Hello and welcome to Foundation!
Class Teacher: Mr. McCann and Mrs. Sammels
Teaching Assistants: Mrs. Hargeaves and Mr. Marriott
Support Assistants: Mrs. Wood
A huge hello to everyone joining our Foundation class for the 2020/21 academic year. We know that starting school can be tricky for families and children but we want to reassure you that we are here to support you.
Reassuring your child and promoting school as a positive step will give your child confidence and will support them when building initial relationships within school.
The Foundation Team will naturally continue to offer this support once your child has started school.
Our first Autumn Term will be all about being 'Creative and Colourful' with children spending lots of time getting to know each other and expressing themselves. Children will have lots of opportunities to expressive themselves through art and design while developing the fine motor skills needed to support their writing.
The first text we will be looking at as a class will be 'The Rainbow Fish'. If you don't have a copy at home their are plenty of versions on YouTube to share with your child.
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 and counting objects to ten.
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.
