding the World                                                               -Expressive arts and design                                                                                                                                                          In the Foxes Class, most of our learning occurs naturally through play. We have a carefully resourced continuous provision, which we feel gives the children plenty of opportunity to develop in every area of learning. We provide enhancements within the provision and invitations to play for more in depth learning. Direct teaching also occurs to develop key skills.
