Our last week before we break up for the summer holidays. Well done to the boys and girls who have done some of our homework tasks.

Any children in F1 or F2 who have not yet accessed your Tapestry account please check your email (including your junk mail) for a link this week. We are hoping to get all of you set up this week, including those of you moving into Year 1.


Foundation Stage 1

This week F1 children can recap on the numbers 1-5 and the phonemes t, d, s, a and m. If you are starting F2 in September your new teacher will be so pleased if you know these numbers and letters.

Please feel free to have a go at some of the activities in this transition document too.

Foundation Stage 2

Hi everyone
We can’t believe how quickly the end of term has come around. What a strange few months is has been for everyone. All of the teachers are so proud of your hard work and everything you have done. Here is one last activity for you to do over the next week. It will help your new teacher get to know you a little bit.

For my new teacher…

We’ll miss you in Foundation Stage, but you’ll have a great time in Year 1. Good luck everyone and have a fabulous summer holiday.

Challenge Ideas



This week we will be exploring odd and even number.  A good place to start with your child is by sorting out socks; if they are matching pair they make an even number (2, 4, 6, etc), if there is one left over it is an ‘odd sock’ therefore it is an odd number (1, 3, 5, etc).  Enjoy!

Include things like, they are greedy, they make a squawking noise, they live by the sea, etc.

The children will be exploring the concept of ‘sharing’.  In Maths it is important that the children understand that when undertaking this task groups should always be ‘equal‘.  I’m sure that you can come up with some funny problems to solve.  Have fun helping your child explore this concept.

Here are a few phonics activities for the week.

Butterfly Life cycle

Some of you have already had a go at making a butterfly life cycle diagram. But just in case you didn’t get chance, here is work sheet to help. You can watch Maddie explain how it works on iPlayer on the link below.


Butterfly Life cycle

A butterfly has a very exciting life cycle, but it’s interesting to find out how other animals start their lives. Use this sheet to help you learn what we call baby farm animals. You could add to it by thinking of other animals and finding out what we call their babies… also do they come from eggs, or out of their mummy’s tummy?
