The Foundation Class is also known as 'Flamingos' and this year there are 29 very lively, fun loving Flamingos! Mrs Jordan is the class teacher and the children are also supported by Mrs Carpenter and Mrs Duggins who job share and Mrs Halford who works in Flamingos all week. Mrs Williamson is the class teacher on Fridays and she supports the children with their numeracy skills in the morning and organises ICT, Music and 'food' enrichment activities during the afternoon.
We are very excited about the start of term and can't wait to get to know our new Flamingos. The children will have a gentle start to school, allowing staff to spend quality time with individuals and allowing children to feel happy, safe and secure.
We hope to get to meet families too and spend time in our 'settling in meetings' working together to support our new starters. Please contact the office if you would like a meeting (let us know when you are available) and we will send you an appointment time. These usually happen during the first 3 weeks of term.
On the 13th September (4-5pm) we will be hosting our Flamingo Family sausage sizzle. Come along and meet other new families. It's a great way to get to know the school and to start to feel part of our community. Details will be sent home soon.
Families receive regular email updates of the activities their children have been involved in with a chance to email back pictures and messages to show how they have been supporting learning at home too. Children love to show and talk about their pictures on the class whiteboard.
Flamingos will have PE every Wednesday morning, working with Mrs Carpenter and Mr Aust (who supports PE in school). This will begin later in the term. We do like to keep PE kits in all school week and will send them home at the end of each term for washing. Please make sure your child has a complete set of spare underwear in their PE bag.
We encourage families to send a huge variety of photographs and information from home. Our aim is for every Flamingo to have a pic collage on our Flamingo Family Display in the corridor.
Please make sure your child is familiar with their school belongings and know where to find their name labels or identifying features!
All information can be found in the booklets you received in your school packs. Any questions or concerns, please speak to a member of the EYFS Team who are always happy to listen 😀
