Welcome to Foundation


Welcome to Foundation:

The Foundation teaching staff will be keeping this page up to date with exciting class news, pictures of things we've done, and more. They will also be letting you know about all the exciting activities they have got planned. Please scroll down for our super learning and experiences that the children have enjoyed since starting school in September.


All Parents, Carers and family members are welcome to our Foundation Coffee mornings - every Thursday this term from 8.40-9.30 am in the cafe run by Miss Tickle and Mrs Gilbert. Please come and pop in for a cuppa, chat and to meet other Foundation families.

Autumn 1:

Wow, what a fantastic start for the new children of Montpelier! This term our new children have immersed themselves into school life and have enjoyed exploring their new school. In our topic 'All About Me', the children have shared their interests and likes with adults and friends with a focus on Communication and Language and PSED. The foundation team hosted a 'Meet the Teacher and Curriculum' evening to all of the foundation parents and carers on the 24th of September and also invited  families to enjoy the opportunity to come and have lunch with the children. It was a brilliant success and the children enjoyed having family members in for a school lunch. We were very proud of the children after their performance of 'Harvest Time' in their first Harvest Assembly. A great time was had by all. 

Curriculum Evening:
Here is the presentation the was shown to Parents and Carers in September. If you were not able to make it please have a read below and ask if you have any questions.
Autumn Weekly Home Learning:
The children will come home every Friday with a weekly Foundation Home Learning newsletter.  This will provide families information about what we have been learning in class and how to support learning at home through exciting adventures and activities. It is fantastic to see home learning shared on Tapestry.

Early Reading and Phonics in Foundation:
Reading is at the heart of our curriculum in Foundation and it is our priority to ensure and promote a love of reading and sharing stories. We do this through class authors, celebration days and an array of texts that the children show interest in. Children are given a reading diary and are supported to read both at home and school. Please see below the letter with information around reading in Foundation. We look forward to seeing you at our Fun Phonics and Reading workshop on October 16th at 5pm.
