Transition through Foundation Stage: From Birth to Five
When our youngest children enter the reception class, they begin the final year of Foundation Stage ( Birth to Five). The Prime areas of Learning within the Foundation Stage are Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Communication and Language and Physical Development. Specific areas of learning are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive arts and Design. Please refer to "What to expect throughout the Year" for further details.
We work closely with our feeder settings and with parents to ensure that any gaps in learning are identified and addressed on entry to school. This year, we have prioritised mathematics and writing as areas for specific, focussed intervention for individual children. September 2015 sees the introduction of a new baseline assessment which we will use, alongside the information which you give us about your child, to inform our priorities for the coming year.
Welcome to our Foundation Stage Class
Welcome back after the half term break.
I hope you all had a relaxing time and are ready for an exciting Term 4! Our topic this term is 'Spring'.
We will be spending time exploring the 4 seasons and different types of weather. We will be observing changes in the environment, life cycles, planting and growing. We will be having some eggs in our classroom to hatch out into chicks and will also be enjoying a trip to a farm to see the baby lambs.
This term we will be continuing to learn our Phase 3 phonics. We will continue bringing sound cards home to practice, reading books, library books and high frequency words to learn.
Within our classroom this term, there will be a garden centre and cafe role play area, along with an electronics exploratory area where we undo the screws to see what is inside.
Our topic is always led by the children's own interests and ideas so we are excited to see where our topic will lead !
Our Christian value this term is 'Forgiveness'. Our Learn to Learn value is 'Reflection'.
You will need to bring your book bag, water bottle and reading books, every day to help with your learning.
You will also need your PE kit; you can leave that here all term. Please can you bring a labelled warm waterproof coat, hat and gloves as the weather has turned chilly. We like to go out in all weathers!
