Welcome to Foundation 1
Mrs Jones (green triangles), Mrs Cutt (red circles) and Miss Jones (blue squares) and Mrs Beaumont (yellow rectangles) welcome back the F1 children and those who are new to us this term.
Our topics this term are: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blast Off and We Are What We Eat.
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.
Look at our Space Station Reading Corner
We have lots of fun in our space station enjoying books and stories about space.
We made amazing aliens using clay.
We painted the aliens that we made inside and we used natural objects like twigs and stones to make our aliens outside.
It's nearly spring!
We are excited to see that the daffodil and tulip bulbs that we planted in the autumn are beginning to grow.
World Book Day
Our class author was Eric Carle.
Everyone's costumes looked amazing! The children had a fantastic time sharing and enjoying books.
Thank you to all parents and carers who bought and made costumes, it made the day very special.
Here are a few photos of children and grown-ups having a lovely time:
Thank you for the delicious very hungry caterpillar cakes.
F1 would like to say a big "thank you" to Charlie and his Nanna for making all the lovely cakes for us to enjoy.
Our Spring Walk
We went for a walk around the school grounds to find signs of spring. There were lots of trees with blossom on and some trees had birds' nests in them. We found lots of lovely, colourful flowers. We knew which flowers were daffodils as we have them in our F1 garden too.
We had an amazing time recycling plastic bottles. We made some shakers using pasta, lentils, rice, beads, buttons and other materials that made a noise when the bottle was shaken. Then we went a walk around the playground making lots of noise with our shakers. We also made some glitter shakers using coloured water and sparkly glitter.
Our trip to White Post Farm
Everyone had a fantastic time and we learned lots about the different animals. We fed the sheep, llamas and the goats, who were very greedy! There were some animals that we could hold or stroke like mice, chicks and guinea pigs and some interesting creatures that we could look at such as snakes, lizards, fish and the meerkats. We saw a goat being milked and felt how warm the bowl of milk was.
Later in the day, we had lots of fun on the adventure playground. Some of us needed a little nap on the way back to school.
Foundation 1 staff and children would like to say a big "thank you" to all the parent/carers who came with us and to Molly and Amy who were our guides for the day.
