Foundation

Welcome to Lilliput

Our foundation teachers are Mrs Loaring and Mr Beasley

 

Our teaching assistants are: Mrs Luton Mrs Easterbrook and Mrs Fisher

 

In Foundation we operate as a free-flow unit, where the teachers and teaching assistants work across the unit with focus children, either individually or in small groups, in order to teach core learning skills and develop their personal and social education. When not working with an adult, the children are engaged in child initiated play, supported by adults, throughout the areas of learning, and have free access to all indoor and outdoor areas in the unit.

Routines

Reading: Children should read at home at least three times a week. Please write a comment and sign it so we know that they have read. We check reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and change books when needed. Please bring reading books and reading records to school every day.

 

In addition to our  ‘Wake and Shake’ sessions, we also have an indoor/outdoor PE session on a Monday. PE kits are kept in school, and sent home half-termly for washing. Please ensure everything is clearly named. It would be helpful if your child could practise dressing/undressing themselves at home, in order to help their confidence and independence when getting changed for P.E.

Homework: Homework is sent home on a Wednesday. This needs to be completed and handed in by the following Monday. Homework will usually be a short task related to our work in class.

 

 

Contacting your child’s teacher: There is always someone available at the start or the end of the day for a brief chat. We are always happy to arrange a time to talk if more time is needed.
