'Turtles' Foundation

Welcome to Turtles!


The areas of learning the Turtles (and Dolphins) aim to cover during their reception year can be seen below.


Pennywell Farm Trip

Foundation Dolphins and Turtles had a wonderful time at  Pennywell farm. We learnt lots about where our food comes from and how animals are cared for. 

We are producing an information sheet to let parents know what the Reception children will be learning about each week, click below to see this weeks sheet.
Holding a pencil and using it with good control is very tricky! As it is a big focus for us this year we thought it would be useful to give you a link with useful tips for helping your child hold your pencil correctly. There are also lots of other videos on line if you want to get even more tips. Just google “how to hold a pencil”. Happy practising!
