Foundation Stage

Welcome to Foundation


Thank you for all of the lovely gifts that we received at the end of term.  It has been an absolute pleasure working with you all, have an amazing summer and we are looking forward to seeing you all as Year 1's!




***We are very pleased to announce that we have appointed a teacher for the Chicks Class. 

Mrs Jones will be coming to join our team.***


Mrs Stone is the class teacher in the Ducklings and Mrs Jones is the class teacher in the Chicks.

 Miss Catt and Mrs Murray are working with us this year as well. .

Mrs Hathaway is with us on a Wednesday.


Term 1 starts for the children on -

Wednesday 6th September at 8.45am.

Please come to school wearing your new school uniform, remember to bring your book bag and your PE Kit.

You will need a pair of wellington boots to leave at school and will need to bring a coat to keep you warm.

Should the summer sunshine still be around, you will also need to bring your sunhat with you. 

Please can adults make arrangements to collect children from the gates at 12noon. 


Thursday 7th September we will be staying for lunch.  Please can parents make arrangements to collect  at 1.15pm


Friday 8th September - we are in school every day until 3pm.


Please bear with us at collection times, it will take us a while to get to know faces.  We will try our hardest to speed things up.  If someone other than you is collecting your child please make sure you let a member of staff know.  If it will be a regular arrangement please send us a photo of the person to help us.



OUR FIRST TOPIC  'Do you like ketchup on your cornflakes?' 

We will be spending time getting to know each other and finding out about each other. 

This will include spending time looking at holiday scrapbooks.  Please can all children bring their scrapbook to school on Wednesday. 


A Sharing reading book will be sent home along with a reading record for parents to complete.  

Children are expected to read at least 4 times each week.  Anyone who reads at least 4 times during the week will receive a special sticker.  Children who receive a sticker each week for the whole term will receive a certificate at the end of term from Mrs Tout.


Homework will be sent home on a Tuesday to be completed and handed back in on the following Monday.  These will be challenges to keep you all busy at home.  Please support us with these tasks to help your child extend their learning.
