Welcome to our Foundation Stage!

Welcome back! We are now in our last half term and ready to jump straight back into another exciting topic, as well as beginning the transition to Year 1 and Reception! This half term our topic is 'Amazing Animals', where we will have the opportunity to explore a range of great activities, ending with a trip to Knowsley Safari Park!

Farm animals will introduce this topic where we will be looking at classic stories such as 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'The Little Red Hen'. We will then be exploring under the sea with stories including 'The Rainbow Fish' and finishing our topic with zoo animals. Books to support this will include 'The Tiger that came to Tea' and 'Monkey Puzzle'.  

Please see our curriculum overview for more details. 

Home Learning

All children in the Foundation Stage will continue to receive a weekly homework challenge. These will be given out on a Friday afternoon, to be returned to school the following Wednesday. Homework in the Foundation Stage is designed to be fun, active and achievable. If you have any questions or concerns about homework please see your child's class teacher, who will be happy to help. 

Reading Books

Please ensure that your child has their reading book and reading record in school every day. We will ensure that your child’s reading book is changed regularly, as and when they are ready for a new one. Your child will have the opportunity to read on a 1:1 basis with an adult at least once a week. 

Library Visits 

This half term we have opened our new school library. This is very exciting and we are looking forward to lots of library visits. Please make sure you return your borrowed books so you can choose a new one each week. 

Updates

Please keep up to date with newsletters and the website calendar for important diary dates as there will be lots happening in Foundation Stage this half term! Also make sure you keep an eye on our class blog below to see regular updates about what the children have been doing.
