  • Our First Family Friday! - Come and join us for International 'Dot' Day.

    Published 12/09/19, by Sara Lindley

    We are keeping you busy next week with a phonics evening on the Thursday night (19th) at 6pm and then our first 'Family Friday' the next day (20th).

    So, here we go with our new idea....

    We are inviting any parents or carers of the F1 Seahorse and the F2 Starfish children to come and join us in the hall straight after you have dropped them off in the Foundation Unit at 9:00am on Friday 20th September. Younger siblings are also welcome as this is all about 'Family time'.

    Drop your child off as usual so we can settle them down and do the register. Then if you could walk around the front of the school to the main door we will welcome you into the hall.

    The children will join us as soon as they have been registered when we will read the story 'The Dot' and show you some of the work we have made as a result of being inspired by the book.

    We will also take the time to demonstrate our 'Sign of the Week' so that you can see how we are teaching the children all different types of communication.

    After that we will take the children back to their classroom so that they can have their fruit and milk and resume their school day as normal whilst you have a nice cuppa, biscuit and chat with Mrs Gerrard and Miss Robinson. Mrs Lindley will find it hard to stay away, so you will probably see her too! 

    We might also use this time to keep you informed of any resources you might find useful.

    We obviously understand that not all parents can make a Friday Morning and wouldn't want their child to miss out. Don't worry, we will have some adults to help with unaccompanied children, so they get a chance to be part of the experience too. Alternatively, if you can't make it one week but you have arranged with one of the other parents for your child to go with them, just let us know and that would be great too.

    We also have a couple of other times available for you to come into school on an individual basis should you only be free on other days - Come in and chat to us and we will try to be as flexible as possible.

    The first 'Family Friday' will probably take about 40 minutes in total as we get used to a new routine. 

    The following Friday is actually a whole school assembly for Harvest Festival so we will resume ‘Family Friday’ on Friday 4th October where we will introduce you to our lovely 'Story Sacks'. You will also be able to browse through the visiting book fair that is in school that week. Your very own private viewing. 

    We have lots of ideas for our Family Friday's including library visits, Farm shop trips to buy five fat sausages so they can sizzle in the pan. We are even looking at a trip to the swimming pool! We hope you will really enjoy the sessions and your support will play an important part in making them a success.

    Looking forward to seeing you next Friday (20th) at 9:00am.

    If you have any questions come and have a chat or use our Foundation Unit email address

    Kindest Regards

    Mrs Lindley.

  • Seahorses and Starfish Everywhere!

    Published 06/09/19, by Sara Lindley

    Welcome to the blog page for the Foundation Unit.

    We are calling our room "The Rockpool" this year as our whole school is learning about the animals that live in the oceans.

    Our F1 class will be known as "Seahorses"

    Our F2 class will be known as "Starfish"

    You have already had your first newsletter, but I have attached it to the bottom of this blog should you need another copy.

    Click here to see how busy they have all been already over the last few days!

    We have really appreciated your patience this week allowing us to get used to the new routines and classroom arrangements. As you can appreciate we have a big F2 class this year and drop off and pick up times are work in progress. We are confident that as the children become more independent and routines become familiar, this handover period will settle into a calm, safe transition.

    Things that you can do to help...

    Bear with us!

    The room is set up hopefully to have a flow. As the children come in, they could firstly find their named starfish or seahorse and put it onto the correct dinner board. They could then drop off their book bag into the correct basket and finally hang up their coats and leave their packed lunches in the crates. Then they will be ready to independently move to their Starfish or Seahorse corners where a member of staff will be waiting.  

    It would greatly assist us if, as soon as your child has happily gone to their corner, you could leave the cloakroom area allowing other parents to help their children and keeping the zone as free flow as possible. With such a lot of children all coming in at the same time it can get congested. A member of staff  will be outside if you want to pass a message on or have a chat about your child. Or, if  you just want to have  general catch up with each other please feel free to do this just outside the cloakroom too.
