Friendly Foxes

Welcome to Friendly Foxes!

We are the Friendly Foxes from Reception. 

Our Staff Team: 

Mr Phillips - Class Teacher

Mrs Escritt, Mrs Hodgson, Miss Parle - Teaching Assistants

Mrs Ali - Cover Teacher (Tuesday and Thursday Afternoons)

Useful Information:


  • PE is on a Wednesday morning and Reception pupils should have PE kit on their peg in school. This is different to Years 1-6 as managing their personal needs (such as dressing) is part of the Early Years Curriculum. 

Learning at Home:

  • Pupils have their home reading book changed twice a week (if read), on a Monday and a Friday. Please comment in your child's planner when they have read at home.
  • Pupils can also use the online platforms Numbots, Bug Club and Education City. Usernames and passwords for these are found inside the front cover of your child's planner.

Spring Term

British Science Week

As part of British Science Week, Reception participated in a range of science-based activities. Our current learning theme is the life-cycles of plants and animals, and the children are having great fun finding a range of minibeasts, as well as reading and learning about 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and 'Tadpole's Promise'. At the end of last week, the Friendly Foxes carried out a science experiment to investigate how plants absorb and transport water to their different parts. Using food colouring, we discovered that water travels from the roots, up the stem to the leaves and flower.

Our Pudsey Walks

This half-term, Reception have been learning about the different places people live and, in particular, our local area: Pudsey. Last week, we learnt about the differences between the countryside, villages, towns and cities. This week, we have been learning about different places in Pudsey such as the church, park, bus station, shops, library and post office. We even went on a walk in small groups to spot some of these places, before learning about maps and drawing our own maps of Pudsey.
