Welcome to the Foundation Stage



With the end of the academic year on the horizon we look forward to our last Half Term with our wonderful F2 children who are transitioning into beautiful butterflies, getting ready for their next adventure. But before they move on, we have one very exciting Half Term ahead of us!

Firstly, we look forward to welcoming our three new F1 children and their families. Our Foundation Stage children are very excited about helping you settle in and build new friendships. Miss Gray and I very much look forward to seeing you grow as you begin your Learning Journey with us at Kneesall. What will you achieve?

This Term promises to be another exciting learning experience with many fantastic opportunities. Foundation Stage prides itself on being very creative and through the children’s love of the seaside and model making it has led us to our new topic:

The Lighthouse Keeper

Our topic The Lighthouse Keeper will be supported by the beautiful literature written and illustrated by Ronda andDavid Armitage. The many stories built around The Lighthouse Keeper will allow us to explore the wonders of the sea, build our very own lighthouses and adapt according to the interests of the children, providing spontaneous learning opportunities adhering to the core principles of the Foundation Stage. The possibilities and opportunities are endless!

Finally, we very much look forward to joining in the many wonderful whole school and after school events that have been planned for this Half Term and what a busy Half Term it will be!

Things to remember:

To ensure that your child is prepared for each school day please send them with their book bag, a waterproof coat and a change of socks and pants. Please make sure all of your child’s clothing is clearly labelled to avoid losing school uniform and remember to bring named P.E. kit every Monday to take home Friday.

Fruit and water is available throughout the day on the ‘munch & mingle’ table for children to access in their free play. A quick reminder to parents if you haven’t already, if your child would like milk please register at www.coolmilk.com. Under fives receive free milk! Every Tuesday afternoon children can visit the tuck shop for a selection of healthy snacks for 40p and drinks for 50p. Please put coins in a small named purse or zipped pocket in their book bag so they can access this independently.

Our door is always open so, please come and see Miss Gray or myself if you have any questions or would like to discuss anything.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss S. Walsh Foundation Class Teacher

Miss V. Gray Teaching Assistant
