Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Mrs Jackson - Foundation Teacher

Summer Term (Foundation Stage)

 It seems incredible that we are already in the last term of Foundation Stage.  The children have come so far and have matured and honed their skills so well that the teaching team is now primarily concerned with preparing them for the new and exciting challenges of Year 1.  The classroom will have a slightly more formal air and all children will have regular writing sessions with an adult. We really value parental help in preparing the children, so reading and writing at home is always appreciated, as is basic counting and numeral recognition opportunities.


The fun, however, does not stop. Young children still learn best when they are allowed to define their own learning and can be exploratory and creative and we will continue to encourage that throughout the term.


There will be all the usual final term activities to look forward to: a visit to Belton House, Sports Day (our KS 1 and Foundation Stage potted sports in the morning as well as the whole school event in the afternoon), transition morning to meet their new teacher, Teddy Bears' picnic and so much more. End of Key Stage reports will be issued in July.


Keep WOW Moments coming in, we love sharing them.  Show and Tells need to be focused and either very special or connected to our topics, but they are a great way of building children's confidence and self esteem.


Please keep your child using Teach Your Monster To Read, (if you have lost your login, let me know!), as we are finding it very powerful in consolidating basic phonics in an entertaining way.


School uniform is still coming in unnamed, please help us by labelling all items, including shoes (children remove them in the sand pit).


If we are lucky enough to have any summery weather, please ensure that your child has a sun hat and is adequately covered in sun cream at the start of the day.  Only send sun protection in if you are sure that your child can manage the application themselves.


Don't forget that Friday afternoons are for book changing, but feel free to stay and browse through your child's work tray, chat to the teaching team or look at our displays.


If you want to know what learning looks like in Foundation Stage browse through the photos below, check us out on Twitter or just come in and see what we do, everyone is welcome whether you might have an odd afternoon to spare or can offer us regular help.
