Foundation 2

Welcome to Foundation 2


Welcome to classes 1 and 2. Our team consists of Miss Sheppard (class 1 teacher), Miss Gill (class 1 TA), Miss Tyler (class 2 teacher) and Mrs Offord (class 2 TA). We love learning through play and spend our days being busy, active and often messy in our indoor and outdoor learning areas. Learning is planned around stories, chosen to engage and excite the children. Please check our website regularly to see the fun we have been having!

Computing fun

Week beginning 9.9.19


This week we had lots of fun with Mrs Burton. We built our own computers which helped us to learn all about the different features of a computer. Thanks so much to the parents who donated old boxes and resources to help us, we hope you were impressed with the results! We also had lots of fun getting changed for our first PE lessons! Lots of the children were super independent when getting changed, so well done! 

We look forward to seeing lots of you at the curriculum evening next Wednesday, 18th September.


Starting School

Week beginning 2.9.19


We have had a fantastic first week back at school. The children have been absolutely amazing. They have coped so well in adapting to new situations and challenges and getting to know lots of different people. The first two half days were really helpful in enabling the children to get to know the school environment in a calmer classroom. We had lots of fun exploring the school and meeting different members of staff. On Thursday we met Mr Smith and had a great PE lesson, and also met Mrs Burton who will be teaching us computing next Thursday. On Friday we also had fun learning some new songs with Miss Need. 


Many thanks to you all for supporting the children and ensuring that they have everything they need. Just a reminder that they all need their book bags in school each day, their water bottles filled with only water (no juice, squash or flavoured water), a coat as we do go outside in all weathers, and PE kits consisting of T shirt and shorts. PE will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays and any earrings must be removed. Please could you ensure that all clothing and equipment is clearly labelled with your child's name.


Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you all again next week.
