Year R

Welcome to Foundation Stage (Class 1 and 2)

We are really looking forward to introducing you to life in school. We have lots of exciting topics planned including; Under the Sea, All about Me, Pirates, Space, Dinosaurs and Farms to name but a few! We change topics every 2 or 3 weeks to keep everything fresh and new. Topics are displayed on classroom doors so please do send in or share anything you have related to what we are learning about!

During our time in Foundation Stage we do lots of learning through play. We will learn our phonics sounds for letters of the alphabet, which in turn help us to learn to read and write. We will use Numberblocks to help us learn about mathematics and understand the properties of numbers. As we learn to read it is vital that they read 5 times a week at home and if this is entered into their reading record this will be entered into a whole school reading challenge. 

We are very lucky to have a wonderful outdoor learning area which we will use for both our number work and topic work – weather permitting!  We will need to have a pair of wellies in school to ensure we can make the most of this opportunity.

If you have any questions throughout the year please do not hesitate to ask.

Mrs Green, Mrs Harris and Mr Adam
