Happiness Through Learning

Hello from Mrs MacQuarrie, Miss Tym all the children in the Foundation Stage!

A huge, warm welcome to our class page!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our work and read all about our learning.

Trip to Saltholme – Friday 15th June

As part of our ‘Mini-beast’ topic, the Foundation Stage went on a trip to Saltholme. We had so much fun! We went mini-beast hunting and pond dipping and we played games in-between. We used ‘tickle sticks’ to catch the bugs and we even found a newt! The pond dipping was brilliant – and we all managed to stay out of the pond! The weather stayed dry and we had a great day.┬áThank you to everyone who helped to organise the trip and the adults that came to help us on the day. As always, the highlights of the day were the packed lunches and the visit to the play park!

Meet our new friends!

In keeping with our topic, we have gained some tadpoles in the Foundation Unit. The children are really enjoying observing them and watching them change.

Easter Bonnets and Egg Hunts


The children had a lot of fun making, wearing and posing in their Easter bonnets before sharing them with the school in our Easter Assembly.

The Foundation Stage Staff then had a fantastic time on their Easter egg hunt. Rumour has it that there may even be a few eggs left over – better find them before they melt!
