In Foundation we celebrated Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of light. We talked about how Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah and the children looked at Jewish artefacts and played dreidel.
16.11.18 - Children In Need Day
Today was Children In Need day - As a school we helped to raise over £1500.00
13.11.18 - Diwali
Today we celebrated Diwali. Mrs Basra, who lives in our community, came to school to teach the children how Hindu people celebrate the festival of Diwali. We did lots of exciting things throughout the day.
9.11.18 - Remembrance Day
Our children stood in silence to remember the fallen soldiers. Many of the children wore a poppy as a mark of respect.
5.11.18 - Bonfire Night
The children learnt about keeping safe on Bonfire Night.
In Foundation the children have been learning about 'The Little Red Hen' story. They have also completed lots of activities linked to the book.
The children made 3 types of bread (white, brown and tomato) and then tasted each loaf - deciding which bread was their favourite was quite tricky!
After listening to the story, the children also went outside to perform role-play, acting out the story using masks and other props.
We also had a special Harvest assembly in school and the final display was very impressive - the food was donated to several local charities.
Welcome to Foundation
