Foundation 2

Foundation 2 are our Reception children.  They are taught by Mrs Cullerne-Bown and teaching assisstants: Mrs Krishnakumar, Miss Johnson, Mrs Howard, Mrs Corkill,and Miss Tabreham.

 

 

Children in Foundation 2 learn through indoor and outdoor activities. The learning environment is arranged in zones that include a writing area, a workshop and a Maths area. However, children can move resources from one area to another in order to complete activities. For example, they can take pencil caddies to the mud kitchen to write menus. Throughout the day, children select their own resources and work independently on activities that they have chosen (child-initiated learning). Children also work with adults on pre-planned activities. During the day children have opportunities to work with children from the Foundation 1 class.
