Welcome to Foundation 1
Mrs Jones (green triangles), Mrs Cutt (red circles) and Miss Jones (blue squares) welcome back the F1 children and those who are new to us this term.
Our topics this term are: Me, my community and my world and Fantastic Festivals.
We learn through play and practical activities both inside and outside every day with a mixture of adult-led teaching and plenty of opportunities for children to select their own learning.
On Wednesdays the children need to come to school in suitable outdoor clothing and wellingtons or strong footwear as most of the session is outdoor learning. Please ensure that your child has a warm, waterproof coat and a hat in cold weather.
We love to dig and plant in our garden and may get quite messy so old clothes are ideal.
On GLOW day we went to visit Little Roots Children's Community Allotments on Slant Lane. We had lots of fun digging the garden to find worms and other small creatures. Then we planted some daffodil bulbs.
A big "Thank you" to all the parents/carers who came to help- we couldn't have done it without you.
Design Technology and Maths afternoon
This week the whole school took part in design technology with maths activities, using textiles to make a model.
In F1 we made some people models using recycled packaging. We had to check the measurements of the materials that we stuck on to make sure they fitted to the shapes. Everyone had lots of fun during their learning.
Look at us having an amazing time learning all about reading. Alice visited us from the library and we had lots of fun listening to stories as well as using torches in our reading den. It was great to have so many parents/carers joining in.
