*~* Welcome to Foundation Stage *~*

Welcome to Foundation Stage! We are a bustling, busy unit made up of Nursery and Reception. We work closely together and we are always up to something exciting!

Miss Dolby, Miss Ellis, Miss Kitchen and Mrs Makin make up our team within the unit and Miss Walker is the Early Years Co-ordinator.

Take a look below to find out about some of the exciting things we have been up to this year... 

 

Our beautiful new outdoor provision and some lovely dinosaur eggs

We have been really enjoying playing out in the sunshine in our new outdoor provision. Here are a few photos of us having fun in the sunshine! We have also been spending time making our own paper mache dinosaur eggs!

 

The Royal Wedding

In true British style, we had a tea party to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We learnt all about the Royal Family and made our own sandwiches and decorated biscuits. 

 

More dinosaurs!

In Maths we have been investigating how long some dinosaurs really are! We used meter wheels and chalks and we were amazed at how long they were!! We worked well in groups to read the information and then measure out our dinosaurs.

 

Dinosaurs!

During this half term (Summer 1) the children have been learning all about Dinosaurs. We started the term off with some mysterious eggs appearing in the classroom and then we have had some bones and dinosaur poo delivered from the museum for us to look at. We have done lots of investigating. Here are some pictures of the children in action.

 

 

1.5.18 'Stay and Play' in our new playground

We have been very lucky in Foundation Stage this year as Miss Walker managed to get us a grant to get some new playground equipment! So we thought it was only fair to let all the grown ups come and test out our new things too! We had a stay and play and had lots of positive feedback from the parents. Here are some pictures of our lovely new playground equipment AND some of the parents who came to play with us.

 

Easter Bonnet Parade

The children made a fantastic effort with their Easter Bonnets and their singing. We are extremely proud of them!

 

16.11.17 Stay and Play

Thank you to everyone who attending the Stay and Play on Thursday morning, it was a great turn out and the children loved showing you all the new areas of provision!

 

 

8.11.17 Teddy Bears Picnic

We are part of a cluster of schools called the Discovery Partnership. This consists of Birchfield Primary School, Gildersome Primary School, Drighlington Primary School, Seven Hills Primary School and St. Francis Primary School. On Wednesday 8th November we were lucky enough to visit St. Francis for a Teddy Bears Picnic!
