Respect - Collaborate - Grow



Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!


Miss Chana and Mrs Disney welcome you to the Foundation Stage Class Page.


Learning in the classroom environment takes many forms. As well as direct teaching through small group and whole class activities, your child will develop deeper learning through opportunities to play. The classroom (inside and outside) is set up with continuous provision. This includes activities that cover all areas of the curriculum and the children access these independently.


We believe that respect, collaboration and nurturing personal growth is extremely important. Therefore, developing these skills is a vital part of our curriculum and at the centre of our ethos in the Foundation Stage.


The curriculum for the Foundation Stage underpins all future learning. There are seven areas of learning, divided into the three prime areas of:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

and the four specific areas, through which the prime areas are strengthened and applied:

· Literacy


· Understanding the world

· Expressive arts and design


This year we have some exciting milestones, their first school Christmas production, first school trip, first class assembly, first sports day…and so many more!


Mrs Disney and I feel very lucky to be spending the year with these amazing children!


We will keep you posted on information and general news, on this class page.


We look forward to a successful year.

Foundation - 'Superheroes'


Foundation celebrated their topic of ‘SUPERHEROES’ with a superhero dress up day on Friday 14th June. Children came dressed as a superhero for the day to join the Superhero Headquarters! In addition, we invited a male member from each child's family to come to Foundation and spend the afternoon with their child to celebrate Father’s day. We had lots fun celebrating!

Chicks invade Foundation!

Foundation class have been looking at the life cycle of a chick, so... one Monday morning a delivery of eleven eggs arrived.  The eggs were carefully placed in the incubator and the children eagerly awaited.











Pecking and tweeting away!


Exhausting !



First outing... 



Flapping around!





The chicks have proved a great hit with Pupils, Parents and Staff!






Tasty Hot Cross Buns!

Continuing our topic on Easter, the children had the opportunity to taste fruity hot cross buns in class on Tuesday. Children remembered the Easter story and how people celebrate Easter and one way is by eating hot cross buns! They noticed the cross on the bun and what it represents. The children enjoyed eating hot cross buns! 





Paper Mache in Foundation!


This week in Foundation, children learnt about dinosaurs! As an activity, children had to create a dinosaur egg using paper mache! It was messy and fun. The children really enjoyed it! A huge thank you to Mrs Bannister for volunteering her time to help us with this. 



Exploring the climbing frame!

March 2019


This week in P.E, children explored the climbing frame! Climbing helps children to improve their co-ordination and motor skills. The methods children use in climbing can aid their cognitive development through problem solving and memory.


All the children were brave and took calculated risks when climbing! 








Continuing our topic on food and cooking this week, children in Foundation Stage made a pancake! They helped our chefs, Mrs Disney and Mrs Bannister mix, cook and eat pancakes! They were delicious!






Foundation go Fruity!


As part of our topic on food and cooking this term, children in Foundation Stage made their own fruit kebabs. They chose which fruit they would like and cut it into smaller pieces. They then made their fruit kebab and ate it! Yummy!
