Together We Achieve



Welcome to the Foundation Stage


Welcome back to Autumn Term 2 , I hope you have all had a safe and restful break?

Miss Gray and I look forward to welcoming you all back.  We cannot wait to see 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 Autumn Term 2 topic is


Once Upon a Time 

This project supports children to develop a love of stories and reading. It encourages children to learn, retell and act out familiar and traditional tales including CinderellaGoldilocksLittle Red Riding HoodThe Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.


Our topic this term Once Upon a Time is also accompanied by a mini topic: 


Sparkle and Shine 

This project teaches children about the celebrations that take place during the autumn and winter seasons, and focus on the significance and symbolism of light at this time of year.


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 year but will allow us to stretch our creativity. Together we achieve!


Things to remember:  

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

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. 


Thank you for your continued support and we very much look forward to seeing you all back in school.
