A bookbag-which will be given to your child by Mrs Frances after the Reading workshop at the end of September.

A pair of named wellington boots.

A waterproof coat or jacket.

Things you don't need!

Water bottles-water is provided at regular intervals through the day, and at lunchtime.

Spare clothes in case of little accidents, as we have a stock of these.

Our First Weeks At Big School!

Foundation Stage has been very busy this week, getting to know new friends, playing with new toys, and working hard at learning the new School routines. 

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

As part of our number and literacy learning, we have been enjoying the traditional tale The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Foundation Stage have been listening to different versions of the story, retelling the story in different ways such as using puppets and masks, and making a bridge using our outdoor toys.

Mrs Frances set them a bridge building challenge using the small construction resources. Working with a partner, could they construct a bridge over the river to help the billy goats reach the tasty fresh grass? The goats had to be able to climb up onto the bridge, and down the other side.  We think they made some very effective bridges. Well done Foundation Stage!
