Making our world a better place

Foundation – Acorn & Oak

Our Foundation teachers are:

Acorn Class – Miss Greenwood

Oak Class – Miss Lain

Our Teaching Assistants are: Mrs Stuttard, Mrs Gray, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Adcock


Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning every day so it is important that they always come to school with a hooded coat and have a pair of named wellies in school. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.

Thursday – PE

A Foundation newsletter is sent out via School Comms at the end of each week.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three times a week. Their book will be changed when they can read it confidently and it has been read at home.

Big talk: Children are given a topic to discuss at home once a week and are expected to come to school with a sentence to share.

Maths: Practical maths activities are suggested to do at home that fit in with the current teaching, for example, hunting for numbers.
