Spring Term 2021 - Superheroes -The People Who Help Us

Introduction to Our Spring Term Topic- Super Heroes- The People Who Help Us 

It is with great pride that we are studying all the various roles of our Key Workers in Foundation in 2021. Never before have we been so grateful to those performing roles that are seen in the public eye, but are also largely unseen by many, but without which we couldn't function as a country. So thank you to the fire fighters, teachers, police, refuse collectors, cleaners, online delivery workers, cleaners, nurses, doctors, cooks, super market workers, postal workers, council workers, food donation workers, paramedics, head teachers, care home workers and many many more. In our eyes you are all heroes!! Thank you. We will be remembering you this New Year and the children will be writing to you to send their heart felt thank yous. Watch this space ! Very often it is the exceptional character qualities of our key workers that we are so grateful for. We will be discussing with the children what they regard as the essential qualities of a super hero and how they themselves can be a super hero to those that they know and come into contact with on a daily basis or those that they know ! 


Looking forward to working with you and your children this New Year 2021.

Things to Remember 

Please can you ensure your child arrives at school, with a warm coat, a named water bottle already filled with water and their reading book bag every day. 


Wednesday's are our PE days in Foundation. During the colder months we encourage the children to come to school in their jogging bottoms, trainers, PE T-shirt and school jumper or cardigan to keep warm and their winter coats. Please bring their book bags too on these days and water bottles.


Please can you try and hear your child read at least 3 times a week or more. Ideally once every day for 5 minutes is the best option, please sign their reading diary to help us track their progress in their reading. Every Friday your child's books will be refreshed and changed. Thanks for your partnership in supporting your child with their reading.





Seesaw - Online Learning Platform- Parent Partnership



This online learning journal will be an excellent way of working in partnership with school for the education of your child. We will be sharing the learning that takes place in the school day and hopefully capturing some of those magic moments in EYFS for you to celebrate at home with your child. We would also recommend parents upload proud learning moments at home, or special family events, awards or discoveries of the natural world. This will be a great talking tool with the class during school hours. This year we ask for no show and tell to be brought into school, instead Show and Tell will be online, so please upload any photos you would like your child to share with their class to their online journal. Please can you ensure that you fill in the Seesaw consent forms and adhere to the rules surrounding using Seesaw too.

The Christmas Nativity - Foundation 2020

The children in Foundation enjoyed putting on their own Nativity for the day on Thursday 3rd December. They chose their own Nativity character and acted out the various parts of the story. They even had a go at doing some narration for the story. Enjoy !
