Welcome to Foundation One with Mrs Stabler and Mrs Hutchinson
Thank you for all your support in settling the children into Foundation One. Myself and Mrs Hutchinson are so proud of how the children are settling into school life. This term we will be learning about the rules and routines of F1, making new friends, as well as getting to know all the different people who help us in school.
Our Autumn term topics in Foundation One are: Do you want to be friends?, People who help us and Christmas.
In literacy we will be listening to and retelling lots of new stories using actions and story maps to help us. We will be talking about the key events in the book and retelling them in an order, as well as discussing the different characters from the story. Reading at home with your child encourages a love for books and supports the development of your child’s language, vocabulary and imagination. It makes a big difference to the progress they make in school.
In phonics we will be listening and tuning into sounds, as well as learning to hear and say rhyming words such as: dog/log, cat/hat. This will prepare us for when we begin learning our letter sounds, following the read write inc programme after Christmas.
In numeracy we are learning how to count to 10 and beyond, as well as recognising numbers to 10. In shape space and measures we are learning shape names, how to create patterns and using language of size.
Over this term we will be working hard to develop and strengthen our finger muscles to prepare us for writing. We will be having lots of fun with dough disco and funky finger activities.
Our routines and reminders
Myself and Mrs Hutchinson are really looking forward to working with you and your children. Please come and see us if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support
Mrs Stabler and Mrs Hutchinson
