Mrs Harvey and Mrs Marley recommend...
"Owl Babies" 
Martin Waddell
This beautiful book tells the story of 3 baby owls who wake up one night to discover their mother has gone.  
It fits in perfectly with our topic of 'Light and Dark' and the children have enjoyed hearing it in class.
Here is a link to a YouTube reading of the story:
We have been busy!
Since coming back to school after half term, we have been very busy in Foundation Class!  We have learnt about why we celebrate Bonfire Night and made our own rockets, we have listened to the story of Rama and Sita and found out about the festival of Diwali, we have spent lots of time in the school ICT suite and improved our computer skills and we have had great fun learning about some of the messages behind 'BBC Children in Need'.
The children have been most excited about taking home reading books and being able to show off their phonics knowledge and blending skills at home.
During the rest of this half term, we will be learning about 'Night & Day' and thinking about nocturnal animals.  Our book recommendations will reflect this topic for the next couple of weeks.
Then of course, we move into the excitement of Christmas and we look forward to doing lots of activities to learn about and enjoy this busy time of year.
Please have a look at our photos below to see what we have been doing recently.
Welcome to Foundation Class 2020-2021
We have all started to settle really quickly into life at Kea School and have had so many new experiences in our first week!
We are already getting better at playing together and sharing and we are enjoying playing with new friends.
We have spent lots of time this week exploring different parts of the school grounds and we especially enjoyed playing on the pirate ship, climbing on the adventure playground, going on a nature hunt on the field and playing on our bikes and trikes on the play court.
Please have a look at the photos below to see a selection of the things we have been doing.
Please ensure that any snacks on Monday to Thursday are healthy (in line with school policy) and that water bottles only contain water.
Most children already have PE shoes and welly boots in school, thank you.  We will be doing a range of physical activities most days and we will start to practise changing our footwear over the next couple of weeks.  If you haven't already sent these into school, please may you do so as soon as possible.



Welcome to our Foundation class, 2019!


We have all settled into Kea School life really well and already our children have had so many exciting and new experiences. 

We have learnt all about ourselves and our friends, the Oceans, found apples in our orchard to make apple crumbles, painted our portraits and started to learn lots of sounds in Read Write Inc. 

We are becoming more independent, trying to do things for ourselves, such as changing our reading books in the morning, zipping up our coats, unpacking and packing our own bags. We are making lots of new friends and finding out about each other through our learning, play and circle time. 

Here are some photos to show what we have got up to so far…
