Welcome to Lower Foundation Stage
Useful Parent Information
The school day
Morning nursery session starts at 8:45AM and finishes at 11:45. Afternoon nursery session starts at 12.30PM and finishes at 3.30PM. Please make sure your child arrives promptly at school for 8:45AM/12:30PM to ensure they are present for register and ready to start learning. If for any reason, your child arrives after this time, please go to the school office. If you will be late to pick up your child at home time, please ring the office to inform them as soon as possible. For safety reasons, children need to be collected by a known adult, so if someone new is collecting your child please inform a member of staff.
Reading is an important and fun part of children’s learning. Children will visit the school library every Friday. They are invited to choose a book to take home for the week. Books should be returned the following Friday if your child wishes to change their book.
Your child should wear uniform which follows our school policy. In Foundation Stage your child will need appropriate clothing all year round for outdoor play. In winter, please make sure you send your child to school with a waterproof coat, hat, scarves and gloves. In summer, please send your child with a sun hat and labelled sun cream. It is a good idea to send a pair of wellies to school with your child for all year round as we will use them daily when playing on the grass, in the mud kitchen and for water play.
Please remember to label ALL items of clothing and shoes as this will help return lost property as soon as possible.
We hope your child enjoys their time in Lower Foundation Stage. If you have any concerns or queries, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of staff in the Foundation Stage Unit and arrange an appropriate time to chat.
This half term we are learning ‘All about me’. We have been making new friends and talking about our family. We have enjoyed painting portraits of ourselves and looking at photographs of different families.

We have been describing and naming 2-D shapes. We enjoy talking about the shapes we see in our environment.
