Welcome to Caterpillar Class!
Our teacher is Miss Knowles. We also work with Mrs Brewster, Mrs Anstey and Mrs Starbuck. On a Friday morning, Miss Kirkby joins in the fun!
We work from 8:50am until 3:20pm. All of Foundation 2 play and learn within a large, purpose-built unit. We have our own playground, climbing frame and field to explore too! We love to get stuck in; you might find us cooking vegetable soup, planting golden daffodils or creating 'WANTED' posters for some missing 2D shapes!
We endeavour to create a safe, stimulating learning environment that encourages all of our children to be the best that they can be. Please do not hesitate to contact any of the Foundation 2 team if you have any questions or worries.
What are we learning in Foundation 2?
Autumn 1: 'All About Me'
In the first term, we are focusing on ourselves, our families and our pets. We will be painting self portraits, building model houses and learning how to look after different pets. The children will also build lots of friendships and learn our 'Take Care' school rules.
Autumn 2: 'Colour, Pattern and Celebrations!'
Our second term at school is very exciting! We will be learning and celebrating lots of festivals around the world, such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas! We will also explore Autumn as a season, collecting lots of natural resources on an 'Autumn Walk' to create our own art.
Spring 1: 'Fairy Tales'
This half term, we will be reading lots of our favourite fairytales, including 'The Gingerbead Man', 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'The Three Little Pigs'. We'll be preparing for our own, very special teddy bears picnic - we cannot wait to meet all of your favourite teddies from home!
Spring 2: 'Growing'
One of our favourite topics! This half term, we will explore the season of Spring and growing. We will share lots of non-fiction texts about plants and observe our own flower seeds grow!
Summer 1: 'Mini-beasts'
This half term, our focus is creatures and insects that live in our World. We will spend lots of time outdoors, finding and carefully observing how they move, eat and live!
Summer 2: 'Under the Sea'
In our final term of Foundation 2, we will explore oceans and the creatures of the deep!
