Welcome to the Foundation Stage
We have all been very busy starting our new year and we are happy to welcome new friends some of which are now staying with us for the full day.
Please remember we do PE on Friday morning ,we are happy for the children to arrive at school dressed ready for their lesson as it begins immediately after the Celebration Worship.
Children are allowed to bring water bottles into school which can be refilled during the course of the day from the class water fountain.
During this Spring Term we will be learning all about Animals which will be fun and exciting.We will be celebrating our Christian Festivals both in school and at church .In February we will be learning all about Chinese new year.
Our role play will be a pet shop which will feature many pets for the children to enjoy .
Thank you to all those parents and carers who hear their children read regularly .In Foundation Stage 1 it would be beneficial for your children if you could read with them at home for a short period each evening.
We are encouraging children to understand the text and retell the narrative ,to realize that print carries meaning and we read from left to right.They will begin to hear and identify sounds in the words.You can help by encouraging them to read the same book more than once and by asking them questions about the story, setting or characters. They could even draw a picture or make something from the story or perhaps you could help them retell their own story which we would be delighted for them to share with us.
We would also like to encourage you to practice counting and using numbers and naming shapes. with your children.This can be done in a fun way by using familiar songs and rhymes and on shopping trips.
Thank you .
If you have any concerns please feel you can come to speak to the Foundation Staff before or after school.
