Welcome to Foundation Stage!
We are really excited about the year ahead and look forward to helping the children grow in confidence, develop their curiosity and make sense of the world around them. We recognise that little people learn best when they are active and that this learning involves other people, objects, ideas and events. Therefore, we believe that Early Years education should be as practical as possible and our EYFS setting has an ethos of learning through play.

Help with some housework (vacuuming, washing or tidying your bedroom).
Help to set the table.
Help to cook the family dinner or pudding.
Help your adult with some gardening.
Wash the family car
Or just give them as many hugs and kisses as physically possibleJ
On Monday, send us a photo of you being really helpful and kind. We will look through all the photos and see how many we can put on the website.

Sing and dance -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TgLtF3PMOc – can you join in with the words and actions? If you start counting from number 1, how many numbers can you write down?
Can you make a story book? – it could be about pirates, princesses, space or even dinosaurs, you choose. Don’t forget you’ll need a front cover, pictures and some great sentences telling everybody your story. When you have finished, don’t forget to read your story to a grown up – you are now an author!
Putting your key words onto pieces of paper, can you run to the correct one, as your grown-up calls it out? High-five the paper and run back. How quickly can you do it?
