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.

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.

Launching our new topic

This week we launched our new topic, ‘Healthy Living.’ We have had lots of fun looking at different types of healthy and unhealthy food. We also made our own healthy plate; we chose different types of food before cutting them out and sticking them onto our plate. On Wednesday we tried different fruit and vegetables including: pomegranate, melon, grapes, pepper and celery. We discussed their taste, smell, look and texture. We have also had lots of fun outside drawing fruit and vegetables on the playground, writing healthy food menus and making different types of food with playdough. If anyone has any spare playdough or would be willing to make some, please could you donate it to Red and Blue class.

Thank you and have a lovely weekend!

A huge thank you for supporting Reception in the selling of reindeer food.  We have the last 10 bags available.  Please pop and see me if you would like one.  It’s £0.50 per bag.

Thank you

 

Reindeer Food – 3pm Wednesday 18th.

On Wednesday 18th December from 3pm, Reception will be selling reindeer food.  It will be in little pouches, selling for 50p.  We will be under the main shelter on the playground.

All Reception children will be bringing theirs home on Thursday, so this is mainly aimed at younger siblings and Year 1 and 2 children.

Many thanks for your support.

Donating rucksacks and lunchboxes

Hi

As part of our push on writing outside, if you have old rucksacks (adults or children’s) or lunch bags that you no longer need, would you please consider donating them to Reception.  The plan is to fill them with paper and pens, so that the children can write at any opportunity.

Likewise, if you have any pens/envelopes/felt tips/highlighters etc,  we would happily have them to replenish our stocks.

Many Thanks

Posting Christmas Cards

Hi

As part of our links in the local community, we would like to walk to the Post Box on Cell Barnes Lane to post our handmade Christmas cards.  If you would like your child to experience addressing an envelope and posting their card themselves, please supply us with a stamp, first or second class is fine.  Please hand it in, no later than Friday 6th December.

Thank you

Old Technology please

Hi

If you have any old technology that you would like to donate to Red and Blue Class, could you please pop it in.  We want to take apart things like calculators, phones, cameras, keyboards etc.

Many Thanks
