Welcome to Kingfisher and Owl Class Page

 

We are 2 classes of Foundation children.

In Kingfisher Class our teacher is called Mrs O’Carroll, and

in Owl Class our teacher is called Mrs McIntyre.  We also have two foundation TA's called Mrs Jackson and Mrs Daw.

We hope that you enjoy reading our class page.  We will be updating it with lots of our learning and things that we are enjoying about being in Foundation.

 

Phonics in Foundation

We use the Read, Write, Inc phonic programme to teach the children how to read sounds and words fluently.  Please use the link below to find out more about the Read, Write, Inc programme.  This link will help with sound pronunciation.

This term we have been focusing on settling into school, getting used to the school routine, getting to know each other and making friends. We have enjoyed exploring the inside and the outside environment in school. Please see the photos below for some of the things we have been getting up to this term.

Foundation 2016-2017

 

 

This half term we have been finding out about the season winter and Polar animals. So far we have found out facts about Arctic and Antarctic animals, and where we can find the Arctic and the Antarctic on a map. 

We have also been thinking about words we could use to describe Winter, such as foggy, windy, frosty, freezing, snowy. We then wrote down these words for a display. 

In continuous provision, we have been looking at maps and globes to find out where different Polar animals might live. We have also been playing with polar animals and creating habitats where they might live. In the role play area, we have been talking about how we stay warm and what we might use to keep warm.
