Foundation 1 (3/4 year olds) 2019 - 2020



Hello and welcome to Foundation One!


We have three members of staff in our class:

Mrs Campbell - Teaching Assistant (Monday - Friday)



Our morning session runs from 8:45-11:45

Our afternoon session runs from 12:30-3:30








A huge, warm welcome back to all of our children and parents, for the start of 2019!


Whether you are returning to school or you have recently started with us, we are looking forward to sharing with you, all of the exciting things we have planned for this term.


Be assured that we will involve and update parents and guardians in all aspects of our learning, when possible.



Just a few friendly reminders for this term:


  • Please remember to send a drinking bottle in with your child every day (water only please)!


  • A bag containing spare underwear and a set of clothes is really helpful to have on their peg, in case of any accidents (we also like to get very messy in Foundation 1)! These bags can stay in school, they don't need to go home every day.


  • We are currently in the process of updating our family tree. We would be very grateful if you could send in a picture of your family, so that we can add it to our display in the classroom. This is particularly relevant for our new children who have recently joined us in January. If your child has been with us previously and you sent in a photograph during the last school year, we will still have it on display.


  • Our second Literacy focus for this term is 'Each Peach Pear Plum'. If you can, please familiarise your child with this particular story. If you require a copy of the story, please speak to a member of staff on the door and we will be happy to provide you with this.



So far this half term, we have recited the Nursery Rhyme 'Jack and Jill' and turned it into a story. The children have been reciting the story using actions, drawing some fantastic pictures of the two characters and even had a go at putting their own twist on the story. They had some really creative ideas! We now know what a pail is and what it is used for and the children had a go at making their own, using plastic cups and pipe cleaners.  We have been exploring different textures in our creative area and experimenting with a range of tools when painting, to create different effects.

Take a look at the top of our page for some fantastic drawings of 'sad' and 'shocked' Jack and Jill. The children drew these to reflect how the characters would feel after tumbling down a hill!
