Foundation Stage 1

Welcome to our Foundation Stage 1 Page!

We can’t wait for you to start your exciting journey, full of magical opportunities, with us at Monkwood Primary School. We cherish all learning at school and we love to learn through our beautiful indoor and outdoor provision and hands on experiences with our teachers and friends. We create memories that last a lifetime!

Meet your Teachers

I am a Mummy to two amazing children Alex who is 8 and Ben who is 15. I have a dog called Blue who I love to take on long walks in the gorgeous countryside. In my spare time, I like to read lots of books, and I know we’ll have a lovely time reading stories together. At school, I love to plant things and watch them grow in the outside area. I can’t wait for us to be gardeners together!

I have worked at Monkwood Primary school for over 20 years. During my time here, I have had 2 children of my own, who have also attended Monkwood. I am so proud that I gave my children the best start in life with us at Monkwood. I work full time in Foundation 1 and have done for the last 15 years. I work with an amazing team and find it so rewarding spending my days with our lovely children.

Hi, I am Miss Hall and I will be your teaching assistant this year! Lots of you will already know me from FS1 and FS2, so I am really excited to be joining you all on your new adventure in Year 1!
One of my most favourite things to do is walking my dog Minnie on the beach! I also love everything Disney, especially singing all of the songs. I look forward to seeing you all again in September!
