Foundation Stage's Diary

We are a team of very happy staff and children. The staff include: Miss Amy Sabin (Class Teacher); Miss Rachel Newton (Class Teacher); Mrs Jo Hope (Teaching Assistant) Mrs Claire Blois (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Janet Clarke (Teaching Assistant). We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which promotes an exciting, first experience of school and helps to instill a love of learning in the children. We love to have fun and try to create a happy, relaxed and stimulating environment both inside and outside the classroom. We want to give the children a smiling start to their school career. Please have a look at our diary page to see us at work and play.

Autumn 2: Peculiar Potions!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Saturday, November 18, 2017

Our Autumn 2 topic is 'Peculiar Potions'. The children are already loving this topic as they can really use their imaginations! During the half term we will be reading and writing our own potion recipes and spells, using magic to add one more and take one away and meeting a real witch called Babs. We can't wait!

Here we are already getting stuck in...

Happy Diwali Day 2017

Reading mornings!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Saturday, November 18, 2017

Thank you to our wonderful parents who have made reading mornings such a success. What a fantastic start to each day. The children come in each morning calm and ready to learn. 

Happy children!

Great first week!

A massive well done to all of the children and families for a fantastic first week at school! The children have enjoyed getting to know one another, exploring their new classroom and learning daily routines. As soon as we have received photograph permission from all parents we can upload photographs of the children and share our journey with you.

Reminder-the sign up sheet is now available in your child's classroom to sign up for our phonic, reading and writing workshop.

Welcome to Foundation!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Thursday, August 24, 2017
Hello to all our new children and families, 

We look forward to starting our Foundation year together soon and cannot wait to get to know you all over the academic year. Our first topic will be 'Walking through the Jungle'. As well as learning about life in the jungle and about jungle animals and their young, we will also be sharing your wonderful summer projects (your memory boxes). This is a lovely way to get to know each other and for the children to identify similarities amongst themselves. In addition, we will start our first floor book together where the children's questions drive our topics. 

Please ask if you are unsure about anything and remember our door is always open! This transitional period is very exciting but also huge for families and we recognise all routines are new and can be a little daunting, but you're not alone! 

Don't forget to check the classroom whiteboard daily for parental notices and diary dates for parental workshops, parents evenings and family activities. 

Have a wonderful last week of the summer holidays and we look forward to welcoming you into your new classroom on Tuesday 5th September.

A reminder of the first week of school:

Tuesday 5th Sept-8.40am-12pm
Wednesday 6th Sept-8.40am-1.15pm
Thursday 7th Sept- 8.40am-1.15pm
Friday 8th Sept- 8.40am-3pm (full time) 

See you soon!

Miss Sabin and the Foundation Team
