Welcome to the most magical place in school!
Foundation 2 is the home of the awesome Class 1 and Class 2. We don’t just learn here, we investigate, explore, create and discover. Everyday we have new adventures full of imagination and excitement…we travel to far off places, maybe even to where the wild things are or Peter Pan lives or to find what Goldilocks is up to now. Keep your eyes on this page to see all our adventures and our amazing learning achievements because in F2 we really make learning child's play!
We LOVE PE.
Down in F2 we love our PE sessions. As you may know the government are promoting physical education in primary schools and suggest the children have 2 sessions a week. In F2 we have one formal PE session in the hall on a Friday. In this session we get changed into our PE kits (in the first half term of the year we only took shoes and socks off to focus more on getting used to the routine and working in the hall) and take part in sessions that cover dance to ball games to apparatus. The other session is focussed on the fine motor and gross motor skills required within the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, this is through activities set up both inside and outside which we ensure the children access. When there are themed days on a Friday we still do PE but make it fit with the theme of the day e.g. we will focus on dance on Children in Need day as the school fundraiser is a dance-a-thon. Here are some pictures showing a range of activities that link into the EYFS physical development curriculum.
This term we will be learning about Autumn, light and CHRISTMAS!!! We will be exploring with so many exciting things this half term but we could do with your help. Over the half term holiday could you please collect leaves that have fallen from the trees, conkers, acorns and anything else that shows it’s Autumn and bring them to school. We can’t wait to show you all everything we get up to so keep an eye on our page. Also look out for any notes in your child's bag about the Christmas performance costumes. Have a great half term!
Wow, what an amazing way to end our very first half term at School. We learnt all about Spain! We looked at all sorts of things like the flag, food, music and we also learnt that Spanish people know how to party! We really enjoyed making fans (as its very warm in Spain) and creating our own necklaces using the Spanish flag colours. We made the class 1 and 2 team very proud by telling the rest of the school all about what we have learnt this week in the school assembly. We have had a great week, now to recharge our batteries ready for the next half term.
