Welcome to Foundation 2
Our Team - The teachers are Mr Sloss, Mrs Wilson and Miss Blakeley. The support staff are Mrs Roach, Mrs Drew
Our new topic is ‘Traditional Tales’. We will be learning about a range of traditional tales, comparing characters, settings and structure. We will be encouraging role play around this theme and linking it to aspects such as cooking, healthy eating and spring. We will be investigating the morals and values within the stories and relating our everyday experiences to these.
In Maths we are learning about money, time, doubling, halving and repeating patterns.
Our daily phonics sessions will also be continuing, with children working on phase 2 &3 sounds and words.
We also looking forward to taking part in various cultural calendar events including Chinese New Year, Pancake day, World Book Day, St David’s day, Mother’s Day and Easter.
Very best wishes,
The children follow a broad and balanced curriculum, our aim being to achieve continuity and progression through the school with equal opportunities to apply knowledge and skills in a meaningful context both within the classroom and when accessing the excellent outdoor environments.

In Foundation 2 children cover Phase 2 activities when they begin school. All of the children from both classes are put into different groups, according to their phonics knowledge.
They then move through the Letters and Sounds phases at a pace that matches their needs. For additional information and links to external websites that you may find useful please click here.
The children have many activities available in the indoor and outdoor areas which help them learn, support, enjoy, explore and challenge their mathematical understanding.
The environments aim to be ‘number rich’ so that children appreciate that numbers are all around them. For more information about numeracy in Foundation 2 please click here.
