Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to those children new to Foundation 1 at Cotgrave Candleby Lane School and those existing pupils. We are really excited to be working in partnership with you and your children and supporting your child to grow and learn.


We have a busy term planned and will enjoy exploring the topics ‘Wacky weather,’ and ‘Once upon a time…’. Our inquiry questions this term are ‘How does the weather change through the year?’ and ‘Who lived happily ever after?’.


We look forward to exploring and discovering new learning and vocabulary this term. We are always keen to know your children’s interests, please keep us updated with any interests or hobbies you and your child/children enjoy.
