Foundation 2

Welcome to Foundation 2


Welcome to class 1 and 2. We have a fantastic year in store with some fantastic topics including Dinosaurs, The Seaside and Animals . There will also be lots of opportunities to come and share learning with your child. We look forward to a fun and exciting year!


A creative week in F2

Week beginning 15/10/18


F2 have had a very creative week finishing off our emergency vehicles. Hopefully a fire engine, police car, air ambulance, police helicopter or ambulance has found its way home to you this week and you have had chance to talk to your child about it. We were so proud of the children's hard work on these over the last two weeks. They used an impressive range of skills including painting, cutting, sticking and gluing, and we are sure you will agree the results are fantastic!


Next week we are looking forward to our Superhero day on Wednesday when children may dress up as a superhero - feel free to be as creative as you like. We also can't wait to see their completed Superhero challenge cards - please could these be in by Friday 26th October. Many thanks.

Superheroes in the Community - Emergency Vehicles

Superheroes Everywhere!

Week Beginning 08/10/18


This week we have discovered that there are superheroes everywhere! The week got off to a great start with a visit from Terry and Emett the guide dog. The children listened really well and Terry commented on their outstanding behaviour and reflective questioning. We were very proud of them!


We have been thinking about other superheroes and have been making vehicles for them - look out for some super police cars, fire engines, air ambulance helicopters and ambulances heading home soon. Many thanks for sending in boxes to enable us to do this. We also thought about our family superheroes in our British values assembly on Wednesday.


When reading with your child this week, it would be great if you could encourage them to spot ck e u and r - this week's new sounds!

Goose Fair fun 

Week beginning 01/10/18


Class 1 and 2 had lots of fun at the fair this week on our Goose Fair afternoon. We investigated the haunted house, played lots of games, threw wet sponges at the teachers (photos!) and enjoyed tasty mushy peas and popcorn. With the profit we made we have already been able to buy some exciting new toys for our Foundation unit. Many thanks to parents and children for supporting this great event, and we hope you have fun if you are visiting the real thing this week!


We hope you are all enjoying the Superhero challenge - we have had some great feedback from the children who have been telling us about the challenges they have completed at home.

A super start to school in class 1 and 2

Week beginning 24/09/18


Welcome to the new Class 1 and 2 page! We will be using this page to keep you updated on all the exciting things that are happening in our classes this year. 


We've had a busy week practising our song (class 1) and poem (class 2) for our Harvest Festival on Monday. Please remember to bring in a tin on Monday if you would like to donate to our collection.


In Phonics we have now learnt the letters s a t p i n m d and the tricky words I, the, to. See if your child can spot any of these in their reading books! In Maths we have been learning about number order and we are getting really good at spotting missing numbers on a number line, using key words "before" "after" and "in between".


Thank you to everyone who attended our curriculum meeting on Wednesday. It was great to see so many of you there, and we hope the information was useful. If you have any further questions please ask one of the F2 team.
