Autumn 2 in Foundation One

We’ve had a lovely start to Autumn 2 in Foundation One, with a very busy first week celebrating Halloween and Bonfire Night. The children enjoyed playing in our bonfire role play area inside and learnt how to stay safe around fire. Because the children had been working so hard remembering our fire circle rules at Forest school we treated them to hot dogs cooked on a real fire – all the children behaved amazingly and we have already had requests from the children for more cooking on the fire at forest school – we had better get our chefs hats on as the children have said they would like soup, stew and pizza!

Our topic for the rest of the half term is called ‘Home Sweet Home’ with a big focus on Christmas and our performance coming up.  We are starting off our role play area as a bathroom, then moving onto a kitchen and then onto a very special living room dressed ready for Christmas. We will be making poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day, taking part in National Nursery Rhyme week and hopefully taking part in our PTA’s enterprise project to make and sell items for the Christmas Fair before finally ending the year with our fabulous Christmas Party!

We love this half term and have lots of lovely activities planned for the children – keep looking at the website for more updates!

Welcome Back!

Another half term has flown by and we are on the countdown to Christmas.

This half term our topic is called ‘Let’s Celebrate’ where we will be learning all about different festivals and special days from around the world. This will include learning about Diwali, Hannuka, Remembrance Day, Weddings, Guy Fawkes and of course, Christmas!!

Parent’s evening letters will be going out next week (week beginning 30th October) and times will be given on a first come first served basis. Therefore the quicker you hand in your letters, the more chance you have of getting the day and time you would prefer.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to come into class on Wednesdays or Fridays. You can also message over Dojos or see me BEFORE the bell goes every morning.
