Welcome to Foundation Stage

Welcome to our fantastic Foundation Stage. We have 32 enthusiastic, caring and fun-loving children split between two classes, Chestnut and Holly. We celebrate when other class mates have achieved their goals. We use beautiful manners and are kind to one another.

We learn through play both inside and outdoors, whatever the weather! We love to explore and investigate and try to persevere when things are tricky. During the year we learn through different themes. These are based on the children's ideas as well as current themes and interests.

Our Early Years teachers are Mrs Edney and Mrs Stone in Chestnut class and Mrs Jeffries and Mrs Edney in Holly class.  Mrs Edney teaches Monday, Tuesday and Friday and Mrs Stone teaches Wednesday to Friday. Mrs Jeffries teaches Monday to Thursday. Our class is supported by Mrs Jones, Mrs Cooklin, Mrs Taylor and Mrs Closel. Both classrooms provide the same mirrored continuous provision and the children have shared access to the outdoor area.

Each day the children access a daily phonics lesson taught through the Read Write Inc. scheme. Maths is taught through a mixture of practical activities and lessons from White Rose Maths. Each half term, we have planned texts that we will be using with the children. Our learning this half term is based around the book 'Gigantosaurus'. We immerse ourselves in this text, both through Literacy learning and within the learning environment. We keep you informed of our learning each week through emailing and uploading weekly letters onto this page every Friday, as well as adding photos to Evidence Me and Twitter, so that you can be involved in your child's learning alongside us!


Summer term- Your child will be sent home with a 'beautiful' picture book every Tuesday. This is for you to read and share with your child. Your child will also come home with a reading book each Friday, linked to what they have been reading and learning in their RWI phonics group. We 'strive for five' reads each week and at this stage of your child's reading journey, we ask that you listen to your child read and/or share a book with your child everyday. Each Friday we email our class newsletter to let you know what we have been doing in class that week and inform you of any upcoming learning and how you can help at home.


We do PE every Friday. Please come dressed in PE kits on this day. Just a reminder that our PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and black trainers.
