F1 - Fireflies


Mrs Hutchinson

Miss Kind

Hello and welcome,   Miss Kind and Mrs Hutchinson teach in Foundation 1. Miss Kind in the mornings, and Mrs Hutchinson in the afternoon.  We have loads of fun here in the Fireflies class, playing and learning together.

We are starting the new year with a topic all about stories, so we will be doing lots of reading and sharing our favourite books. Miss Kind’s  is ‘A piece of cake’ by Gill Murphy and Mrs Hutchinson’s is ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson. It’d be great to have different story tellers come in to read during this term, so please speak to someone if you are interested!

After half term, we will be learning about different jobs that people do, and how they do them. Again, this is an opportunity to learn about what our families do, so if anyone can come and talk for 5 minutes about what they do, it’d be fabulous!

In the Spring term, we will learn more about ourselves- what feelings we have and what we enjoy doing.

Next we’ll be learning all about different transport in ‘Planes, trains and automobiles’ where we will find out more about getting around.

In the Summer term, we will learn about mini beasts, where we will get up close and personal with things that creep and crawl!

Our final topic this year is ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!’ where we will look at all the fantastic things there are to do at the seaside…and we will bring the seaside to school!

We love our FS unit, and offer a warm welcome to anyone who has spare time that they would like to fill by coming in to read, play and enjoy spending time with our wonderful children.
