A very warm Welcome to Gleadless Primary School Foundation Stage 2.
We are a dedicated and committed team of staff who work in close partnership with parent/carers to ensure all children accessing our Early Years provision build the foundations of their Gleadless learning journey in a safe, happy and nurturing environment.
Through play-based learning and child led topics, we endeavour to provide each child with a range of opportunities, which stimulate their creativity and support their development based on their likes and interests.
Together with parents/carers, we can engage each child in Early Years provision and support them to develop and progress through a variety of carefully planned and exciting learning opportunities that will support them throughout their time at Gleadless.
This term the Foundation Stage team has welcomed many new children and their families to our school.
Our theme for the first half term is `All About Me’ –our learning centres around ourselves and settling into all the exciting new challenges that starting school brings. We will be making new friends, thinking about what we can already do, as well as learning to have a go at trying many new things.
Our theme for the second half term will be ‘In to the woods’. We will be exploring stories such as ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’, ‘Owl babies’ and ‘The Gruffalo’. We will be thinking about the changes we can see happening in the environment as well as learning about woodland creatures and their habitats.
During our maths lesson today we learnt about the number 5. Tom was our mini teacher and wrote the number sentences all by himself. The class helped by telling Tom the answers and by subitising.
