Welcome to the Foundation Stage Page!
Dear Parents and Carers,
Hello and welcome back to school. We hope you all had a lovely half term break and your children are refreshed and ready for lots of new learning this term! Our topic is ‘Transport’ and please see the please see our Curriculum page for more information about some of the work we will be covering. Our indoor role-play area has been transformed into a ‘garage’ and the children are really looking forward to learning in there. Our outdoor role-play area is a home. The role-play areas will provide numerous opportunities for learning and cover all areas of the curriculum.
P.E will still take place on a Monday morning. Please ensure that all items of your child’s school uniform and P.E kit are clearly labelled with their name. Also, within our physical development learning we will focus on what is needed to remain healthy – exercise, diet and hygiene.
We also have continuous learning opportunity in our workshop area in class which the children really enjoy. We now need some more junk for modelling so please could you send in some boxes, particularly small ones!
We will continue with weekly baking in class. Please could you send in a contribution of £2 if you have not already? This contribution is voluntary and covers from Christmas to Easter, but there is still some money outstanding.
To support your child’s routine and due to the large number of older children coming in through the door on the infant playground, please could all reception children come in through our EYFS gate every morning. Thank you.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to come and have a chat with myself or a member of the Foundation Stage team – our door is always open!

The children have enjoyed reading the book 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson . You can see they have made some super models!
People Who Help Us Day
The children have settled really well and have had great fun during their first term at Belmont. They have been learning, not only skills in Maths and English, but how to co-operate and work together. It was wonderful to see everyone dressed up for our 'People Who Help Us' day, where the children learnt about people in our community who help us, including those in the emergency services, and how to call 999 in an emergency. We also talked about people who keep us healthy, such as dentists and opticians. You can see a selection of photos below.
The children enjoyed taking part in Food Technology where they had the opportunity to taste different fruits and record whether they liked them. They then had a great time designing and making their own yummy fruit kebabs! Below you can find a fabulous example of how the children recorded their work.
Our Family - Talk For Writing
The children have completed some fabulous work on our topic of 'Our Family'. They have also been introduced to 'talk for writing' to learn the poem 'Our Family' by John Foster.
The children used a mirror to help them draw and paint some self-portraits.
Smartie The Penguin and Keeping Safe Online
A lot of our children in the Reception Class are already using technology such as iPads and it's never to early to learn how to keep safe. Lincolnshire e-safety officer Dan Hawbrook came to visit the class to show us a video about Smartie the penguin. He taught us a song to remind us to tell someone if we are worried.
