This term our topic is:
Why Do You Love Me So Much?

This half term our topic is titled ‘Why do you love me so much?’ We will be learning about the things that are special about each of us and how we show others that we care for them. We will look at celebrations such as Harvest Festival, birthdays and weddings and talk about how these are times to show others we love them. For our memorable experience, we will be visited by a parent with their baby, so that the children can talk about what babies need and why they are so special in people’s families.

Welcome to Foundation 1

Physical Education

This half term the children have PE in the hall with a sports coach every Monday. They will stay in their uniform for these sessions. Earrings must not be worn on PE days. If your child has newly pierced ears, please inform the school office and fill out a permission slip.

Library books

Every Monday your child will choose a new Library book. This is for both you and your child to enjoy and read together. Please remember to return the book every week so they can choose a new book to ensure they are developing a positive attitude to a wide range of texts.


Wow Moments

We would love to hear about any recent achievements, news, or exciting activities that you and your child have been up to at home. In the cloakroom area is our WOW board. Please write any exciting things you would like to share with us on a slip located in the packet on the board. You can also pop to the office and fill in a slip. This will be shared in achievement assembly on a Friday.


Rhyme of the week

Each Monday a new rhyme will be introduced to the children. Your child will bring home a copy of the rhyme for you to practise at home. We will repeat the rhyme each day.

100 things to do before you're 6!

We have sent home a list of '100 things to do before you're 6!' These are fun things that give you some great ways to get everyone in the family involved in having some fun. We would love to see your selfies of you and your child enjoying the some of these activities. Please see the file below for the list. How many can you do? (This has been taken from Shonette Bason-Wood at Spread the Happiness.)

Fun Fridays

Each Friday your child will be taking part in fun activities. For example we might be baking, going on walks around the field, doing large scale art or messy play.

Last half term our topic was all about exploring. We used maps to find our way and made our own maps. We went on a lion hunt around our classroom after reading 'We're going on a lion hunt' by David Axtell. We learn all about different dinosaurs and managed to help some who were trapped in the ice!
