Welcome to Foundation Stage!

Pine and Elm Classes

with Mrs Lounds, Mrs Moss, Mrs Mounser, Mrs Fairclough, Mrs Miller, Miss Kirby & Mrs Wright


Welcome to Foundation Stage at Greythorn.  Please see below for all the exciting things we do in our classes!

Our topic for this half term is 'Telling Tales.' During this topic we will be learning about traditional tales starting with 'The Gingerbread man'.   We will be using these stories to stimulate the children's reading and writing. Inside we are going to have a role play bakery and outside a music stage, reading area and storytelling shed.  We will continue to have phonics sessions each day.  In Maths we will be continuing to learn about addition and subtraction with a focus on finding 1 more and 1 less and adding and subtracting small numbers. We will also be weighing this half term to link in with baking gingerbread people! PE this half term will have a racing and chasing games focus. We will be using our imaginations to create artwork linked with the stories we read and carrying out investigations such as testing what happens to different biscuits when we put them in liquids.  The teachers continue to have  their PPA time on a Wednesday afternoon when Mrs Holton and Mrs Riley will be doing creative activities and Forest Schools.

Please remember that individual reading books can be changed on any day...send your child in with their reading book and diary in their hand and we will put it in the reading book change box to be changed that day.  


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 day is Wednesday but we may do physical activity at other points in the week.



Thanks for your ongoing support
