Welcome to Foundation Stage 1.

The children have come back after the Christmas holiday’s eager to get learning! This term our Talk for Writing book is ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.  We have been learning the story and using actions to help us remember the words.  We are extending our learning by creating our own stories using the same repetitive pattern as the Bear Hunt story. The children have really enjoyed this.   

We have started our ‘Daily mile’ in Nursery! each day, rain or shine, we are out running around the KS1 playground keeping fit and healthy! We are not ye running an actual mile but are covering over half a mile and running continuously for around 8 minutes! we hope to increase this to 10 by the end of the spring term. 

We have also been enjoying the change of weather! The children have loved playing in the snow and exploring what happens when the temperature drops outside! we have had some great experiments looking at what happens to snow when we bring it inside, and what happens to water when we lave it outside!

In RE we discussing celebrations and our Local Church. 

A few reminders:

Please ensure your child has a coat every day.

Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle each day.

Please make sure ALL uniform is named.

If you have any questions, please talk to a member of staff.


Kind Regards,  The FS1 team – Mrs Turp and Mrs Lewis
