We ensure that our Foundation Unit promotes the Characteristics of Learning:
Playing and Exploring
Creating and Thinking Critically
In the Foundation Stage we learn through play. We access all the 7 areas of learning:
Personal, Emotional and Social Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Throughout their year in F2 we assess the children against Development Matters. At the end of their year in F2 we assess the children against the 7 Early Learning Goals, where they will be either Emerging, Expected or Exceeding.
Topic’s we will be covering in F2 this year.

Our PE day is on a Monday. Your child has been provided with a school PE bag with labelled shorts and a T shirt. This is to be kept in school during term time and will be returned home during the holidays to be washed. Please ensure your child brings named PE pumps into school to put in their PE bag.
Homework will be given out each Friday and will need to be returned by Wednesday at the latest. We have a homework chart in school to monitor completion of homework. You can support your child with their homework but your child is to complete the activity themselves.
Please ensure homework books are kept in good condition.
