Foundation 1

Welcome to Foundation 1 (Ash Class)


Mrs Jones (green triangles), Mrs Beaumont (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: The World Came To My Place Today 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.


Welly Wednesday

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.


Ash Class

All classes at Northfield School have a tree name to acknowledge the diversity of British trees and our location in Sherwood Forest. You can find out information about our trees through the Woodland Trust

F1 is the ash tree class.There is a short YouTube clip that shows the year in the life of an ash tree:



Our Trip to Morrison's

Last week we went to visit Morrison's Supermarket. We had a fantastic time making paper plate faces using fruit and vegetables, then we ate the food. Next we had a tour around the shop to see all the interesting foods that we can buy there. We found potatoes, onions,

carrots, broccoli, avocados and lots of different fruits. After that we looked at the fish counter and saw all kinds of sea foods. Finally, we watched as Sarah made pizzas for us to take back to Nursery. We cooked and ate them the next day with some delicious jacket potatoes.

Christmas Craft

Well done to everyone who took part in the Christmas craft. Thank you so much to all those parents/carers who came to support us. It was a busy morning and we had lots of fun making a gingerbread man tree decoration, a collage wreath, a reindeer card and a party hat as well as sparkly play dough shapes and festive colouring.

We hope that you enjoy the photographs.
