Welcome to our Foundation Stage!

Welcome back! We are now in Spring 2 and ready to jump straight back into another exciting topic. This half term our topic is 'Castles, Cars and Cardboard' where we will have opportunities to explore the following:

Observe the changes in plants over time - we are linking castles to Jack and the Beanstalk and growing a variety of different plants to understand what they need to grow, as well as taking responsibility for looking after our own plants! :)

Using our imaginations and creative skills to join materials together and build big scale pieces using cardboard boxes

Read lots of fiction and non fiction books relating to plants and the environment 

Continuing to explore our new Forest School area.

And much much more! Please see our curriculum overview for more details. 

Home Learning

All children in the Foundation Stage will continue to receive a weekly homework challege. These will be given out on Friday afternoons 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. 


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.
