Welcome to Sycamore Class!
Our Foundation Stage Unit has 60 children split into two classes. Sycamore class is taught by Miss Cozens and Willow class is taught by Mrs Hamilton and Mrs Lawson. Foundation Stage have 3 teaching assistants every morning and 2 in the afternoons. The teaching assistant hours are covered by our fantastic Teaching Assistants - Mrs Gladwin, Mrs Croucher, Mrs Raszpla, Mrs Hillyer, Mrs Semanaj, Mrs Rose and Mrs Walker. We start our day in 2 registration groups but spend the rest of our time in much smaller groups. We have 4 indoor rooms, 2 outdoor areas, a large field area and woodland. Around 50% of our time is spent outdoors so we dress according to the weather and make the most of our fantastic outdoor resources. The children take an active role in their learning including planning new topics and themes and how we will explore them. This makes Foundation Stage a fun and exciting place to be.
Welcome to the Spring Term in Foundation Stage and we hope that you had a wonderful Easter break.
Our topic this term is “British Animals”. We are beginning our topic by reading the ‘Percy the Park Keeper’ stories. Each week we will be learning about a different British animal including foxes, hedgehogs, owls, squirrels, rabbits, badgers, rabbits and insects.
Our class trip on Tuesday 15th May will be to Chiltern Open Air Museum where we will be taking part in an ‘Owl Babies’ workshop to support our topic of animals. Other events this term are class assemblies, Country Dancing and Sports Day to which parents are invited. Please see school newsletter for dates. There will also be a whole school Eco week, County Induction Day and Open Evening.
ART APRONS, WELLIES AND RAINCOATS must be in school every day and please remember to name them.
PE Foundation Stage have now started PE. Our PE day is on Wednesday mornings so please make sure that your PE kits are in school on this day and all items are named.
Growth Mindset: Tylers Green First School are a Growth Mindset School and encourage children to have a positive outlook with their learning. The Children have been introduced to MEG and MITCH, two superheroes who help the children maintain a positive mindset with their learning. Please look for the link below to see the acronyms for MEG and MITCH, and how they can help the children learn.
Tylers Green are also looking at supporting children with other aspects of learning. We are encouraging children to be resilient learners, and will be given a sticker for their leaf, which is on display in the classroom.
