Welcome to Foundation Stage!
Welcome to Term 1 of Foundation Stage, we are so excited to welcome our new classes into school and begin getting to know each other.
Our topic this term is:
'All About Me!'
Our topic this term is ‘All About Me!’ and is a wonderful topic to find out more about each other, making friends and learning about our feelings and body. We will be looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts to learn more about our feelings, our bodies and taking care of our teeth. Some texts include: You Choose, The Rainbow Fish, Colour Monster, Alan's Scary Teeth and Funny Bones.
In Literacy we will play listening games and begin Phonics lessons learning the sound for the letters: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u and r. We will do this through stories songs and practical activities. We will also introduce the children to the tricky words: to and the. The children will also bring home their very own reading books to share and practise their learning with you at home.
In Maths, we will be matching, sorting and comparing groups of objects, we will begin to talk about measure and notice patterns. We will introduce the children to the numbers 1, 2 and 3, looking at how these numbers are written, patterns the numbers make, and what other quantities we can see within these numbers.
What a busy but EXCITING first term in Foundation Stage.
