Welcome to Foundation


At Abbey we know that children in the Foundation Stage learn through play. The children in our Nursery and Reception Classes are provided with an exciting range of opportunities to explore, investigate and learn each and every day.




Please keep an eye out for updates about what the children have been learning about during their time in Reception smiley



As part of our Celebration of Light topic the children have been learning all about Bonfire night and the festival of Diwali.

We have had lots of fun creating our own firework pictures using a range of materials and we used clay to create our own diva lamps.

Take a look at some of our creations. 

The children have settled into Reception really well. We have enjoyed sharing lots of information about ourselves and what we like to do at school and at home.

November 2019


The children have enjoyed learning all about different things linked to Science. 

We have taken part in lots of different activities including investigating floating and sinking, experimenting with different substances to create a chemical reaction, and predicting what would happen at different stages of our experiment. 

We also investigated what items were magnetic and those that were not magnetic. 


The children have also had access to magnifying glasses and have enjoyed looking closely at familiar and unfamiliar objects eg. lemons, kiwis, mini beasts.

The children have been amazing learning all of the songs and actions for our Christmas play. They all enjoyed sharing their performances with their friends, family and the rest of the school. 


We definitely have some future West End stars in the making!

We really enjoyed celebrating Christingle with our friends and family. We found out lots about advent and what the different parts of the Christingle represent. Lots of our mums and dads came into school to help us make a Christingle. We had lots of fun!

Thank you to all of those parents that came to help.
