The highlight of this week for many children was finding out who their new teacher is going to be in Year 1. All the children spent Wednesday in their new classes and were very excited when they returned.

During the week we continued our exploration of materials by looking at floating and sinking. The children then used recycled materials to make a boat which culminated in our own ‘Regatta’ on Friday afternoon when we tested them out in our paddling pool!

What a fantastic week in Foundation! The weather has been amazing and the children have loved being outside in the courtyard. Our pizza theme culminated on Thursday with their homemade pizzas being a great success. 

We hope you all enjoyed our ‘Fun Sports’ day, the children certainly had lots of fun and supported one another with lots of encouragement.

This week started with some super observational drawings of flowers from Isaac, Jorgia and Jasmine. The inside maths area was quickly transformed into a cafe by the children and capitalising on their interest we developed the outside playground with a Pizza Delivery Service. The children wrote labels for the bikes and had a system of directing the vehicles to the correct house numbers. Alex wrote a sign explaining where the vehicles had to park when it was tidy up time.

We also worked on our writing targets as we wrote about something we had done at the weekend.

Miss Stallworthy‘ earned the  most bookworms certificates this week and well done to Poppy, Freddie, Hayden and Amelia for achieving their handwriting certificates.

Finally, Happy Birthday to Freddie who turned 5 this week!

This week Foundation have joined the rest of the school by participating in Road Safety Week. This started on Monday with a visit from the Police and Fire Service, where we learned a little bit more about the jobs they do and how they help to keep us safe.

We have had lots of discussion about keeping safe as pedestrians and as passengers in cars which then led to some fantastic posters being made. We found out that all of the children in Foundation need to be using a car seat when travelling in a car and we hope you found the leaflet we sent home useful.

Finally on Friday we had a visit from the Ambulance service where the children got to sit in the response cars as well as an ambulance and some even had their heart rhythms checked!
