Making a difference, every day

New Starters 2018

We are very excited to welcome you to our school this September! Your child will start school in the Foundation Stage. There are two classes - Ash Class and Saplings Class.

(Photos coming soon!)

We are very excited about our brand new Foundation play area! It will be finished soon...

In Foundation we have a play based approach. Our emphasis is on investigation, exploration and the intrinsic link between playing and learning. In Foundation we use our school grounds on a weekly basis and children also have access to our outdoor area.

We do lots of fun things in Foundation!

  • We learn to read and write
  • We learn to add and subtract
  • We learn to construct
  • We learn to be imaginative
  • We have new experiences and try new things

 

A normal day in Foundation

  • The school day runs from 8.50am to 3.30pm
  • Children have a playtime separate to the res of school
  • Lunchtime in 12.00-1.15pm

 

What your child will need every day

  • Book Bag - for letters and reading books (these are available from the office)
  • A drink (a bottle is best so they can drink throughout the day and fill it up if they need to; no fizzy drinks please)
  • A snack for breaktime
  • Wellies (for going in the woods)
  • P.E. kit - black shorts and white t-shirt to begin with until the weather gets better and we go outside

We will go outside as much as possible so please send your child with a suitable coat. When it is very cold remember a scarf, gloves and hat - we do go out in the snow!

 

You will need to show your child’s birth certificate to the Office Administrator/School Business Manager when your child starts school.

 

School uniform consists of grey trousers/skirt, white polo shirt and red jumper or cardigan. Please see our Uniform Information on how to order. 

 

It is essential to name everything!

All the children in the class have similar things and they will lose them at some point!

 

Our Foundation Stage team looks forward to welcoming you and your child into our school.
