Foundation Stage


Welcome to the Foundation Stage page...

First week back after the half term has been a busy one! The children have enjoyed telling us about seeing bonfires and fireworks and making pictures all about their experiences. The butterflies had a great time gardening too. 

Another great week in Foundation!

The children have had another great week at school this week! We have been learning about people who help us in our community and we were lucky enough to have a guest come in and speak about being a nurse. This sparked some great play between the children. They have been dressing up, putting out fires, making their own emergency vehicles and even being hairdressers for the day. 

As well as this, the children are also encouraged to use kind hands and have loved decorating some kind hands of their own to always remind them. We used the parachute this week too which the children really enjoyed. 

Another busy week in Foundation!! The children have been enjoying all the Autumn activities and getting stuck right in. The activities have been creating great discussion and some inquisitive questions.

The children have learned some new sounds this week (g,o,c,k) which they are really enjoying. They love spotting things that start with their new sound! 

Next week we will be looking at the topic People Who Help us. We have some amazing activities planned and we even have some visitors to come and see us. 

On Monday 25th September we held an information workshop for parents and carers to tell them about how literacy is taught in Foundation Stage and how they can help at home. Please see a copy of the presentation below and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

The children have enjoyed investigating some sunflowers and even found a little bug which was called a green shield bug. The children loved using the magnifying glasses to take a closer look at the animal and the different parts of the flower. It created great discussions and plenty of questions! Some children loved the sunflowers so much that they had a go at painting the sunflowers. They looked closer at the different colours and created their paintings. It has been another great day in Foundation!

The children have settled in really well at school and have enjoyed exploring all the different areas. Such as the wood kitchen, mark making on the whiteboards, bouncing around outside on the bouncy hoppers and experimenting with magnetic fishing rods. We can't wait to see what the children achieve in the next year to come!
