We work extremely hard throughout Foundation and hope our class page gives you an overview of our exciting and engaging Creative Curriculum; as well as all the fun activities and workshops we participate in throughout the school year!

Class Activities - Chinese New Year

The children in Foundation 1 enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year. They listened to the story 'The Great Rat Race', practised some Chinese writing and had their very own Chinese Banquet. 

Class Activities - Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Foundation 1 children engaged in a range of activities linked to our story 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears.' They helped put instructions together to make porridge for snack and got to choose raisins or honey to add to their porridge.They ate their porridge all up just like Goldilocks! 'I love Raisins.' said Elsie Mae Fisher 'This is yummy' said Rebecca.

The children sorted different objects from the story into three categories, big, medium and small and enjoyed programming the bee-bot to move forward to get to the teddy bear.

Class Activities - Indoor and Outdoor learning

The children in Foundation 1 love to learn indoors and outdoors. They have enjoyed mark making, reading in the garden and playing rhyming games.

Class Activities - St. David's Day and World Book Day

World Book Day was so much fun! The children were so excited to come to Nursery in their Pyjamas. They listened to the story 'Dear Zoo' and shared their story books with their friends. 

The children learnt all about the Welch Patron St. David and decorated daffodils to mark this special day.

Class Activities - Spring

The sun is shining, the signs of Spring have finally arrived and the children are enjoying learning outdoors. The children in Foundation 1 have been learning all about 'Growing', 'Mini-beasts' and the 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' this term. They have engaged in a range of exciting, hands on activities including; planting beans, exploring the woodlands to find mini-beasts, sequencing the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', learning about the life-cycle of a butterfly, sorting healthy and unhealthy food, exploring our senses by tasting the different fruit the caterpillar ate and making repeated patterns to create a caterpillar. Just like the very hungry caterpillar the children in Foundation 1 are growing every day and continue to make me proud with their passion and enthusiasm to learn.

 

Class Activities - Story time

Foundation 1 children enjoyed story time in the sun shine with Gill and Erin, who came from  Stoneycroft Children's Centre to read 'The Gingerbread Man.' The children talked about how the characters were feeling in the story and enjoyed joining in with the repeated refrains ' Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the ginger bread man.'Thank you for a lovely session, we look forward to the next story time.

Class Activity: Oh I do Like to be beside the sea side

To introduce our new topic 'summer' Foundation 1 brought their towels in to school to go for a trip to the beach. The children were so excited to paddle their feet in the water, build sand castles, collect shells and play bat and ball. The children shared their experiences of going to the beach and talked about what they could see, hear, smell and do. 

Class Activity: Fun Day

Foundation 1 were so excited to have Chase from Paw Patrol come along to our fun day! The children played pass the parcel where Freya and Rebecca won a prize! The children enjoyed dancing and singing and Chase even chose Joshua and Anji for their best dance moves. All of the children were so lucky to get their photograph taken with Chase to show their family. To end a fantastic fun filled day the children enjoyed some party food and party games.
