Foundation Stage - Mr Milburn, Mrs Riddell & Mrs Villiger

Wriggle, Rhymes and Roar!

Thank you to all the parents who attended our Astronaut Training Day,

As we end our ‘Mission to Mars’ topic in a galaxy far, far away,

Our new topic: Wriggle, Rhymes and Roar! will start after half-term,

Where we will work as teamwork ants to build a slide and swing for Superworm!

We will retell the story of Room on the Broom using Makaton,

Learning the signs for the key characters with the help of Miss Dennison,

We will order the witch’s magic potions using bottles of different sizes,

We will have outdoor broomstick races and win Halloween themed prizes!

Our weekly Foundation Friday sessions will see us read Zog with pre-school,

A rhyming story about a young accident-prone Dragon who starts school,

We will have to measure all the clothes of The Smartest Giant in Town,

And order them by length including George’s trousers, belt and gown,

I wonder which of George’s clothes will make the best sail for a boat?

Could it be the scarf for a cold giraffe or even his shirt for a goat?

Writing postcards from Stickman addressed to the family tree,

And training for the Superworm Olympics and Gruffalo Games in PE,

A Gruffalo themed picnic served with roasted fox and scrambled snake,

With freezing owl ice cream for desert and Gruffalo crumble ready to bake,

Searching for the lost buns and biscuits stolen by The Highway Rat,

Acting out the story armed with a sword, mask and black tricorn hat!

Please remember your talking tins on Mondays and reading books every day,

As we learn about the birth of Jesus in the run up to the Christmas play,

We are fast approaching the end of our very first autumn term,

With our wriggly nativity… Hip, hip, hooray for Superworm!
