Spring Term 2019
During the Spring Term we will be starting our Dinosaur topic. We will be reading 'Tom And The Island Of Dinosaurs' by Ian Beck. We will be following instructions to find dinosaur eggs around Drake Primary Academy. We will also be making maps of our journey. Later in the topic we will be turning ourselves into dinosaurs and we will be finding out facts about our favourite dinosaurs.  
 In Maths we will be measuring dinosaur foot prints, ordering numbers and making patterns. 
 

 Welcome To The Foundation Class Page

Please use this page to learn about our learning environment, our current topic and check out the latest ways that you can support your child at home.

 Supporting Learning At Home

Please read with your child for 5 minutes at least 3 times a week.  
 Learn the words on the word sheets in your child's book bag and let us know when they have completed each sheet.
 Complete the home learning tasks every week and record notes on Tapestry. 
 
 Information For Parents
 Please can I remind you that your children's clothing needs to be named, including coats. This makes life so much easier for your children and the adults!
 Check your child's book bag EVERY DAY for letters, reminders, trip slips, first aid notes and invitations.

We are just starting Phase 3 Letter & Sounds to teach Phonics. We introduce a new sound everyday using the Jolly Phonic Songs. Together we orally blend and segment words using the new sounds. Later we use our blending skills to read words and have a go at reading captions and sentences together. When we are more confident using the sound in our reading we will have a go at writing labels, sentences and captions.
