Welcome to Foundation
Week Beginning 19.11.2018
What a busy week - we have been learning all the songs and actions as well as doing some acting ready for our Christmas show. Thank you to Harvey and Piper's mums for sorting the costumes for us. We also went to the Beehive to look around the kitchen and the restaurant and we even had our milk and snack there.
THIS WEEK IN FOUNDATION
Wednesday - PE LESSON
Friday YEAR 6 TAKEOVER DAY - class poetry - first round

we now have a drinking water dojo. The children can have a dojo if they drink their whole bottle! Please make sure that your child has their bottle each day!
Toys in foundation
As the children settle into school life we are happy for them to bring in toys and costumes from home. But after half term the children will no longer be able to bring in toys from home. They are still permitted to bring in books and stories and any items that link to what we are learning about but they will not be able to bring in other toys. If your child brings in a toy we will ask them to keep it in their locker until the end of the day,
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
