Welcome to the Foundation Stage
The staff in the Foundation Stage are Miss Brookes (EYFS Lead and Teacher), Mrs Taylor (HLTA) and Mrs Rowe (Senior EYP).
Each child in the Foundation Stage has a key worker group. Your child will either be a Gruffalo in Miss Brookes' key group, a Zog in Mrs Rowe's key group or a Stick-Man in Mrs Taylor's key group. We use these key groups to develop our communication and language, through conversation and turn taking games.
Our PE session is on a Wednesday; we do ask that the children come to school in their PE kit for this session.

Welcome to St Augustine's
Hear from some of the Early Years children who wanted to tell you all about the things you can look forward to at St Augustine's.
The day runs from 8:40am until 3:00pm. Each morning Key Workers hear individual readers so please ensure reading books are in each day. Fruit and milk is provided free of charge throughout they day. The children have hot lunches, for a small fee, which they share in the classroom environment with their teachers to encourage table manners and communication skills.
A member of the Early Years team is always available in the morning or afternoon at the classroom door to pass on any messages. Appointments can also be made at the school office.
Our Topics are selected by the children. They share their interests and what they would like to learn, they then decide on a focus and what activities they might like to take part in. This is completed every week; topics may stretch if the children show an increased interest. Have a look at 'Our Learning Journey' to see what we have been learning.
Why not ask your child what we have been learning this week? What they would they like to learn next week? So far the children have enjoyed themes such as 'aliens' 'mermaids and 'dinosaurs'!
