Foundation Year

Foundation Overview

Welcome back to you all. We hope that you all had a lovely time celebrating Christmas and New Year with your families. We would like to say a huge thank you for the kind gifts and cards that we received.

In F2 our topic for this half term is ‘Why do zebra’s have stripes? ’ and we will be investigating African animals and comparing the local environment with the African grasslands. We will also be investigating patterns, by looking at African material and jewellery. We plan to investigate African drumming and each child will make a drum. We will also be creating pictures and models using a wide range of skills. We will be inviting parents in to school to share some of the learning on Friday 15th February at 9.00am.

In F1 they are welcoming new children into the setting, and we look forward to forming positive relationships with these new families. Their  topic for this term is ‘How many colours in a rainbow?’ The children will be exploring lots of wonderful colourful activities. They will use the story of Elmer the Elephant as a starting point.

F1 will be inviting parents in to share some of the learning on Tuesday 12th Feb at 9am for morning parents and 12.20pm for afternoon parents.

Many thanks to all our parents in Foundation for your help in supporting your child’s learning at home – and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
