Welcome to the Foundation Stage Webpage
Our First Week in School
During our first week in school we learnt lots of new routines but more importantly we started to develop our relationships with old friends and new.
Lunch with our grown ups
We invited our grown ups in to have lunch with us. We showed the adults our routine and ate together. The lunches at school are very nice!
We learnt to ride bikes during a week long 'balanceabilty' course. Everyone learnt to glide on a bike and travelled around the hall safely. By the end of the week we were able to use pedal bikes as well. We all received a certificate and are now going to remove our stabilisers at home.
Children in Need
We raised a grand total of £452.12 for Children in Need! An absolutely incredible amount! Well done Elburton!
Anti Bullying Week
Foundation have been wearing odd socks during anti bullying week to celebrate what makes us all unique!
Our Remembrance display was looking rather magnificent in the moonlight. We all observed 2 minutes silence and discussed the importance of remembering those who gave so much for us.
Popcorn in Phonics
We learnt the 'p' sound in phonics. To give our new learning a context we made popcorn. We had great listening skills when we listened to the kernels 'popping'. Sharing and eating the popcorn was nice too.
Foundation children made stewed apples. The skills learnt in this process were peeling, chopping, slicing, boiling and of course eating!
To encourage our Foundation children to select different food at lunchtime, other than a jacket potato! Our kitchen staff have cooked a selection of food for the children to taste during free flow.
Plymouth Library Service
Our Foundation children were visited by the Plymouth Library Service. They all listened very nicely to a story and each child was been given a book to take home and keep.
Nutley Lodge Care Home
Our Foundation children joined Stepping Stones Pre School for a trip to Nutley Lodge Care Home. We sang songs & started to build relationships with our new friends. We will be visiting every week to sing, read, play games & more. A lovely way to bridge the age gap.
