We love Outdoor Fridays! (24.9.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

At OLSJ we believe it is important to provide children with the opportunity to explore the natural world around them so all our year groups throughout school have Forest School lessons and time. In Foundation 1 we love to spend time together, talking about what we see and the treasures that we find in our beautiful school grounds. It was even better last week when we discovered some of the dens another year group had set up and left for us to enjoy! Here is a small collection of photos from our lovely Outdoor Fridays we've had during the month of September.


Wheels go round and round! (23.9.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

The children have enjoyed the story Mrs Armitage on Wheels this week and learnt that a wheel is the round part that helps something move. They loved being allowed to make round movements with felt tip pens after one of our learning times on the carpet and they have had a go at drawing a wheel from a bike. We've had plenty more painting and car washing too, as well as imaginary fun with all our transport.


Week 4 - What has wheels? (20.09.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

In F1 this week we will continue learning the word 'transport' and understanding what a 'wheel' is. We will be learning to draw a circle and how to join a wheel to a car or bicycle. 

Here is an overview of our week ahead: F1 Timetable - Autumn 1 Week 4.pdf

The Wheels on the Bus (16.9.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

We have been inspired by everything bus related this week, singing the Wheels on the Bus everyday while we painted a bus, played with a toy bus, sat in a role play bus and cleaned a bus. We've also enjoyed reading some fabulous bus related books, the children particularly enjoyed Bunnies on the Bus and the Lion on the Bus during their story times. We've learnt that a bus is transport, and that there is lots of transport. The children have all named different kinds of transport. We used this clip (muted) to help us Transport.


We're going on a PUDDLE hunt (14.09.21)

FS 1 (Foundation 1) on: F1 Class Blog

We're going on a puddle hunt, we're going to find a big one, what a beautiful day, we love the rain!

The day your child came home not as filthy was the day we finally tried out our waterproofs. The weather was cool and wet enough to put them on and the children loved it. We went on a puddle hunt and enjoyed splashing about in the ones we could find. Granted they were only small puddles, but it didn't matter. Plenty of talk and fun was had by all.


Below are the timetable and homework for this week.
