Welcome to Foundation

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Harrison, Mrs Ieronymakis and Mrs Williams
We are very much looking forward to meeting all of the children as they embark on their own Learning Journey! This will be an exciting and challenging term for the children as they begin to form friendships, settle into new routines and access plenty of practical, fun and memorable learning experiences both indoors and out. When we come to visit your home, we will provide a booklet for you to complete together. This will be a fun and engaging activity to record all of your favourite things and interests. It is a great way for us to get to know you better, finding out about all of the things that you love! From this, we can create stimulating and engaging activities throughout the year in Foundation Stage Two. Our topics can be based on the children’s interests so please make sure that we know every single one!
Thank you for all the completed forms so far!
You will have the opportunity to watch your child as they contribute to the school harvest festival. We will be thinking about where some of our foods come from and rehearse songs for the assembly.
