Foundation 1 - Darwin Class

Welcome to Darwin class.

Our Teacher in FS1 Darwin class is Miss Bates. Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Harper and Miss Virdi.

It is always a pleasure to welcome children and parents at the door in the mornings and at the end of each sessions where we can answer any queries or questions about your child. 


On Thursdays is our 'Stay and read' day. Please stay and read with your child and then join in with our phonics session afterwards! For all the parents who stay, your child will be entered into a raffle that day to win a book to take home. We hope you see you there! 


Spring 1

This term we are looking at Winter. We are looking at the changes in the weather, we are noticing lots of frost on the ground and we are having to wear our scarves and gloves! Our 3 focus books this term are 'Lost and found', 'Stick Man' and 'One Snowy Night'.


We have been looking at the Antarctica and moving our bodies like penguins!


We also celebrated Chinese New Year by pretending to move like a tiger, we also had our very own Chinese in class, it was very yummy!!


We have been story mapping our brand new story 'Stick Man' and we are building up our vocabulary to retell the story. We have had the opportunity to make our very own stick man, some of them had lots of eyes! We have been practising our Makaton signs for the story, we really enjoy learning these actions, why don't you ask me at home which signs I know.
