Welcome to Swallowfield Foundation

Garden FoundationOur ‘Foundation’ classes are for our children who are in their Reception year, from when they start school until they enter Year 1 in the September after they are 5.
The early years of a child’s life are an important stage when the foundations for future development are established. At school, in the foundation stage, we foster the child’s own interests and offer activities that extend, enrich and develop potential. Activities and first hand experiences are the key to learning and lay the foundations for their further education.

Young children learn as they play. Attitudes, skills and knowledge are acquired as the child strives to understand his world.

Foundation Magical Monday – Recycling Crayons

Monday, September 25, 2017

Today we have had a very exciting afternoon in Foundation with us creating our very own rainbow crayons out of some old wax crayons.

The children helped to break up the crayons into small pieces before putting them in the special trays. They then went into the oven and magically melted. Then they moved into the freezer and became a solid again.

Take a look at our photos:

Foundation’s Messy Visitor

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

We have been very lucky today to have a visit from the cheeky white rabbit from our story this week called ‘White Rabbits Colour Book’ by Alan Baker. See whether the children can let you know what happens to the rabbit in the book – she is a little bit naughty! The children were great at being very kind and gentle to her and she really enjoyed her visit.
