Foundation

Welcome to Foundation Stage!


Mrs Devitt (Assistant Headteacher, SENCO, KS1 and Early Years lead) is the teacher of the Dragonfly class. Miss Fox (Phonics lead and Reading lead) teaches the Butterfly class. Both classes are supported by Mrs Dyble (HLTA).
 

Each child is guided through their learning journey and are happy
and cared for in the school. We have great fun in Early Years and
learn through exciting play and interacting with each other.

Easter Holiday websites
Well done parents... you have made it to the Easter holidays! Over the holidays, we will not be setting work in your child's portfolios each day but they are more than welcome to complete the activities in their Easter packs that we delivered to you on Wednesday. On Monday 20th April, we shall start setting activities for you to complete from your new packs then (please do not complete these until they are set).
Below, I've attached some links that you might find useful over the holidays. Lots of websites are currently free, so I've had a look for the ones that I think your children will find the most enjoyable. We hope you have a fantastic Easter and look forward to hearing from you soon!

Home learning for this week
If your child is not returning to school this week, we provided enough work in the last pack to cover the first week back. Home learning will then be updated on a Friday by Mrs Devitt. We are providing an overview and do not need work submitting to us on Dojo. I'm sure you can understand that we will be very busy teaching groups of children throughout the day.
 
Tuesday- My favourite Zoo animal (Literacy)
                - Measuring crocodiles (maths)
Wednesday- Zoo animal label writing (Literacy)
                       - Farm ordinal number (maths)
Thursday- What am I? (Literacy)
                  - One more or one less (maths)
Friday- Rhyming activity (Literacy)
            - Number bonds to 10 (maths)
 
A new collection of books has been assigned to everybody on Epic! This will now be a class assignment instead of individual groups.
 
Phonics sessions will continue to be available, details follow below.
For children who are staying at home, RWI phonics sessions will still be available.
 
Daily lessons will be available at 9.30am and all lessons are available for 24 hours. All films will be in separate categories on the YouTube channel.
 
 
 
For a new schedule or guidance on Red Words and Read and Hold a Sentence, head to the website: https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/
 
From the 15th June, hold a sentence sessions will also be available. We teach these in addition to teaching the sounds in class so it's great that you'll also be able to now access these at home. Hold a sentence 1 will be ideal for anybody who was previously bringing a phonics book home.
