The Early Years provision is OUTSTANDING and children get off to a flying start!
Welcome to Foundation Stage
Our children are now entering the final term of the Foundation Stage of their education. This half term we will be learning about human and animal growth. We will be looking for signs of Spring and making lovely blossom pictures. Later in the half term we will be learning about animals and we will be going on an exciting visit to Baylham Rare Breeds Farm near Ipswich. An important aspect of this half term is preparing for the transition to Year 1. We will be joining the Key Stage 1 children for playtimes and starting to join in some lunchtime breaks with the rest of the school. As we prepare our children to move on, we also get ready for the new Reception Children who start school in September. It will be a busy and exciting term!
