Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Welcome to the Foundation Stage Webpage!
Mrs Clay, Mrs Hill, Mrs Gibson, Mrs Brown, Mrs Snape and Mrs Lewis want to welcome you to our web page. Here we will be posting notices, photos and dates as well as giving you an insight into all the fun things we get up to in Foundation Stage!
We are very much looking forward to getting to know your children over the next few weeks. Our main priority during these two weeks are to make sure that the children feel happy and settled in our Foundation Stage, find out all of the amazing things that your children can already do, learn our classroom rules, learn our School Golden Rules, and of course make lots of lovely new friends!
We encourage routine in our Foundation Stage so please encourage your child to take off their own coat and hang it up, put away their own water bottle and bookbag and choose their own dinner. We want to nurture independence in our classroom!
If you have any questions or worries about your child during these weeks then please don't hesitate to come and chat to us either before 9am or at the end of the day when we have released the children.
Thank you for your support!
Please make sure that your child brings the following to school

During your child’s first half term at school we will teach the children our Sherrier Golden Rules as well as creating classroom rules. These Golden Rules are carried throughout the whole school. We encourage children to think about their behaviour and to make the right choices in school.
To encourage this we have created our ‘Wonka’s Golden Ticket’ chart. Your child will move up the chart one step at a time, each time a piece of positive behaviour is witnessed. When your child reaches the top (all the way up to number 10) they will be rewarded with a Golden Ticket! This means that they can bring in one toy to play with in school on a Friday afternoon. The date your child can bring in a toy to play with will be recorded on the ticket.
Please make sure that your child only brings one toy into school and that it can fit easily into their My Space. Unfortunately children are not allowed to bring in expensive or electronic toys.
If your child breaks one of our school rules they will ‘crash’ off the race and as a consequence they will be given a 5 minute time out. We ensure that children SAY sorry and SHOW sorry. All children will return to their position on the race after a piece of positive behaviour has been witnessed.
The children will also be actively taught our ‘keys to success’ (organisation, confidence, persistence, resilience and getting along) which are skills that will allow children to flourish as lifelong learners!
