Welcome to the Foundation
Shooting Stars Unit!
Routines and systems:
* We start the day in our Key Worker groups, welcoming the children, sharing their news and introducing activities for the day.
*This is followed by ‘Busy time’ where the children explore the activities and initiate their own learning through play both indoors and outdoors.
*In the middle of the morning we have a speaking and listening or phonics session followed by snack in our key worker groups.
*Children then return to busy time and end the morning with stories or songs for F1 children and Literacy or Numeracy for F2 children.
*This routine is repeated in the afternoon, focussing on different curriculum areas during carpet times.
Throughout the day children also work at targeted activities and in small groups with staff to develop their skills in the different areas of the curriculum.
The staff in the Unit this year are Mrs Owens and Miss Cartledge who will work mainly with F1 and Mrs Wregg and Mrs Wright who will work will F2. In the afternoons we will also have extra support from Mrs Greenfield and Mrs Bloszyk.
Our new class pets!
The children are continuing to get to know our two class guinea pigs Bobby and Freddy and they are getting used to us!
The children have learnt a lot about what they like to eat and how they interact with each other. They have also learnt how to stroke a guinea pig and how they like to be held. We have all enjoyed watching them grow bigger.
The children had great fun making and eating their own pancakes and learnt a lot at the same time!
Our new topic is Superheroes!
