Meet your teacher
Hello, my name is Mrs Thompson and I’m one of your Foundation Stage teachers. I’ve been teaching at Aston Hall for over a decade now, he time has flown by! I joined the Foundation Stage team in recent years and I really enjoy seeing how much the children develop in their first year of school.
When I’m not at school, I love to spend time with my family. I have two sons, Eddy & Miles, and a dog called Betsy. At the weekends, we often go for long walks in the local countryside. I also love to read and I ALWAYS have a book on the go. I’m also a very creative person, ’m a self-taught knitter, I like to sew and to create papercut art.

Areas of Learning
Autumn Term Learning Questions: ‘Who lives in the Woods?’ and ‘Can you take care of me?’ In the Autumn term we will cover autumnal changes, nocturnal animals and people who help us. At the end of this term, the children will also take part in a Nativity Performance.
Spring Term Learning Questions: ‘Can you read me a Story?’ and ‘Who is your Hero?’ During this term children will learn traditional tales/fairytales and children will explore what makes a super hero, not all heroes wear capes!
Summer Term Learning Questions: ‘Do Cows drink Milk?’ and ‘Who lives in the Sea?’ During the Summer term children will learn about farmyard animal life cycles and may see this with their own eyes when we have some special little visitors! Children will also learn all about the seaside and sea creatures and will enjoy a school trip to Cleethorpes.
During your time in Foundation, you will meet lots of new friends, learn new skills and grow in confidence!
The children will be spending the first weeks becoming familiar with the environment and building relationships with staff and children.
Staff will be working with children to get to know them and observing them in all areas of the setting as part of the baseline assessments.
At Aston Hall we all enjoy doing our learning together, both in the classroom and outdoors.
