Welcome to Lower Foundation Stage
In Lower Foundation stage we have up to 26 children in two sessions; one in the morning from 8:45-11:45 and the afternoon session from 12:30-3:30.
The staff members are Miss Hill the teacher and Mrs Davys the nursery nurse.
We are learning through exploring, investigating and playing. The day is broken up into sessions and includes phonics, maths and story done in groups and free play sessions. During the free play sessions, Miss Hill and Mrs Davys work with the children to achieve objectives that are focused and unique to each child.
Whilst your child is on their exciting journey through lower foundation stage they will be developing their self help skills and independence. You can help them with this by encouraging them to :-
· Put on their own coats and zip them up
· Find their own coat, bag and accessories such as hats, gloves and water bottles
· Be independent at going to the toilet
· Recognise their name
We ask that you send your child with a water bottle that is named and their book bag every day. If your child is going to require spare clothes please put them in a named bag and hang it on your child’s peg. If your child requires help with toileting please see Miss Hill or Mrs Davys.
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.
