Welcome to Amber Class!
Welcome to the Amber Class page! Amber is Nursery and it is also known as Foundation Stage One (FS1). We are lucky to have two teachers in Amber Class: Miss Thomas and Mrs Shaw!
Here at Dunsville, we work closely with Aquamarine class (Reception) during child-initiated time, within our Foundation Unit. We have lots of staff in our foundation unit, who help to support and challenge us as we learn through play!
In our Foundation Stage Unit you will see: Miss Wicks, Miss Frost, Miss Emery, Miss Atterbury, Mrs Credland and Mrs Stewart everyday!
Every day we are busy exploring and investigating the different areas in our classroom both inside and outside. We are outdoors in all weathers and we love to explore and create our own new environments to play in!
Here are some photographs of us having fun in our provision:
We have been learning all about US!
We have been learning all about us this term. We have been learning eachother's names and exploring where we like playing the best!
We have been singing nursery rhymes, such as 'head, shoulders, knees and toes' as we have been learning the names of our different body parts! We enjoyed drawing around eachother and mark-making to describe the different body parts such as arms, legs, head and skull!
We moved on to look at pictures of us as babies and discussed how we have changed!
We have enjoyed exploring the people in our community, the jobs people have and acting out in our role play!
We enjoyed drawing our own maps of our school and exploring our school by going on walks around the grounds.
In Phonics, we have been practising our Phase One skills that help us listen to sounds in the environment! We have enjoyed exploring loud and quiet sounds through singing and using musical instruments! We have explored animal noises and have enjoyed playing, 'guess that sound!'
In Maths, we have been singing nursery rhymes that count forwards and backwards! We have been exploring mathematical vocabulary in our play!
Seesaw – Homework is uploaded on to seesaw each term. Please send any 'wow' moments that make you extra proud of your child so that we can celebrate them together!
If you have any questions please ask to speak to one the foundation stage team,
