Welcome to Foundation Stage; the team is made up of
Miss Brunt, Mrs Clements, Mrs Pickering, Mrs Bee, Mrs Roys, Mrs Foy, Mis Green and Miss Yapp.
In FS2 (Lions and Tigers) we have 60 children split into two classes for carpet sessions and PE. For the rest of the time we mix together in our large classroom space.
In FS1 (Cubs) we have a large classroom space to explore.
Both groups have time to access our wonderful outdoor space.
The children learn through a ‘free flow’, play based curriculum with a range of child initiated and adult-led activities taking place both inside and out.
Please find below information regarding the two apps we regularly use in FS to communicate and share our learning experiences with parents!
The children have an on-line Tapestry Learning Journal which is used to record photos, observations and comments in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. It is a wonderful way for parents to keep informed about their child’s learning instantly through email notifications.
Parents can add their own observations so we can gain an insight into their child’s interests and achievements outside of school, which can provoke some lovely discussions - if you require a form please ask a member of staff.
MarvellousMe is a quick and fun way for teachers to keep you regularly informed about the wonderful things that your child is learning at school, and how well they are developing good behaviours and character skills.
The snippets of information that MarvellousMe gives you (and to any other of your family members or carers who join up) makes it easy for you to:
