Wolves

The members of staff  in Foundation Stage are Miss Taylor, Mrs Elton and Mrs Raines.

In the Foundation Stage  we focus on making the children feel ‘at home’ by providing familiar games and activities with their friends. We have an open door policy where parents are welcome into the classroom, and forge close links with home.

We experience the festivals of Diwali, Chinese New Year, Bonfire Night and Christmas, through making and tasting traditional foods, dressing up and role play. The children also develop their creative skills using a range of media producing: cards; lanterns; dragon masks; and paintings to music.

We enjoy exploring the local area and we have visited the church, post- box and woods to support our learning.

Important things your child should have in school:
• A drinks bottle
• A PE bag consisting of any plain T-shirt, a pair of shorts, plimsolls
