The Foundation Stage is a fun and exciting place to be, we learn through both child initiated and adult directed play based activities in our large, recently extended, stimulating indoor environment, as well as our well equipped outdoor yard area. Watch this space as the grassed area where the castle is, is currently under development into an exciting new outdoor learning space.
Please take a look at our termly class newsletters to find out about what’s happening.
Our topic this half term is ‘Spring and New Life.’
We have been learning all about what happens in spring and the things that happen and change to our environment. The Reception children have been exploring their school grounds to find ‘signs of spring.’ They found daffodils and crocuses, they discussed how the weather has became warmer and they found lots of insects and birds.
Please take a look at our photos of what they found.
Take a look at our brand new outdoor area. The children thoroughly enjoy playing outside.
