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.
