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 Summer 1 is 'Living things'. Our main texts for this topic are Jack and the Beanstalk, The very Hungry Caterpillar, What the Ladybird Heard, Snail Trail and Superworm. We are going to be growing beans and writing bean diaries, learning how to care for animals (we may have some snail and worm visitors to our classroom) and learning about healthy eating. If you have any interesting pets at home please let us know and we will see if we can arrange for them to come for a visit.  The outside shed is already a builders shed (the children's choice) and inside we have an ice cream shop (again the children's choice). We hope it will be selling healthy ice creams! In maths we will be learning about counting, adding, subtracting, doubling, halving and sharing. We will also be learning about time, length and money.  PE will continue to be on a Wednesday and Thursday and we will be continuing with apparatus and will be starting learning some cooperative games. We will continue to use the ICT suite on a Thursday and will be looking at programs linked to living things. We look forward to seeing the children showing their dinosaur learning characteristics as they find out about living things!

If you missed our Parent's Welcome meeting then have a look at the powerpoint for an overview of the year and some ideas about how to support our curriculum at home.



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
