Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Foundation Stage Class Page.

Here you will be able to find out what we are learning at school.

Keep an eye out for newly added photos and information about our learning during the year.


Our first topic in the Summer Term will be On the Farm. For our Farm topic we have many exciting activities planned. One of which is having living eggs in the classrooms and watching them hatch into chicks. We will also be going on a school trip to Church Farm on Tuesday 16th May 2017.

We will be practising for our performance all about the Farm. This will be performed by the Leopards and Tigers together as a year group on Wednesday 24th May 1.30pm and Thursday 25th May 9.15am. More information will be provided during the term.  

Swimming will begin this term. Foundation Stage Swimming will be on Mondays and Fridays. Swimming will replace P.E and due to swimming being on a Friday, children will only be participating in Forest School every other week on a Friday morning.

For the second half of the term we will be learning about lots of different Mini-beasts and hope to grow our own butterflies. We will also be talking a lot about the transition into year one and spending time ensuring the children are happy and ready for September.

Autumn Term

Our First Half Term

Our first topic this year is ‘All About ME!’ We will be learning lots about each other whilst also focusing on a Kipper book each week and completing lots of activities which relate to it.

These are some of the Kipper books we will be reading; Kipper, Kipper’s Toy box, Kipper’s little friends, Kipper’s Birthday, Kipper’s Monster and One Year with Kipper etc.

We will be talking all about Kipper and ourselves. Everyone is special! We will be thinking about the differences and the similarities between ourselves and others.

Our Second Half Term

Our next topic will be ‘People who help us’. We will be learning about all the different people who may help us either on a daily basis or in an emergency. We are also hoping to spend a couple of weeks learning about Superheroes.

To close the term, we will be learning all about Christmas.
