Welcome to the blog for our foundation classes. The year group blogs are a great communication tool. Teachers will be posting news, photographs, details of homework, examples of work, and anything they wish to share with their pupils and parents. Please speak to your class teacher if you have any question, feedback or concerns.

Additional Teaching Support
Our children usually start school, aged 4, into the Foundation Stage Classes. We believe that they should have a slow and steady start to school so that they can become confident in their surroundings and their teachers, feel safe and supported by the routines and valued as individuals to learn and grow in every way. The children enjoy their learning which follows the guidance in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We offer the children a wide range of stimulating and enriched experiences, both indoors and outdoors, so they can develop their skills in an interesting context.
We are very keen to hear about your child’s achievements outside of school.
If your child is a member of a club and they are awarded a medal/certificate/badge etc, then we would love to hear about it.
You can help us by;
- photocopying the certificate for our display in the Dining Room
- Bring in a photo of your child competing or holding their badge/certificate/medal/trophy.
Please ask your child to hand it in to their class teacher.
We will be displaying them all year, so don’t worry about finding something straight away.
We hope you are looking forward to seeing the children in their Christmas Play Tuesday or Wednesday.
A few end of term reminders;
Library books will be collected in on Friday 11th December.
Home Learning will be collected in on Wednesday 9th December and returned in January.
Reading Books will be collected in on Wednesday 16th December and returned in January.
PE bags will be sent home at the end of this week, please do check the contents still fit and everything is named.
Many Thanks for your support this term, Miss Lewis and I appreciate it and we are looking forward to the Spring Term.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
Today, Red and Blue class noticed it was very windy outside.
Some children decided to make material kites to see what happened. They held the kites up in the air and watched as the wind blew them.
Billy-Joe noticed “It blowing”
Sammy-Joe said “It the wind”
Autman “It flying like a bird”
Rajib said “When it go forward it go windy”
The children noticed the wind was making the material fly around and watched to see what happened as they ran with it.
We decided to add a washing like to see if the material would move if no one touched it. They were interested to see that it still moved and flapped about.
This week, Red and Blue have been getting ready for Christmas.
On Tuesday morning, the children came in to find a Christmas table had appeared! Each day 1 child will open a door on our advent calendar, and another child will add a bauble to the tree. We have been watching in excitement to see what appears behind each door.
We have been rehearsing for our Christmas play each day. The children are remembering the lyrics for the songs and have been showing their enthusiasm! We wont say any more so it is a surprise! If your child has been sent home with words, please help them to learn their lines!
Earlier this week, each child chose a decoration to make for Christmas. Some chose to make a Christmas tree, some chose a snow man, others chose Father Christmas! We chose 3 from each class to be displayed in the hall, these children put them on the tree in Meeting with Mrs Cooper. The decorations are on display in class and will be coming home for Christmas.

Just to remind you, Red and Blue class Library day is on Friday every week.
Please ensure your child has their library book in their bag on this day ready to be changed.
Our School Councillors have spent some of their lunchtime sorting the lost property box.
It’s overflowing with lovely body warmers, trainers, school jumpers and cardigans.
A message from our councillors – “please name your clothing and if you buy second hand clothing, remember to cross the old name out and put your child’s name in, thank you.”
To help us prepare for Christmas, could you please help Red and Blue Class by sending in;
- Washed plastic milk bottle tops
- Red and green wool
- Toilet roll tubes
Please return any spare pants, trousers, shorts or skirts as we are running out.
In the outdoor classroom, we would love photos of your children cooking or eating at home. We believe that it will encourage their role play if they make links to home and their experiences.
Please hand any photos to Miss Lewis or Mrs Barwin
In the EYFS, we are looking to improve the outdoor classroom. It has been turned into a home with a kitchen. We would really like to have packaging from food, such as boxes, empty tins, (no sharp edges) containers etc in other languages.
If you have any would you please pass them onto Miss Lewis or Mrs Barwin.
Thank you very much
