Don't forget to check Tapestry regularly to see what we get up to in Foundation!






Our Christian value this term is generosity






Our PE lesson this half term will be on Friday mornings where the children will be participating in physical activities and games to develop their gross motor skills, spatial awareness and co-ordination. 





Outdoor Learning

-Everyday the children participate in outdoor learning where they have the opportunity to discover, experiment, learn about and connect to the natural world, as well as engage in a variety of outdoor and adventure activities.

-We recommend that the children keep a pair of wellies (or old trainers) and a waterproof jacket in school, as well as a pair of joggers/tracksuit bottoms/leggings/waterproof bottoms which they can slip on before going outside to keep themselves dry and warm.

-Also the children are more than welcome to keep a spare set of clothes in school in case they become muddy or wet whilst having fun exploring the water tray and playing in the mud kitchen!






Our stars of the week are: Mickey and Sophie!




Our dojo winner is: Hattie!
