Meet your Teachers

Hello, I am Miss Donnelly and I am a Foundation Stage teacher.

I love to read and do creative things and I get to do both of these things in Foundation Stage. We have so much fun! I have a little boy who is 2 years old and we love to read stories together and go for days out. We especially enjoy going to the seaside to build sandcastles and paddle in the sea. I can’t wait to meet you all so that we can have some fun together.

Hi! I’m Mrs Hartley. I teach in Foundation and absolutely love it.

We get to play, laugh and have fun every day. I have two little girls at home who are 4 and 1 year old so when I’m not at school I carry on playing and go on lots of adventures with my girls.

My favourite place to be is outside, you will often find me in my wellies ready for any weather! I also love sketching and reading. I can’t wait for you to join us in September. Let’s have a magical time together.

Our New Learning

This term is all about Summer fun and we shall focus on Under the Sea and the Seaside. We have some beautiful stories to inspire us this term, Snail and the Whale, Barry the Fish with Finger, Somebody Swallowed Stanley, and Rainbow Fish.

We shall also be preparing our older children for moving up to FS2. This term will be an emotional one as the whole year has gone so fast but we know for certain we are going to make beautiful memories.

Class Information

Every Friday you will be given a reading book – how exciting is that? – please return it every Tuesday.
Don’t forget to bring your water bottle every day and a bag with a change of clothes especially a sun hat.
Above all, remember to have fun!
