Foundation 1 staff
Mrs Poston - Class Teacher
Ms Johnson 
Mrs Ellis - Friday 

At Dawpool your child will have their designated class team. However, our Foundation Stage staff work closely as a team, working flexibly between Foundation 1 and Foundation 2. This ensures all staff know all children well and the children gain confidence communicating with a small group of familiar adults.

The Foundation Team are Mrs Poston, Mrs Heron, Mrs Hood, Ms Johnson, Mrs Vickers and Mrs Ellis. If you have any questions, worries or concerns, please do speak to any of the Foundation Staff who are ready and able to help you.

Welcome to our Foundation 1 page. 
A member of F1 staff will be available on the door every morning and every evening. If you have any worries, concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to come and have a chat. If we can't resolve the issue immediately we can arrange a more detailed meeting at a mutually convenient time. 
We aim to share learning opportunities with you during the week, via Tapestry. If you have any issues accessing your account, then please do let us know. 
If you have any queries at any other times, then please contact Mrs Poston via email on or phone 0151 648 3412.

During our time in Foundation 1, we will undertake activities linked to all areas of the Early Years Curriculum;

Prime Areas; Communication and Language; Personal, Social and Emotional Development;

Physical Development.

 Specific Areas; Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


Sessions will also include RE, HeartSmart and Forest Schools.


Activities will be linked to our class topic which is ‘This is Me'. We aim to use children’s films and books as a hook for learning to help us find out more about ourselves and the world around us. Throughout the year we will select films based on the interests of the children and that enable us to cover all requirements of the Early Years Curriculum.

We will talk about where the film is set and find out where this country is on a map. We will then the theme of the film as a way of guiding our planning.



The very nature of the EYFS curriculum enables us to go with the interests of the children. The activities we plan are for a guide only.

We may complete planned activities, adapt planned activities or remove activities from the planning and replace with something more suitable. It is all dependent on how and where the children’s interests take us.

Activities are designed to cover several weeks, if needed.
