Year R

Welcome to Foundation Stage (Class 1 and 2)

Welcome to Foundation Stage.

This is our first year in school, when we learn all about school life and routines and how much fun learning can be. We are making friends and learning how to work together as a team. Our topics change every two weeks and include “Autumn” “Pirates” “Space” “Superheroes” and several topics based around books. We are very lucky to get to learn both outside and inside. We have a wide range of experiences, including food tasting, visitors, Forest School, welly walks and a trip at the end of the year.

Foundation Stage is the beginning of our phonics journey. We will go from recognising sounds and simple words to reading books and writing our own sentences. Reading five times a week at home will really help us with this, and we can work as a team to win a prize as a class. We should also practise reading and writing our sounds to speed up our progress towards becoming confident readers and writers. We are looking forward to working with you all throughout this year. Don’t forget, if you have any questions about anything in Foundation Stage please ask us at the door or leave a message at the Office.
