Welcome to Foundation 2!


We are all very excited for the beginning of a new academic year and we are sure that your child’s time with us will be a very happy one.


Our main focus this half term is to have all the children happy and settled in their new classrooms and routines, and enjoying eating their lunches at school. Children will get to know their new teachers and friends, and exploring their environment. After assessments have taken place, children will be having daily phonics and maths sessions.


A reading book will be given to your child each week. Please watch the video clip below which gives you more information and explains how to record a reading session with your child at home.


Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat and a pair of wellies (both labelled with your child’s name). These can be left on your child’s peg. 


We have now started PE so it is essential that your child comes to school on their designated PE day in their PE kit. Please remember the School follows a no-jewellery policy during PE sessions. Staff are not allowed to remove children’s jewellery so this needs to be removed before they come to school.


Thank you,

Mrs K Patel
