This half term our theme is based around the last 4 countries that hosted the Olympics. For the next two weeks we are focusing on Brazil (Rio 2016) and our story is ‘Where the Night Came From’ (a traditional tale from Brazil). The link below will take you to the story being read online:

Children in Foundation 1 learn through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. These include some whole class (carpet time) and group activities as well as activities that have been set up for children to complete independently. The indoor learning environment is arranged in zones that include a mark-making area, a workshop and a Maths area. However, children can move resources from one area to another in order to complete activities. Throughout the day there are times when children have access to outdoor learning such as water play, den-building and building with large construction equipment.
