Foundation

Welcome to Foundation 
 
The class teacher is Mrs Watts 
The class TAs are Mrs Palmer (all day) and Mrs Amissale (am only)
 
 
This half term in Foundation we focus on the children getting to know each other, the adults who are working with them and daily routines. We learn the names of the people in our class and the adults in our school. We spend time learning about the different areas of the classroom and outdoor area and how we use different equipment and resources in these areas. As the children gain confidence we start to introduce sessions where we learn skills such as counting and sorting in our Maths sessions and beginning to learn sounds and how to put these together to read words in our RWInc sessions. After our skills sessions we have lots of time to apply these skills in our environment as we continue to build friendships and enjoy learning and discovering together.
In our RE sessions we will be exploring the topic of 'Beginnings', where we consider the question- 'What makes us precious?'
Each week the children will bring home a Foundation newsletter so that you can see what we have been learning that week.
