Foundation 2

Welcome to Foundation 2. Mrs Glass teaches F2 Jet and Mrs Allsopp and Mrs Dunning teach F2 Ruby. We are supported by the amazing Miss Amos, Mrs Armstrong and Mr Evans. As I'm sure you'll see we will have lots of fun and learn a great deal over the next year together!

The children need to have their PE kits in school every week. Please make sure that EVERYTHING is labelled!!!

Also please send your child to school with a labelled water bottle that we will send home every Friday. 

Mr McCardle covers PPA every week, with his fun music sessions. The children also have tennis sessions with Graham Woodhall for 3 half term sessions.

We watched our caterpillars grow and turn into cocoons. When they hatched we released them on the Foundation field

Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday celebrations

This term we will be learning all about minibeasts! We will be reading story books about them and Mrs Glass is looking forward to reading her childhood favourite (yes it's that old!!) The Very Hungry Caterpillar! We will be looking after Mrs Evan's African Land Snails and watching caterpillars grow, change into cocoons and finally hatch into beautiful butterflies.

Bookworm Challenge!


We would like to challenge the children in Foundation 2 to read 8 or more books during the Easter holiday! Every child completing the challenge will receive a certificate and small prize! Keep an eye on your child's book bag for further information. 

New summer topics!

We are excited to announce that we have altered our curriculum for the Summer Term!

We will be completing two new topics.

Why are carrots orange?

The children will be learning about where our food comes from, growing food and cooking some of the vegetables we buy. The children will begin this topic with two local trips to Bank's Greengrocers on Main Street and Sainsburys.

Why do ladybirds have spots?

The children will begin this topic to a mini beast hunt around school, we will then be learning all about different mini beasts.

We have a very busy term ahead! We will be learning all about transport, winter, Chinese New Year, Chicks and Easter! We will also be looking at the books by Allan and Janet Ahlberg and traditional tales. We will be working hard to blend, read and write sounds. In maths we will continue to do lots of work on number and shape.

We went for a walk on a cold and frosty morning! We looked at how our environment had changed now it is winter.
