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

My name is Miss Hutchinson and I am currently the class teacher in Foundation 1. I have many years of experience with children, working in different settings with a variety of age ranges. During my time at university, I specialised in Early Years Education and Special Educational Needs. I chose to become a nursery teacher as I believe the first year of education shapes a child’s future. In my spare time, I love to explore the countryside with my little cockapoo, Gus. I can’t wait to meet you all and start creating memories with you!

Class 1 Teacher

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.

I am an Early Years Practitioner in Foundation here at Monkwood Primary School. I have been working with the children of Monkwood since the age of 18. I have 3 children of my own so I understand how important it is to create a safe, loving and enjoyable environment for our little ones.
