Welcome to our Foundation Stage!

Nursery welcomes Miss Swindell who is very excited to be joining the team and working with our children.  Miss Swindell will be working alongside Miss Evans, Mrs Allwood and Ms Tweedale. Reception continues to have Miss Mckernan as class teacher supported by Miss Kelly, Mr Massey and Zozo. We are also excited to have Miss Lowde who will be working in our Nursery as a student teacher. 

We were very busy last half term settling in our children into their new classes and we are so pleased with how everyone has joined in and are now ready to jump into Autumn 2. 

This half term our topic is "Wooly, Winter, Wonderland"! We will be observing seasonal changes in the environment by experimenting with ice, the best materials to keep us warm and practising how to zip and unzip our own coats. We will also continue to build relationships with our friends by sharing and playing games and build on our phonics and maths knowledge with daily sessions. We remind parents how important it is for children to arrive to school on time as learning starts promptly.  

Home Learning

This half term all children in the Foundation Stage will receive a weekly homework challege. These will be given out on Friday afternoons to be returned to school the following Wednesday. Homework in the Foundation Stage is designed to be fun, active and achievable, if you have any questions or concerns about homework please see your child's class teacher who will be happy to help. 

Reading Books

Please ensure that your child has their reading book and reading record in school every day. We will ensure that your child’s reading book is changed regularly as and when they are ready for a new one. Your child will have the opportunity to read on a 1:1 basis with an adult at least once a week. 


Please keep up to date with newsletters and the website calendar for important diary dates as there will be lots happening in Foundation Stage this half term! Also my sure you keep an eye on our class blog below to see regular updates about what the children have been doing.
