This week in Foundation…

Saturday 23 March 2019

On Monday, a new mystery unfolded in the classroom… someone (or something) had been through our roof and stolen our spare pants! They must have left in a hurry, as some were left dangling from the ceiling. F2 wrote down their ideas based on the clues that we had been left, before discovering later in the week that we had been visited by those cheeky aliens from the story Aliens Love Underpants!

We were pleased to see the sunshine make an appearance this week, making our outdoor learning extra fun! The children have loved using the mud kitchen as a ‘potting’ area. We were also able to enjoy PE outside on Thursday.

This week’s ball skill was catching. We made sure we were throwing ‘chest passes’ and ensuring we made it easy for our partner to catch. We also worked on having ‘ready hands’ that grab the ball rather than pushing it away from us.


In maths, as well as continuing our work on our focus number 10, F2 have been thinking about time through the Seasons of the year.

We loved watching the amazing talents in Friday’s show. Well done to Jayden who represented Foundation with his super-cool dance moves!

Home-Link Challenge- F1 and F2

Thank you to those who have brought in or emailed photos of their family and/or home. Please continue to bring these in if you have not done so already.

Thursday saw the first full day of Spring! As part of our discussions on the Seasons, we would like you to take a photo of something you see on your walk to or from school, which is a first sign of Spring. Perhaps you have spotted the shoots of new flowers, bird’s nests or blossom on the trees? Please bring in your photos or email them to  us;

Parents as Partners

You are invited to a ‘Parents as Partners’ talk on Wednesday 27th March 3.15-3.45 in the Foundation classroom. This is for both F1 and F2 parents/carers and is a repeat of a workshop we held earlier in the school year, to give tips on how you can share your child’s learning at home with us. You will also have an opportunity to talk to the class teachers and look at your child’s learning journey folder.

Our Door Decoration Competition Prize

We have decided to have a ‘cinema experience’ treat afternoon in Foundation, to celebrate winning the decorative door competition for World Book Day. This will take place on Wednesday afternoon. We will start the week by decorating our popcorn holders and creating tickets inviting our friend’s to our very special cinema.
