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 Spring 1 is space. We are calling the topic 'Out of this world'. The children will be learning about stories to do with space and story structure, writing stories, finding 1 less and subtraction (rocket count down), weighing, shape and pattern, space themed investigations and role play on a space theme. Our main texts will be 'Whatever Next', 'That's not my Robot' , 'The way back home' and 'Aliens love Underpants'. At the end of this half term we plan to have an alien dress up day to celebrate all we have learnt about space!

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.



Click here to watch a clip of the correct pronunciation of the phonemes and use our Jolly Phonics booklet to help your child learn the actions to match the sounds.

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
