Welcome to the Foundation Stage page...

Keep checking back for update and what we get up to throughout the year....

Having lots of fun in Foundation.

We put some polar bears in water and froze them, then we waited to see how long it would take for them to melt in our classroom.  It took all afternoon!

We had a great time joining in with the Chinese New Year celebrations. We made dragon masks and did some dragon dancing.

The Ladybirds had so much fun at Wolds Gymnastics Club this week and can't wait for their next visit.

WOW! What a busy and exciting start to a new school year the Foundation Stage children had!

They all have settled into school life really well and have made us all super proud.

We've had lots of fun exploring the school and the children especially loved going onto the 'Big Playground'.

Below are some photographs of some of the things we have done so far, including our lovely end to the first half term with our 'Happiness Day!' 


The Foundation Stage children love having their weekly visit from the Year 2 reading buddies. Having stories read to them by the older children is very exciting.

This half term we have been thinking all about celebrations. We made firework pictures on the Ipads, created greetings cards for our families and made flags to show how people in Denmark celebrate their birthdays. Now we are in December we will be moving onto Christmas celebrations... something the children and staff are all very excited about!

We have been very busy in Maths over the past few weeks. The children are very much enjoying learning all about numbers and space, shape and measure. Look at all of those happy mathematicians! 

The children had lots of fun gardening. They planted Autumn bulbs and investigated how well other plants were growing in the chilly weather. 

The children became very creative during outdoor learning. They used items that can be found in the natural surroundings, such as, sticks, stones, acorns etc to create some very imaginative designs!

We've had a busy week in Foundation Stage this week and have welcomed some special visitors.

First, the Police Community Support Officers came to tell us all about road safety and keeping ourselves safe.  We even got to try on different police hats and explored the police van.

Then Tesco came to tell us about healthy foods, we got to try so much fruit - it was all very tasty!
