Foundation: Turtles & Dolphins

Welcome to Foundation!


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

Planning and making decisions when programming the Bee-bots

Observational drawing and creating beautiful watercolour paintings


Representing our experiences in play and acting out experiences with others


Showing curiosity and using senses to explore the world around us


Finding ways to solve problems, making links and noticing patterns


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!
