Foundation Stage Newsletter


1st March 2019



This week we have been:

- Learning about separating a set of objects in different ways

- Writing number sentences e.g. 4+2=6 2+4=6 5+1=6 1+5=6

- Writing our holiday news

- Using our sounds to make simple words and beginning to write them

- Writing the letter sounds we have learnt

- We are trying really hard to blend our sounds to read words e.g. c-a-t

- Practising our handwriting to make it as neat as we can.

- Having a try at writing simple sentences.


What can you find in your house to help practise subtraction e.g. socks, teddies, forks, pencils etc. Line up your object, now take 1 away, how many do you have left. 7 forks take away 1 is 6.

Practise tricky words and sounds just to check you still know them.



Can we please remind you to be aware of hair accessories that your child may wear to school. Coloured hair pieces and large bows etc. are not part of school uniform.

Thank you.
