Children in Foundation 2 learn through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. These include whole class (carpet time) and group activities as well as challenges that have been set for children to complete independently. The indoor 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. Throughout the day there are times when children have access to outdoor learning and the activities in our F1 classroom such as play dough and sand.

Reading Books

Children read with a member of staff or with our reading volunteer at least once every week. We change children’s reading books once a week or when they can read the book independently (which includes telling the story from memory at this stage in the year). Children need to bring their reading book and diary with them every day as we read throughout the week. It is important that children re-read books as this helps to develop fluency.
