Rosemellin has two Foundation classes, Fistral and Crantock. Each class has their own indoor space and we share the outside spaces.

Our outside spaces consist of: The Garden, The Wildlife Area, and The Sportacus Playground. We also visit and make use of the equipment in each of the Key Stage 2 playgrounds. On occasion, we also use the school field!

Approximately half of our day is spent outside. (Please remember Wellington boots and coats)!

Each class has a daily Phonics session; learning to read and write. We use a combination of 'Jolly Phonics' and 'Letters and Sounds'. There is also a daily Maths Focus and you can keep up to date with your child's Reading, Writing and Number Next Steps by checking their progress on Class Dojo. We would like to work together with you to help your child achieve these next steps and value your comments and information about how they are getting on at home.

In addition to literacy and maths equipment, the children have access to a wide variety of resources to enhance their independence and imaginative play.

In the Foundation Stage we are able to choose our theme on a weekly basis, depending on the interests of the children. However, we do of course make use of the seasons, weather, and seasonal events.
