Foundation Stage 2020 - 2021

Mrs Holland

Welcome to Lakeside Foundation Unit

We have been very lucky to have a new Foundation Unit built which has allowed F1 and F2 children to integrate and learn together in the same space since February 2020.   Our aim is to give your child the best start to their education and we believe that the children collaborating and learning together gives all the children the opportunity to thrive and become the best version of themselves.

If you have anything you wish to discuss, please feel free to speak to any member of the Foundation Stage Team, our aim is to make your child's experience of school a happy one.

Settling In

All the staff in the Foundation Unit would like to say how proud we are of how calmly and happily the children have come to school.  It has been a strange transition process and the children have coped remakably well.  Now that the children are in full time we are completing our baseline assessments to see where each child is working at.  We will then begin our Read, Write, Inc programme and focussed maths inputs next week.  If you would like anymore information on Read, Write, Inc you will find this under the Parents tab on the main page of this website.


I know that we are going through a very strange time at the minute and it is strange that we are not at school together.  We want you to know that all the staff in the Foundation unit are thinking of you and want you to stay safe.  Paper packs of new home learning were available to collect for F2 children and most of the ones that weren't collected were delivered by the staff.  Myself and Miss Smith were lucky enough to see some of you when we delivered them! Others we had to post through the door.  I will continue to add work to the Home Learning section of the website each week too.  We are all looking forward to seeing you all again soon.  But for now, stay safe, have fun and enjoy this extra time with your families.



On the 22nd June we will be launching the VLE.  You should have all received login details for your child and the verification code for the school is 230257.  This is new to us all but hopefully you will agree that is a great resource.  This week I have added a reading task for F2 which involves watching a video to re-cap how we say the sounds, a reading activity linked to RWI using 'Fred Talk' and looking for 'Special Friends'.  I have then included a link to some of the RWI texts which I would like you to select and read.
