Foundation Stage/ Year 1

Welcome to Foundation and Year One


Hello and welcome to our class page!


Our Christian value this half term is Equality and our daily Collective Worship will teach the children the importance of treating everyone as equals. The topic for our EYFS children will focus on 'The World Around Us', which links with our weather, seasons and cultural celebrations such as the Chinese New Year. Please see the yearly overview (below) for a breakdown of what our Year 1 children will be learning each half term. Also, look out for our weekly 'what will we be learning this week?' announcements made via Seesaw.

- Snack is available (am only) for all Foundation Stage children in the Foundation classroom. Please bring in 20p a day or £1 weekly to help us provide a variety of healthy foods for your child to try
