transition week

We had a fantastic transition week in our new classes. All the children were brilliant and enjoyed their time at school. Please click on the link below to read our newsletter for more information about transition week and about starting school in September.


Meet the staff

In our unit we have a lot of adults who help us learn. Their names are: Mrs Nelson, Mrs Pickering, Mrs Newhall, Mrs Kilner, Mrs Baker, Mrs Barker, Miss Morrell, Mrs Prince and Mrs Rushforth.

A sneaky peak inside our classroom...

Here's a sneaky peak of a few of our new areas inside the classroom. We have lots of areas for you to explore including; painting, creative, sand, water, maths, home corner, a brand new tinkering table as well as many more!

Look at what we love to do outside...

Our outdoor area has lots of things for you to do! We have a mud pit for making mud pies, a willow igloo and tunnel and also our den. You will be able to go on bug hunts, look after the plants and even use the bikes and scooters to travel around on.

Here are some photographs of our outdoor area. 

Dinner time

At dinner time you will be given a coloured, wrist band and taken over to the dinner hall with your teacher. Then you will line up and wait for your dinner. There are lots of adults around so if you need help all you need to do is put your hand up.

After you  have eaten your dinner you will then have playtime in our outdoor area.

What we do in FS2

During your time in foundation stage you will do lots of fun and exciting things. Take a look at the photographs below of some of the experiences the children have had.
