Together We Achieve



Welcome to the Foundation Stage


Welcome back to Summer Term 1, I hope you have all had a lovely rest? 


Miss Gray and I look forward to seeing you continue your Learning Journey with us at Kneesall. What will you achieve this year? 


Although life at school continues to be different for all of us, this term promises to be another exciting learning experience with many fantastic opportunities. Our Summer Term 1 topic's are:


Sunshine and Sunflowers

This seasonal topic provides opportunities for outdoor learning and teaches children how to care for the plants and animals in their local environment and how to stay safe in the sun.


Shadows and Reflections 

This is the companion topic to Sunshine and Sunflowers

This topic teaches children about natural phenomena, including shadows, reflections and echoes. They explore how shadows are formed and how they can change.


The Foundation Stage prides itself on adapting according to the interests of the children, providing spontaneous learning opportunities adhering to the core principles of the Foundation Stage. The possibilities and opportunities are endless!


Finally, we very much look forward to joining in the many wonderful whole school events which will be done differently this half term but will allow us to stretch our creativity. 


Things to remember:  

To ensure that your child is prepared for each school day please send them with their carrier bag, reading diary,  a named water bottle, a waterproof coat, wellington boots, a change of socks and at least two pairs of spare pants and bottoms. 


A quick reminder to parents if you haven’t already, if your child would like milk please register at Under fives receive free milk!


On  the day children have PE they will come to school in their PE kit, their allocated PE day will be a Friday afternoon. 


Thank you once again for your continued support
