Foundation Stage Information

The Reception classes aim to foster independence in the children and we would ask you to support your child in this, such as allowing them to put on their coat, get their reading books ready to place in the box on the relevant day and place their book bags in their tray. We have different strategies in place such as self-registration and 'Own Learning Time', which will enhance these opportunities, as well as a helping hands board, whereby the children complete the weather chart, hand out the fruit and milk during snack time and assist the adults with other jobs in the classroom throughout the day. We add to some of these responsibilities throughout the year.

Our Learning 2017-2018

Terms 1 & 2

We started the term learning about ourselves and getting to know each other. We then looked at the seasons and all the changes we could see around us linked to Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk and enjoyed looking for different coloured leaves, berries and other signs of Autumn. We collected leaves and then used our senses to explore and describe them. 


We learnt about Harvest and read the story 'Pumpkin Soup'. To enhance our learning we made pumpkin soup. We chopped seasonal vegetables, mixed them together and cooked them. We had great fun tasting the soup-some of us loved it but others weren't so keen!


In Term 2 we learnt about the Christmas story and began learning songs and actions for our Christmas production. We made a variety of Christmas crafts, including cards and decorations. We were very excited when Father Christmas surprised us with a visit. What a great end to the term!

Ashenbank Woods


The Reception Classes have been visiting Ashenbank Woods near Cobham. They were full of enthusiasm for their first trip away from school! They had a great time in the woods, using their senses to explore their new surroundings. Two of the classes were lucky enough to see the cows grazing nearby. They noticed the signs of winter- the bare branches on the trees and the leaves across the ground. They had the opportunity to climb and balance on large fallen tree trunks, learning to manage risks and gain confidence in their own abilities. They especially enjoyed having fun in the mud, hearing squelching sounds and noticing patterns their wellies had made. What a fantastic learning opportunity!

We hope you enjoy watching the videos.
