Welcome to Foundation!
You will have been told if your child has a morning or an afternoon session for the first three days. For these first few days you are welcome to bring your child into the unit, through the side gate in the bottom playground, where a member of staff will welcome you and support your child to find their peg etc. The rest of the school will already be settled into class by this point. You will be able to come into the classroom with your child if you feel it’s necessary.
At the end of the school day please wait on the bottom playground, near the slope on the far end, ready to collect your child. When we dismiss the children we will do so one at a time when we see each child’s parent. This does take time initially as we are learning all the new faces but it is important that each child is safely dismissed at the end of the day.
All children will be provided with a named plastic bottle so they can have a drink of water during the day. Additionally all children will have the opportunity to eat a piece of fruit for a snack. This is provided by the school and is free for all children in the early years. If you wish, you may provide your child with an extra fruit snack – just in case the day’s choice is not to their taste!
We have provided you with a copy of the learning objectives we will be focusing on this term, so that you are aware of what your child will be learning. You may be able to support them at home, for example, by going to the library and finding books linked to your child’s learning. There are additional suggested activities on the back which are optional home learning projects. There is no deadline for these activities and evidence of any home learning is always gratefully received.
Please could we remind you to label all of your child’s clothing and belongings. Many will be wearing identical pieces of clothing and it is very difficult to identify the owners of unnamed possessions. All children are expected to wear the correct uniform each day.
We have been busy during the holidays making an exciting Foundation environment for your children with lots of lovely experiences. Our aim is for each child to have a smooth and happy start to their school life. If there is anything you wish to discuss further, please be sure to speak to a member of staff.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
The Foundation Team
