Welcome to Foundation!

Foundation Staff

Our learning last week (10th- 14th June):


This week we have continued  new topic looking at Habitats. We have read our new text "Saving Mr Hoot "by Helen Stephens. We have been writing sentences about Mr Hoot and making our own Mr Hoot Book.

We have been exploring our own habitats and looking at the houses we live in. We have made and painted our cardboard boxes to look like our own houses.

We have also started looking at Jungle and Rainforest Habitats and read the book Walking Through the Jungle, we listenened to the sounds we might hear in the jungle and have been making rainmakers out of cardboad tubes.


In Maths we have consolidated our knowledge of  2d shapes and havee been making pictures out of different shapes. We looked at tangrams and how a rectangle can be cut in half to make 2 triangles. 


Our PE day is Friday but please bring in kits on a Monday where they can stay in the children's lockers until Friday, as they will need trainers for their Bikeability sessions too. Please make sure your child can dress and undress themselves independently.


Junk Modelling Area

This is still a very popular area of the classroom, so if you have any unwanted yoghurt pots, cardboard tubes, small boxes, vegetable spread pots, string or ribbon. All donations would be very gratefully received.


Reading Books

Please can I remind you that reading books will only be changed on a Monday unless your child is absent or it is a bank holiday. Please can you write a comment to say that you have read your child's book with them, unless the book has been read on 3 different occasions the reading book will not be changed. Many Thanks
