Foundation Stage

We will be uploading a weekly activity sheet for Nursery children to complete throughout the current school closure period.

We are pleased to let you know that your child can receive a daily phonics lesson whilst schools are closed. Phonics is the way we teach children to recognise the sounds in words. It helps your child to learn to read and is an essential part of your child’s education. Please Click here to access the resource




This half term our topic is “Let’s Grow.”

​In FSU this half term we will be looking at the changes that occur in our bodies as we grow. We will be learning about babies, toddlers and children and the things that they can do. We are also learning about mini-beasts.

​Our literacy lessons are focused on books about growing. These will include books like Titch
and The Very Hungry Caterpillar amongst many others.

In nursery, children will be learning to recognise numbers to 10 and will be sorting objects
by size, colour and shape.

Later in the half term we will be learning about Easter.

Stay safe and thank you for supporting your child’s learning.

Mrs Dunlevy, Mrs Doyle and all FSU staff.

​Further details are available on the FSU newsletter.

These children will bring an observation sheet home for parents and carers to record interests and achievements from home to be added to their learning journey. Learning journeys are available for parents and carers to see.




Every half term a Newsletter will be sent home outlining our topic and whole class learning intentions.
