We have a lovely area for learning where the children are able to access the classroom and outside area during child-initiated learning. We access the outside area during all weathers so please ensure that wellies and a waterproof coat is provided. 


We do PE once a week.


We ask that you try and read at home with your child and record this in their reading record diaries. 


We follow development matters, first of all focussing on the prime areas of development, before working on the specific areas and then the Early Learning Goals. Practical, fun and engaging task are planned for the children to access during their play and when working with an adult. 


I hope you have all had a fun and exciting summer holiday and are ready to start your next chapter, learning new and exciting skills.

"Marvellous me"


This term our topic is "Marvellous Me" 


This term we will be using the following books within our learning:









Foundation Topic Web 2021-2022

Curriculum map 2022-23



In Foundation we reward children in many different ways for many different reasons.


The main way is with a reward chart. Each child has a 10 frame reward chart which they stick stickers onto. They can collect stickers for a variety of things and once they have collected all 10, they can choose a present from my present box. The reward chart then starts again. 

We have found this way of rewarding very successful and has even provided children with extra learning opportunities as they enjoying counting how many stickers they have and how many more they need to collect. 


We have also been using dojo awards which is a way of collecting points as a class in order to receive a class reward. More information on this will follow.
