Hello and welcome to Foundation Stage – The Observant Owls
In Foundation, we want all children to succeed and be happy and safe both inside and outside of the classroom. Learning starts as soon as children walk through the doors! We open up at 8.45am and parents and carers are welcomed and encouraged to stay and take part in a short morning task, including name writing, letter formation, reading, number challenges and craft activities.
Just before 9.00a.m, children are called to the carpet for the register and exciting activities begin!
