The curriculum at Fox Hill is delivered in a variety of ways, through class teaching, group work and to the individual, as required. We place a particular emphasis upon delivering a skills based curriculum which will equip the pupils with the necessary skills to become independent learners. We try to make sure the learning is delivered through exciting cross-curricular themes.
Half termly curriculum newsletters are sent home which provides more details about the specific subjects and concepts the children will be learning over the coming weeks.
Phonics is taught throughout the school and we follow the “Letters and Sounds” programme. Year 1 pupils must undertake a statutory Phonics Screening Check in the Summer term and information about their achievements is shared with parents.
We have extensive resources to support reading which are from a number of different commercially produced schemes. We have incorporated these resources into a school wide book banding system which uses colours bands to level all reading materials. Children are allocated a colour band from which to select books which match their reading and comprehension ability.
We teach maths in a variety of ways at Fox Hill, using practical activities as well as written work. We use two main schemes to support our teaching; Mathematics Mastery from Nursery to Year 2 and White Rose Hub from Years 3 to 6. We are gradually rolling out Maths Mastery across the school, one year group at a time. Have a look on our Maths page for more information!
More information about our curriculum can be found in the School Prospectus.
