Foundation 2

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

 

PE is on Friday mornings this term.

I have attached some useful links below to help you to use the phonics that we use at school with your children when teaching the to read so that you can too!

Please send your children into school with their reading book as much as possible (every day) and listen to them read at least 3 times per week.

Under The Sea

Half Term Holiday Homework

On the first Friday after the holidays we will be having a drive in cinema experience at school.  We will be watching a film linked to our new Under The Sea them.

The children need to bring in a boat that they have made into a box.  They will watch the film from inside their boat.

What a half term –

  • We have introduced Bear words,
  • Gained two rabbits into our EYFS
  • planted our own lawn
  • reorganised our reading schemes
  • been on a trip to Manor Farm

and SO MUCH MORE.

I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching F2 this half term and look forward to more exciting developments next half term.

WELCOME BACK

The children have come back to school after the half term holidays with a spring in their step.

It has been great to hear about the different things that the children have been doing over their holidays.

We have got straight into our animals and plants topic this week and started to learn all about how to look after animals (in readiness for the arrival of our 2 new school rabbits next week)

The children have been playing in the vets surgery, helping injured animals to get better as well as buying and selling things from our new pet shop area outside.

What a busy Couple of weeks it has been!

I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know all of the wonderful children in F2 and look forward to working with them for the rest of the year.

If you have any Concerns please feel free to come and see me.

Thanks

Mr Bevan

 

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.

We change children’s reading books once a week. Children need to bring their reading book and diary with them every day.
