Welcome to Foundation Stage!

Welcome to foundation stage, a nurturing environment where children can learn and reach their full potential.  Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s learning so that together we can provide a solid foundation and achieve the best possible outcomes.

The children are engaged in enquiry based, project style learning which will evolve as they initiate ideas and ask questions of others. The children will be using lots of natural resources to support their projects.

The areas are the Piazza, where we gather to talk with our friends, the Block Area, the Workshop and Outside Area which we use all year round.

We have high expectations of them and encourage them to be polite, well-mannered and hard-working inside and outside of school. This way they are always ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’ aiming to be the best they can be at all times.


Covid outbreak

In the event that school or our ‘class bubble’ need to close, we will post daily learning presentations below and on Tapestry to make sure we continue to offer daily learning for the children.


Home Learning 6.11.20

Home Learning 5.11.20

Home Learning 4.11.20


Hello everyone, as you are aware current COVID guidelines have meant that school is closed for the next few days.

I would ask that you please access Tapestry, where you will find daily uploads to support the children’s learning. There will be a variety of Letters and Sounds, maths, Funky Fingers and stories for you to share and enjoy.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email should you need to ask anything.

Please stay safe and I will see you all soon.

Kind Regards



I am sure you will agree that reading is a vital life skill!

Please can we actively encourage you to read with your child at least three times a week at home. When you have read with your child, please can you make a note of the date, title of the book and make a comment about your child’s reading too. This will help the adults in school maintain a regular dialogue with you about your child’s reading.



Please continue to use Tapestry to access a weekly homework presentation posted every Monday. You can also post comments, pictures and videos regularly about any of the work the children have produced. It is also a way for parents to communicate regularly with myself should you wish to contact me. If you have forgotten your login details, need further support with uploading photographs or videos on Tapestry, or would like advice or to ask me anything else, please contact me via email.
