Welcome to Foundation!
There are two Reception classes - RT and RC.
RT's class teacher is Mrs Turner (EYFS co-ordinator) and their TA is Miss Follis.
RC's class teacher is Miss Cullotty and their TA is Mrs Moore.
Mrs Kelly and Miss Pearson both work with lots of different children from both classes to help them with lots of different activities.
Mrs Green is our speech and language therapist who works with some children during the week.
Mrs Tew is in RC Tuesday mornings to teach science and in RT Tuesday afternoons.
PE will now be on Friday mornings with our sports coach Dan. Please make sure the children have the correct kit. If they do not, they will not be able to participate in our PE activities.
Here you will be able to find out about the recent projects and activities we have been involved in.
Later on this term the living eggs will join us. Look out for exciting pictures.
Our inspire workshop is on Thursday 13th February at 1:30p.m. Please let your child’s class teacher that you are joining them for the afternoon.
Your child is also invited to dress as a Superhero on this day.
Look at us reading and writing!
We can read and write captions. We can write CVC words.
Superhero challenge day
On Thursday 13th February we are having our challenge day. The children are invited to dress up as a Superhero and we will solve lots of challenges throughout the morning and completely inspire workshop in the afternoon.
This term we are being Superheroes! So far have developed our pincer grips by defusing bombs, completed a Superhero obstacle course, used magnets to investigate and have made super healthy fruit kebabs.
Christmas production “The nativity”
The children were brilliant in the production. They spoke with clear voices, sang well and acted in front of a large audience of friends and adults. Later the same day the children participated in the Christingle service.
Wyre Forest visit
We traveled by bus to the Wyre Forest on 2nd December. We explored the forest and made reindeer decorations out of forest materials that we found. We had The Stickman story around the camp fire and toasted marshmallows. We also found the Gruffalo’s child in the forest. It was a busy day!
The children have been parking their bikes in the numbered parking spaces. This activity developed their gross motor skills and number recognition.
Reception have been exploring different shapes. They have been exploring what different shapes they could find and have been sorting shapes by shape or size.
We are developing our pencil grip so that we can hold writing equipment correctly to form letters accurately.
Now the weather is turning cooler, could you please encourage your child to practise to fasten their coat or jacket. We are pleased that all children can put their coats and jackets on independently, so the next step is being able to fasten them.
Thank you for your support.
Every week all the children will go outside with their designated adult. Children will be taking part in activities such as planting, observing growth, building, enjoying mud kitchen activities and experimenting with how water travels.
The children are accessing the reading area, using story spoons, googly eye I spy's, story props and the listening centres. Sharing stories with your child is a special time and is a crucial part of them learning to love books.
