Foundation Key Information

Foundation 1 morning session will start at 9.00am and finish at 11.30am. Foundation 1 afternoon session will start at 1.00pm and finish at 3.30pm. If your child is staying all day their session will start at 9.00am and finish at 3.30pm.

An adult from the Foundation team will meet the children at the FSU gate onto the playground. We will then check their temperature using a thermometer to the wrist. When the children arrive in the school building, they will be washing their hands and provided with hand sanitizer. This will be repeated throughout the day.

 

Staff

Miss Harding (Class Teacher/EYFS Lead) and Mrs Nicholson (Teaching Assistant)

 

PE

PE will be on Tuesday morning, the children are to come in school on this day in their PE kit: school jumper, plain navy/black/grey jogging trousers or shorts and a plain white/navy/black/grey T-shirt with trainers is expected. PE will be done outside, weather permitted. We will review the additional indoor PE session over the term, alongside government guidelines.

 

Reading

Your child will be given a reading book of their choice for you to share at home. They will change their book every Monday and we expect you to read with your child at least 4 times a week to support their communication and language development. The books have to be quarantined which is why we are setting days to change reading books. More support on phonics at home will come later in the term.

 

Learning and well-being

The main focus for the children is to ensure they are happy and settled in school especially with all the uncertainty at the moment. We will be provided them with many opportunities to share and discuss their lock-down experiences, worries and support with gaps in learning.

Extreme Reading Pictures - Well done to the children who have enter the extreme reading competition!
