Foundation Fun Spring One – 2018

This half term our topic is Based on the book ‘Never tickle a tiger’ by Pamela Butchart. It is about a little girl who visits the zoo and tries to tickle a tiger. During PE we will be moving like animals and older children are learning a line dance.

We will be matching upper and lower letters and learning letter names as well as the sounds they make. We will be learning alphabetical order and finding out about alliteration.

In number time we will be recognising and creating patterns and finding missing numbers in number lines. Older children will be working on one more and one less than a number too.

Thank you for reading every day with your children lots of them have reached over 100 reads. This really helps your child develop a lifelong love of reading.

Please name all your child’s belongings, and send children in warm clothes for forest fun days. We go outside everyday so coats are needed. Please bring your child to school every day, most children can cope with coughs and colds. It would be helpful to send your child some tissues if they have a runny nose. If they are too ill to attend school, please let us.

We have welcomed around ten new families into school and some of our younger children are staying at school for 30 hours. We are very full and appreciate your patience with the busy drop off and pick up times in the cloakroom.

Please come and talk to me if you need any help or advice.

Thank you

Julia Mayhew and the Foundation staff team.
