Foundation Stage

 

When your children first start school it can be a daunting experience. We aim to support children and parents through this time. You may have questions- some of which may be answered in our Welcome book. Any additional questions please speak to a member of Foundation staff informally or we will be happy to arrange a meeting at a suitable time.

Thanks

The Foundation team

Summer Newsletter

In the Summer term we are starting our learning about Minibeasts. We will be uploading some pictures very soon sharing some of our learning.

 

 Spring Newsletter

In the Spring term we are learning all about toys. On Monday 30th January children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite superhero. Here is a selection of work children have produced over the Spring 1 term.  

Our Learning Environment

In our class we have lots of different areas that we love to learn in. Each area has its own special purpose that allows us to learn through exploring, creating, listening and observing. We all love our learning environment so much we would like to share it with you. Come and take a sneak peek!

Foundation Topics

This term we have been learning and singing nursery rhymes. We have also been learning all about ourselves! We have created mud faces, name rockets and paper plate faces! We have started looking at Autumn and looking outside at our changing environment. We have been making bread hedgehogs, spray paint pictures and so much more!  

Our Learning

Over the Autumn 1 half term we have settled in and started to make new friends. We have been very busy learning lots of new things. In maths and understanding the world we have learnt about numbers and shapes, using natural materials to make representations of our bodies and faces. In communication, language and literacy we have learnt rhymes and stories- we even made houses for the 3 little pigs! We have spent a lot of time working on our physical development, using tools, building and creating models and expressing ourselves through song and dance. Through everything we do we are building our self confidence, making relationships and learning how to manage our feelings in different and new situations. Here are just a few pictures showing some of our learning this half term.
