Welcome to our Foundation Stage!

Welcome back to our final term of the year! This is one of the most exciting terms with transition days, school trips and so much more!

In Reception, we are diving into the marvellous world of minibeasts and growing. We are starting with one of our most favourite books to support this topic - Superworm! We will be linking areas around the classroom to support our learning and understanding of minibeasts and will be using Superworm in our literacy inputs to support our goals highlighted on the curriculum overview. We will also begin looking at numbers beyond 10 and practising a range of skills within maths, using larger numbers and quantities. 

We are also very happy to welcome Salford Red Devils back to work with us on our physical activity and skills. Each Wednesday your child will need to come to school in a P.E. kit ready to exercise. We are also lucky to have a Sports Coach work with us each Friday, so please can children come in their P.E. kit on Friday's also. We are also accepting reading bags on any given day ready to change reading books as often as needed.

In Nursery, we will be exploring different animals and their habitats through our topic "Amazing Animals!" We will be looking at and comparing different habitats and learning about the animals that live there. Some of the places we will explore are Africa, the North pole, under the sea and on the farm! We are starting this theme off with the story Handa's surprise with a big focus on Africa and her journey to see her friend Akeyo.

In Maths the children will be introduced to addition and subtraction as well as problem solving. We will also revisit pattern and positional language. This half term we start Read Write Inc phonics where the children are introduced to letters and sounds and a big focus on oral blending. We will continue to run Phase 1 alongside this. 

We will continue our Fine Motor Monday's, Wednesday Welly Walks and Fitness Friday's. The children will need to come to school in their PE kits for this, ready to exercise. 

We are very lucky to have Salford Red Devils working with us again on Wednesdays, where the children will take part in Multiskills.

Just a reminder, homework will continue to be set on Tapestry for both Nursery and Reception. This will be uploaded each Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. 

Thank you as always for your continued support.
