Welcome to Foundation Stage!
Show respect, Work together, Aspire, Nurture
Mrs Ellis, Mrs Hopewell & Mrs Watts
A warm welcome to the Foundation class page! We hope you've all had a lovely summer holidays and can't wait to work with you and your children this year.
Due to the school following guidelines to ensure the safety of the whole school community, communication will be different to what we are used to with parents/carers. If you have any questions or need to pass on information please do not hesitate to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you at the nearest opportunity.
We hope these pages help you to support your child(ren) with their learning. From September 2021 in Foundation we will be combined into one class which includes Foundation 1 part-time children (3-4 year olds) and Foundation 2 full-time children (4-5 year olds).
For Foundation 1 children we offer the 30 hour free childcare extended entitlement. If you would like to find out more information please visit our 30 hour extended entitlement childcare page.
The staff and children work closely alongside each other to make sure your child(ren) have the best possible experience whilst at Lovers' Lane in Foundation Stage.
Timings of the Day
An adult from the Foundation team will meet the children at the FSU gate onto the playground. 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.
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.
PE will be on Wednesday 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.
Learning and well-being
The main focus for the children is to ensure they are happy and settled in school especially with the uncertainty children have had over the past few years in school. We will be providing them with many opportunities to share and discuss their experiences, worries and support with gaps in learning.
