Years 3 + 4 Blog


Welcome to Foundation Stage! We work with children from three to five years and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We have a FS1 Base (Nursery) and a FS2 Base (Reception). The teachers in FS1 are Mrs Hotchkiss and Miss Hotchkiss who are supported by Curriculum Specialist Mrs Byrne and Teaching Assistants Mrs Stephens and Mrs Harrison. In FS2 the teachers are Mrs Bell and Mrs Hurst who are supported by Teaching Assistants Miss Shaw and Miss Crooks.

During children’s time in Foundation Stage they will cover three prime areas of learning through child led and adult led activities. The prime areas are: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. These prime areas are the most essential to a child’s healthy development and future learning.

They will also cover four specific areas which are: Literacy, Mathematical Development, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. We work closely together as a Foundation Stage team and with the rest of Angram Bank School. We take part in Achievement Day, termly Parents Evening, parent workshops and fundraising events. Children get on the Angram Bank bus in our Foundation Stage and continue on an exciting learning journey!

Stone Age
We have had a fantastic day travelling back in time to learn about the Stone Age. We have learnt some amazing facts that we can use in our history lessons back at school. First we created a human timeline to learn how far back in time the Stone Age was.



We learnt how they use to make their tools and weapons used for hunting. Stone Age people made their tools out of flint because it easily split into thin sharp pieces. We made our own spears which I am sure you will love to look at when they bring them home.





When we had made our spears, we went hunting. After following the footprints quietly we finally found a dear. We practised using bow and arrows to kill our lunch.



After hunting our lunch, we had to start a fire to cook the deer. Starting a fire in the Stone Age times was not an easy task to do.



It was getting late and we needed to build a shelter so we had somewhere to sleep. We used animal skin to dress up as Stone Age people and build a shelter to sleep.






We found out just how difficult it was to paint on the walls of the cave. We learnt that there is a lot of ochre in Sheffield and this is what they used to create the paint. We drew animals on paper and then turned off all the lights. We painted our animals by candle light. It took a lot of concentration. I hope you enjoyed looking at your child's cave art that they brought home.



Finally, we spent the end of the day learning how Stonehenge was built. The large stones had to be rolled along way. It took skill, strength and team work.

SEND Parenting Programmes

New support is available to parents and carers of children with SEND, through free parenting seminars and group programmes.  These provide people with tips and strategies, and are based on international research carried out over the past 30 years.

This includes three programmes for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), for younger children, 2-8 year olds and teenagers.  There are also new programmes led by parents themselves.

More than 70 people attended SEND parenting programmes last term, with 97% rating them as good or excellent.
