Welcome to Foundation Stage


Mrs Sinclair and Miss Smith are the class teachers and Mrs Tate and Mrs Heald are the teaching assistants. We would like to welcome you to the Foundation Stage at Ryecroft Infant School.


This half term our topic will be ‘Creepy Crawlies!’ We will be exploring many texts with minibeasts as the characters for example, ‘The hungry caterpillar,’ ‘The very busy spider,’ and ‘The bad tempered lady bird.’ We will also be looking at a selection of non-fiction texts and learning facts about different minibeasts. In our writing we will be learning to write simple stories with minibeasts as the characters and writing our own simple non-fiction texts.


The children will be lucky enough to go on a minibeast hunt to the juniors wild life area. This will be a fantastic chance for children to see examples of minibeasts up close and learn about where they live.


On Wednesday 8th June we will be going on a whole school visit to ‘The English Institute of Sport,’ to take part in our annual sports day. Here the children will have the opportunity to practise all the different skills that they have learnt in PE this year.


In Mathematics the children will continue to build on their problem solving skills. We have lots of exciting lessons planned such as who can make the best ramp for their car to travel the furthest distance. We will continue to practise solving one more and one less problems and counting on and back to find the answer.


The children really enjoyed being creative last half term for our ‘Picture This’ topic. Some fantastic work was produced which was of a very high standard. This work will be display during the picture this exhibition this half term. Don’t miss it!


As part of our circle time and dinosaur school sessions we will be talking about changes and new beginnings to prepare the children for their transition into year one. We wish all the children a happy summer holidays and all the best of the luck in the future.

Foundation Mud Kitchen

Lego Workshop Day - 24.05.16

Sponsored Obstacle Course


Our sponsored obstacle course was a huge success! The children designed and made suggestions as to what activities they wanted.


The children all participated and were very enthusiastic. Cheering each other on and being good sports!


Thank you so much for your generosity for this sponsored event. The children are looking forward to receiving their mud kitchen soon.


Stay & Play - May 2016


‘Stay and Play’ for the summer term has been another huge success. Many parents/ carers attended and as you can see from the photographs we all had a fantastic time. This term the focus was being creative and we were really impressed by all your imaginative and creative pieces of art work, especially the collaborative junk model castles and decorative shields.


Congratulations to Luke Rodgers and his mum for winning the raffle prize and very kindly sharing your sweets!!!!!


Parent/Carer comment sheets can be found in class if you would like to give feedback on the ‘Stay and Play’ sessions we have offered this year. Please feel free to make suggestions for future sessions.

Thank you for your continued support

Teddy Bear Picnic


We had a fun afternoon having a lovely picnic with our teddy bears. We were lucky that the sun came out just in time so that we could sit outside. We had some cheese, cucumber and delicious buns. Afterwards we played lots of fun games. Some of our teddies also took part in our parachute game; we think they liked it a lot. It was a great chance for the children to discuss why their teddy bears are so special. It was lovely to hear some of the stories behind them.
