Foundation Blog

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.

Welcome Back, Red Class

This week, Red class have been enjoying our new areas in the classroom. We have seen a lot of children learning in the role play, camp site. The children have thought about what they would need to take if they went camping, some have written lists.


We have loved hearing about the adventures the children went on over half term, from visiting grandparents to several children going to the London Eye. The children decided to write their holiday news and I have been very impressed with their indepedent writing skills.


In PE the children explored skipping and hopscotch to practice various jumping skills. They had to think about jumping from one foot to two.


Blue Class – Thinking about our holiday

We have had a lovely time this week sharing our holiday news with our Learning Partner.  We then stood up and talked about our partners news, to check we were listening!

The children then wrote or typed about their news.  The children who chose to type their news coped very well with the capital letters on the keyboard and some are becoming familiar with the space bar, return key and full stops.  We even had laptops out, to see if the children could log in independently and use the sensor mouse pad (it was quite tricky!) but they enjoyed working on them.

We have been enjoying the fresh air, gardening, sweeping and generally playing and exploring.

We are thinking about capacity next week, so we are praying for sunshine, as tidying up is much easier outside after all the investigations!!
