Welcome to Foundation Stage
We have really enjoyed meeting you, during your visits to school and can’t wait to get started in September.
Everyone had lots of fun exploring in our new classrooms and getting to know one another. We hope you have started to make some new friends and are looking forward to seeing them in September.
Our topic during the first half term is ‘Once Upon A Time,’ where we will explore a variety of different traditional tales. We will be comparing our lives to the lives of the characters in the books and talking about similarities and differences. There will be lots of opportunity to role play and use the story language that we have learnt.
Our writing focus will be learning to write our names and other words in the context of the stories we are reading. We will all be given a reading book and key words following the parents reading meeting.
In numeracy we will be working on recognising numbers and being able to match the corresponding amount to its number. We will be doing lots of counting aloud and using different voices and actions to engage the children. Accurate one to one correspondence will also be a focus of our learning and we will practise this in lots of different ways.
In the outdoor area we will be learning how use all the different equipment including the sand pit, mud kitchen and bike track.
We will be sure to take lots of pictures to show you the fun we will be getting up to, so be sure to regularly check the website.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask Mrs Sinclair or Miss McClare
