FS1 (Nursery)

Governors At St Albert The Great

Welcome to Foundation Stage 1.

This term in FS1 the children have been exploring nursery rhymes and some traditional stories.  We have been using both our indoor and outdoor areas to develop our learning in all areas of the curriculum, they have particularly enjoyed our mud kitchen and garden learning area.  We enjoyed science week with the whole school, and had a great time experimenting. We tested materials to see which would make a strong bridge for the 3 Billy Goats Gruff to cross the river, and looked at floating and sinking, finding the best material to make a raft for the Troll. We made a volcano eruption, launched fizzy rockets and explored what happens when making bread and how yeast makes it rise. We also we experimented with the different things we could make bubbles with and how big we could make bubbles!!  It was a fun packed week! We are now learning all about the Easter story.

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, Mrs Lewis and Mrs Coot
