Governors At St Albert The Great

Welcome to Foundation Stage 1

Welcome to our FS1 Class. In EYFS we plan for the children’s learning by closely observing their interests and level of development, then using these observations and interactions, we plan activities to meet their needs and encourage them to meet their next steps in their development. We have an amazing indoor and outdoor space which allows us to cover all areas of the EYFS curriculum. We believe that children learn best through play and so play is at the centre of our curriculum. We use a combination of Adult Led and Child Led activities to encourage the children to explore, problem solve, develop their imagination and learn new skills. Although we have an ‘umbrella’ topic each half term, this is not set in stone, and changes based on the children’s interests and

We love exploring our fantastic outdoor space, not only in our EYFS unit, but also the wider school grounds. Our lovely Spinney is a great place for a story and play while surrounded by beautiful nature. We also like visiting our school prayer garden where we have spent some time during our collective worship being in God’s presence.


This is our first term in Nursery, and we have spent the first few weeks settling in, getting to know each other and making new friends.

Our topic this half term is ‘all about Me ‘ and we thinking about what makes us special, our families and what we like to do. This also links nicely with our RE topic this term.

the children are getting to know our daily routine and enjoy things like Collective Worship together and using our balance bikes as part of our PE.

A few reminders:

Please ensure your child has an appropriate coat every day, sunhat if its hot, with sun cream applied.

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
