F2 New Starter Information

We have been settling into Foundation really well, learning the routines and coming up with our own class rules!

We made friendship hands last week for Anti Bullying Week thinking of things we loved about our friends.

Please feel free and take a moment to come and have a look at our Parent Information Boards in the entrance/coat area of EYFS.

A Typical Day in Foundation 2

Children are encouraged to self-register and self-select their lunch choice every day. We strongly believe that developing independence is a life-long, key skill that is invaluable to the children.

Child Initiated Learning

Child Initiated Learning takes place as soon as the children come into school every morning. Children can independently choose what they want to do from the resources in the classroom. If the children are unsure what they want to play with there is always a range of supported activities/games/materials, usually linked to a story or the children’s interests (eg. dinosaurs, vehicles, fairy stories.) We are extremely fortunate to have a fantastic outside area which gives the children opportunities to develop their gross motor skills as well as scientific enquiry, problem solving and learning about the environment.  

Phonics

We follow the Read Write Inc programme to teach letter sounds and, when the children are ready, handwriting. These lessons will involve identifying, reading and eventually writing sounds (in words and in complex sentences).

Maths

In Maths we focus on a theme for the week e.g. 3D Shape.  The class is divided into differentiated groups and have a focus activity which is adult led. Problem solving is constantly embedded in all of our learning both in and out of the classroom so the children are meeting their full potential.

Other areas of learning

The children also take part in RE, Funky Friday and Welly Wednesdays (outdoor learning) every week.
