What a fantastic first few weeks in foundation! They have all settled in really well and are very enthusiastic about learning.
So far in phonics we have learned these sounds: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, g, c, k and learned what words begin with these sounds. We are starting to read and blend these sounds together to read simple words.
In maths we have learned the numbers 1 – 9. We have made the numbers with objects, recognised the numbers and written them numbers in glitter.
Our provision is helping us learn new skills like colour mixing, making different shades of blue and green. We have been practicing our cutting skills in the workshop and outside digging using the spades building up our gross motor strength.
In the children’s first few PE session we have played some simple games using our listening skills. The children can now all find a space.
The children now all have reading books and will be reading 1 to 1 with an adult each week. The children will also receive home learning tasks on a Friday to be completed over the weekend. This will help the children apply their school learning at home.
We have started morning activities that will take place each morning. All letters that you may have missed can be found on the parent information board located outside foundation 2.
