Welcome Back to Foundation One!

The Foundation One team would like to welcome you all back to Foundation One after the Summer Holidays! We hope that you have all had a lovely time off with your families and have had lots of adventures. We can’t wait to hear all about them.

Our Topic
We have a very busy half term ahead of us – our topic is ‘People Who Help Us’ and we are hoping to get some very special visitors to come into school to talk about their jobs and show us the equipment they use.

Superstar Readers
We are continuing to set the challenge of sharing at least 5 stories a week with your family and will be awarding ‘Superstar Readers’ stickers each week to the families who achieve this. Your names will also appear on our Superstar Reader ‘Wall of Fame’ and there will be a half termly prize for the children that share the most stories.

Attendance and Punctuality
Can we remind you that it is very important that your child attends nursery every day and arrives on time. Arriving on time allows you to have quick discussions with key workers if needed and also allows your child to settle in and find out about the sessions activities.

Dropping off and picking up
Can we please remind you to wait outside the gate to the Foundation Stage playground when dropping off in the morning and picking up at the end of school? It is also unacceptable to allow older or younger siblings to play with the activities and equipment while waiting. We have had lots of activities and resources damaged due to this happening and would appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Forest School
Our Forest School day this year has moved to a Tuesday. Please remember to bring named wellies in a named carrier bag (please do not allow your child to wear them to school) along with a warm clothes, hat, gloves and scarf when necessary. We will inform you when our sessions will begin due to our new children being given time to settle in to nursery routines.

New Starters
And finally…we will also be welcoming lots of new friends into F1 during the next few weeks. We hope that they will settle in easily, make lots of new friends and most importantly have lots of fun!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday!

Katy, Lianne and Sarah
