Welcome to Foundation!
Welcome to our class page! There are eighteen children in Foundation and three adults in our class. Our class teacher is Miss Mohomed-Hossen and our teaching assistants are Mrs Roy (Monday to Wednesday) and Miss Westcott (Wednesday to Friday).
Please visit our page regularly to see what we are up to!
Our Christian value this term is perseverance.
Our PE lesson this half term will be on Wednesday mornings where the children will be participating in dance.
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 or 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 with the capacity activities in the water tray, playing with the mud kitchen or building a bug hotel!
Our stars of the week are: Olivia and Piper
Our dojo winner is: Archie

Home learning activities
Home learning activities are set every fortnight and we ask that the children complete at least one activity.
Set on: Monday 27th January 2020
Due in: Monday 10th February 2020
Show and Tell
‘Show and Tell’ will take place once a week on Friday mornings and every child will have a set date when they will share their ‘Show and Tell’ with the class. Therefore every child will have the opportunity to complete ‘Show and Tell’ once every three weeks.
We see ‘Show and Tell’ as a fantastic opportunity for the children to practise using their speaking and listening skills, as well as sharing their knowledge with other children in the class. Therefore we believe that the children’s ‘Show and Tell’ should be educational and relevant to the learning which they are currently taking part in.
Each child can only bring in one object with them for their ‘Show and Tell’ and only bring it into school on the day of their ‘Show and Tell’. The children’s objects will be collected in by Miss Hossen on Friday as the children arrive and stored in a safe place until ‘Show and Tell’ later in the morning.
For the children’s second ‘Show and Tell’ we would like the children to bring in a photo or picture/drawing of someone who is special to them. Below are the dates for the children’s second ‘Show and Tell’:
Friday 31st January 2020
Friday 7th February 2020
Friday 14th February 2020
