Welcome to the Foundation Stage
Welcome back to a brand new Academic Year, I hope you all had a wonderful Summer? We have missed you!
Miss Gray and I very much look forward to welcoming all our new and current F1 and F2 children and their families. We cannot wait to see you begin your Learning Journey with us at Kneesall. What will you achieve this year?
Although life at school will be different for all of us, this term promises to be another exciting learning experience with many fantastic opportunities. Our Autumn Term 1 topic is
Me and My Community
This topic supports children with settling into the new rules and routines of school and encourages them to make new friends and feel confident in their class. It teaches children about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. This topic also teaches children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.
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 www.coolmilk.com. 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.
