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.

Autumn 1:

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. We continue our learning with our topic of 'Nursery Rhymes and Traditional Tales' where we introduce the teaching of Phonics and Guided Reading sessions.

After a successful settling in period, families attended our 'Meet the Teacher and Curriculum' evening and enjoyed the opportunity to come and have lunch with the children.  This term, families are also invited to attend our 'Fun Phonics and Reading' workshop and Parent's Evening.

Harvest Festival:
The children were very excited to learn about Harvest and read the story of 'The Enormous Turnip'. We learnt about helping and supporting each other and the children showed their fantastic mark making skills by producing Harvest posters for Hope Baptist Church. They looked super and it was lovely to support our local community. 
 
The Foundation children then enjoyed their Harvest assembly with family and friends. They had learnt 'Harvest Time' to the tune of Baby Shark and 'The Wheels on the Tractor' - what fantastic fun they had!
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.
'Fun Phonics and Reading Workshop' Wednesday 10th October 5-6 pm:
 
Supporting reading and phonics at home is shared and celebrated at Montpelier. We like to work with parents and families to encourage and support through workshops, modelling and sharing ideas for fun and exciting resources. Super home learning is then shared on Tapestry and fantastic ideas are applied in class and through outdoor learning too.
