Welcome to Foundation Stage!

Pine and Elm Classes

with Mrs Lounds, Mrs Moss, Mrs Cutt, Mrs Redfern, Mrs Holton & Mrs Wright


Welcome to Foundation Stage at Greythorn.  Please see below for all the exciting things we do in our classes!
Our topic for the second half of the summer term is 'Out and about'. We will be learning about our local environment and the world around us. We will be finding out about journeys and looking at maps. Our main texts will be 'The Naughty Bus', 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' and 'Tom and the land of the Dinosaurs'. We will also be finding out about pirates and going  on a journey and picnic to the field. We have planned a visit on Friday 29th June to Brackenhurst Environmental Education centre near Southwell. Here we will be pond dipping and visiting the Animal Care Unit. It has always been a really good day out and a wonderful learning experience for the children. Our maths focuses will be number bonds, one more and one less, weighing, adding and subtracting and problem solving. Mrs Riley and Mrs Holton will continue to cover PPA time on a Wednesday afternoon when they will continue with art and creative activities and forest school activities. PE will be on a Wednesday morning and a Friday morning. We will be preparing for sports day, playing team games and learning racing and chasing games. We hope to be outside so please ensure your child has a complete PE kit in school including plimsolls. 

If your child has done something special at home that you would like to contribute to their "learning journey" then please download a wowcher to fill in or pop into class.

Please bring a water bottle for your child. We encourage children to drink throughout the day to keep them hydrated and ready to learn.


Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school all the time. Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday, but we may do physical activity at other points in the week. 


Children will be going out to Forest School (outside activities & exploring the environment) every other Wednesday. Please send your child in joggers/ trousers, wellies/trainers and weather appropriate clothing. 


Thanks for your ongoing support
