The Richmond School

Welcome to the Foundation Stage!

Ourselves and Our Families

​This term, we will be trying hard to sit and listen carefully and remember to put our hand up during carpet time. 
We will be focusing on the following:
· Recognising 2D shapes and talking about their properties
· Counting and using numbers to 10
· Talking about ourselves and our families  
· Beginning to learn the days of the week and months of the year
· Becoming more independent and trying to do our jobs by ourselves
· Becoming more confident and accurate when using tools i.e. scissors
· Recognising our full name


​We aim to use the outdoor area as much as possible during the winter months and it would be useful if the children could bring in wellingtons to wear. Please could you ensure they are named. Thank you.

Dates to Remember

​Thursday 14th September 5:30 pm - meeting in the school hall

Letters and Sounds

Your child will bring home their reading folder on a Friday. Please ensure these are returned to school by the following Wednesday so that new work can be given.

Water Bottles

Please remember that your child is only allowed WATER in their school drinks bottle which they keep in the classroom. Please ensure it contains fresh water each morning.

PE Kits

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. If your child wears earrings please ensure they are removed on these days so that they can participate. Please note it is the school policy that only studs should be worn and no other jewellery is allowed. We also ask that long hair is tied back.

Library Books

Nursery Folders

​We visit the school library every week to listen to and use a story sack before choosing a library book to share with you. Please return it to school on Tuesday so that your child can make use of our well resourced library.
​We would like to see your child’s learning journal from nursery. Please hand them to the class teacher and we will return them as soon as we have looked through them.
