Foundation 2019 - 2020
The Foundation staff are a happy, close-knit team who endeavour to make the children's transition into school an enjoyable experience.
Through the Foundation Stage curriculum, we give children the opportunity to learn from first hand experience by participating in a wide range of activities linked to the 7 areas of learning and development.
The 3 prime areas are:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas - Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
We like to work in partnership with families and carers to encourage the children to become self-confident and independent learners.
Are there any achievements that your child is proud of that you would like to share with us at school? Please send a message via class Dojo.
This term our topic is 'Under the Sea'
This week we have been reading the stories 'Rainbow Fish and 'Sharing a Shell'.
Rainbow Fish is a beautiful fish who finds friendship and happiness when he learns to share.
Sharing a Shell is about three little sea creatures who end up sharing a home together in a rockpool. One day two of the friends argue and they all end up living on their own. A big storm arrives and destroys their homes. They realise that being friends is more important and decided to share a large shell together.
In our class we are great friends and we love to share!
We have also been looking at different types of Sea Creatures.
Here are some of the facts we have learned this week.
