Welcome To Foundation
Welcome to Foundation from Miss Camwell, Miss Hopkinson & Miss Price.
Our foundation team are so enthusiastic about starting the school year with our very excited children. It has been a pleasure to see so many children using their manners and listening ears showing us they are ready for school.
Miss Price and Mrs Shiells welcomed everyone into bumblebee class. We’ve loved hearing what your children have been up to over the summer and what they are excited to learn in school. Miss Camwell, Miss Hopkinson, Mrs Morris and Miss Cross couldn’t wait to meet the new Ladybird children and all of the children settled beautifully.
This term we will be learning about each other and getting to know our way around the school. We will be starting our phonics sessions by introducing children to environmental sounds and listening skills. We will be spending time choosing their first reading books to come home and sharing stories in class to really develop a true love of reading. The children will be exploring the numbers 1-5 so that they develop a deep understanding and mastery of number.
In line with the Whitehouse way, we will encourage children to be ready, respectful and safe. Remaining calm and developing a sense of independence in Foundation is extremely important in order to foster a sense of self-awareness.
We are committed to working alongside families to provide the best possible start to their school experience. Please don’t hesitate to speak to one of us in Foundation – no question is a silly question. We look forward to working together as a team this year.
