Tiger Cubs, Foundation Stage 1

Hello Tiger Cubs!!!


Your teachers are Mrs Burgin and Miss Highton.

Our next topic is called…


‘Can we explore it ?’


We can’t go over it. We can’t go under it. We’ve got to go through it! Can we explore it? Where can we hide?

It’s time to discover and explore holes, hiding spaces and great adventures in faraway places. This next topic, we’ll explore the exciting features of a local place of interest, taking in the sights and smells and collecting interesting items along the way. We’ll find out about what to say and do if we get lost, share photos of places we’ve already explored and practise a spot of map reading.

We’ll explore a range of hideaways, play Hide-and-Seek, dig holes and tunnels and guess what’s inside mysterious boxes. Then, we’ll go on a bear hunt, working together to navigate a series of obstacles and draw a map. At the end of the project we’ll talk about our favourite places, sing songs about exploring and toast some marshmallows around a campfire.


As Foundation Stage 1 we will be singing lots of songs daily, especially nursery rhymes as this helps with our speech, sounds and awareness of rhyme and rhythm.


We will explore early counting with simple number songs and games.


We will enjoy all kinds of stories linked to our topic or simply ones that we like.


But most of all we will learn to play and learn together, build good friendships, begin to understand what makes us and others happy or sad, and work together to create a safe, happy and nurturing environment for us all.


Don’t forget to look out for photos we put on your child’s Dojo and please share experiences from home on there too.  We love learning about the things the children enjoy out of school.
