Welcome to Foundation Stage!
A big welcome to all our new children as they start on their journey through St George's Academy!
We are really looking forward to getting to know them over the next few weeks and have already got various parent events planned to help ease the transition from Nursery into Foundation Stage 2.
We hope that you are able to join us on Wednesday 26th September at the 'Meet and Greet' evening. It starts at 6pm and will give you the opportunity to meet the Senior Leadership Team as well as talk to your child's teacher.
We will also be holding a phonics and maths workshop during the Autumn term for parents to attend. During these sessions you will have opportunity to watch a practical lesson take place with the children and spend time meeting with the subject co-ordinators. More information will follow soon.
We are very lucky to have 6 members of staff who work in the FS2 unit over the week. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning please feel free to talk to any member, who will try their best to help you. We are usually available each morning from 8:30am-8:45am and after school from 3:10pm-3:30pm. If we cannot help you immediately we will book an appointment for a later date which is convenient for us both.

We live in a digital age and children can gain a lot of knowledge and understanding from good quality educational games and websites.
We have made a list below of a few that we find useful in school, which may aid your child's learning at home. Please let us know if you have any further suggestions and we will add them to the list.
We hope you and your families had a lovely Christmas and New Year?
We have enjoyed listening to the children tell us about all of the wonderful gifts they received from Santa, over the past couple of days.
Please find the new curriculum letter below. It details the learning which will take place over the next term.
As always, if you have got any questions or concerns with your child's learning, please do not hesitate to grab us in the morning or the end of the day.
Ash Wednesday Liturgy
Today we began our journey through Lent by taking part in the Ash Wednesday Liturgy. We said sorry to God for the things which we have done wrong recently and had ashes put onto our foreheads to remind us to be more like Jesus. We have each made a Lent promise which we are going to try and complete over the next 40 days.
We have had lots of fun today taking part in the National Book Day. All children came dressed as their favourite book characters and took part in a number of book related activities.
We are pleased to announce that Leila-Rose won 1 of the fancy dress prizes and Ellie-Mae won a book voucher for designing a new front cover for her favourite book. Well done girls!
Class 2's Assembly
It is Class 2's first whole school collective worship on Thursday 28th March. All parents are welcome to attend and then spend the morning in class. Please drop your child off as normal and then make your way round to the hall.
Class 1's Assembly
It is class 1's turn to lead the whole school collective worship this week (Thursday 4th April). We would love for you to come and watch it and stay for the morning.
