Foundation 1

Welcome to Foundation 1 - Mrs Chambers and Miss Dyson

This year the class teacher is Mrs Chambers and our Nursery Nurse is Miss Dyson. We are always very hands on with our learning!

Autumn 2 2017

Our topic for this half term is 'Winter- Life in the freezer'. We will be looking closely at polar environments and the people, animals and plants that live there.

Our Maths focus continues is number recognition and we will be exploring basic 2D shapes. As we move closer to Christmas we will be working with metallic colours.

Our Phonics focus is alliteration and rhyme. We will be thinking about how words sound and the letters that make up familiar words such as our names.

We will be continuing to practice reading and writing our names.

Christmas Craft Session 2017

The focus of our 2nd Parent Session was Christmas Crafts. We enjoyed making lolly pop christmas trees, rudolf bags, star lanterns, christmas pudding cards, snowflake buns and writing letters to santa.

Autumn 1 2017

Our topic this term is All About Me. For lots of our children this has been their first experience in school. We have worked hard to get to know each other, feel happy and be settled at school. We have been learning all about ourselves, our emotions and our family.

In Maths we have focused on the numbers 1-10 and the colours of the rainbow.

In Phonics we have been listening to and thinking about environmental sounds.

Open Classroom

In October we enjoyed our first open classroom of the year. Children took the opportunity to give their grown ups and siblings a guided tour of our nursery environment. Have a look at our wonderful pictures below.

Halloween Story and Rhyme Session 2017

Our first parent session for this year was a huge success! We enjoyed learning some new Halloween themed rhymes before sharing the "Room on the Broom" story. Take a look at our photographs below.
