'Turtles' Foundation

Welcome to Turtles!



The Reception teachers produce an information sheet to let parents know what the children will be learning about each week, click below to see this weeks sheet.


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


The Turtles and Dolphins made Gruffalo Crumble in class! We worked as a team, following a recipe, weighing out the ingredients and mixing them all together before putting our crumbles in the oven to cook. The crumbles tasted yummy!


Foundation children loved playing on the hall apparatus in PE! They swung from ropes, jumped off heights and moved in lots of different ways.


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!
