Wolves

The teachers  in Foundation Stage are Mrs Augustin and ​ Miss Taylor. The children are also support by some of our Learning Support Assistants.

In the Foundation Stage  we focus on making the children feel ‘at home’ by providing familiar games and activities with their friends. 

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
• A bag to carry a reading record
• Appropriate clothing for the weather  (as we play outside every day whatever the weather!)

Please ensure all your child’s things are named as a lot of school clothing is the same.

Autumn Terms in Wolves

In Wolves, our first topic was Let’s Explore, where we had fun discovering all of the different areas we have access to at school. Our favourite places to visit are the library and Forest School area. Wolves used their senses to explore the school grounds and had fun throwing the autumn leaves in the air, being quiet whilst looking for birds in the bird hide and discovering what was living under the logs. We have been doing lots of activities to help us to settle into school life and have been learning how to develop our listening skills.

We have enjoyed listening to lots of stories, one of our favourite stories was Mr Gumpy’s Outing. We especially enjoyed pretending to be the characters from the story in Mr Gumpy’s boat. The children had fun making obstacle courses outside and drawing maps after listening to the story, We Are Going on a Bear Hunt. We put on our chef hats and followed recipes to make tasty jam sandwiches for our celebratory, end of half term picnic!

We have been busy in Maths, exploring and continuing repeating patterns and learning about shape. Through singing songs and using counting objects we have solved one more and one less number problems.

Our second topic was Marvellous Machines, we have enjoyed learning how things work and had fun investigating how to turn a light bulb on and off and finding out which objects are magnetic.

We are getting really good at remembering all of the sounds we have learnt in phonics and are beginning to use what we have learnt to help us to read and write simple words.
