Hello and welcome to Foundation!
Class Teacher: Mr. McCann
Teaching Assistants: Mrs. Hargeaves, Mr. Marriott and Miss. Nash
This term all of our learning will be focussing around animals, both on land and under the sea. During the first Summer Term, we will be focussing on land animals and learning about the animals that live in the UK and then those who live in different places across the world. Following this, we will be looking at all the wonderful animals that live under the sea.
The first text we will be looking at as a class will be 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and will be followed by looking at non-fiction texts about the animals that interest us.
Children will begin to learn the basics of Reading and Writing through Read Write Inc. More information on Read Write Inc can be found here
Children's Maths Learning will follow the White Rose Maths scheme of learning. As part of this, children will be getting to learn about numbers through the Numberblocks.
You can support your child's learning by getting to know the Numberblocks, investigating capacity and learning shapes at home.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions in place, the Foundation classroom will run slightly different than usual. Children will be regularly washing their hands and this will be a focal point for the first week at school. Alongside this, children will be unable to access resources that are unable to be thoroughly cleaned regularly. We will be constantly following Government guidance and advice from the Early Years team so that your child can access as many different types of provision as possible.
