Children have been exploring the F2 area this week! We walked around each classroom and discussed rules for each area, inside and out. Children have followed these rules whilst exploring.

We have also introduced helicopter stories. Children really enjoyed telling their own stories and acting them out with their peers. We are going to be sending home our class mascots on Friday. Children will bring home their class mascot when they have been awarded ‘star of the week. Information will come home with the mascot.

We have had a wonderful start in Foundation 2! Children are settling in well. We are very proud of the positive start they are making and how well they are embracing School life. We have planned some circle time activities, introduced daily maths/phonics to gently introduce our behavioural expectations and routine. Thank you for all your support.

Children have had an amazing week this week! 

Children have been involved various activities, including; writing compliments, discussing what makes a good friend, focussing on aspects they like about their own friends, working together to make a class logo, writing/ drawing things they enjoy, and lots more!

Children have loved this week, and have really enjoyed the happiness activities planned e.g. drama groups, and martial art groups, sewing groups, fun games.

This week has been full of HAPPINESS!

During Foundation 2, the children will progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage which is accessed through both indoor and outdoor learning. We are extremely fortunate to have a brand new outdoor classroom, which the children can freely access throughout the day, both through adult led and child initiated activities. The children will learn the skills which will then be enhanced through play, exploration and investigation of the world around them.

Each area of learning and development must be implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and to communicate and socialise with others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. There is an ongoing judgement to be made by practitioners about the balance between activities led by children, and activities led or guided by adults. Practitioners must respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive and effective interaction. As children grow older, and as their development allows, it is expected that the balance will gradually shift towards more activities led by adults, to help children prepare for more formal learning, ready for Year 1.
