Welcome to F2!
Show respect, Work together, Aspire, Nurture
A warm welcome to the Foundation 2 class page. For the foreseeable future F2 will be starting school at 8:45am and finishing at 3:15pm. An adult from the Foundation team will meet the children at the FSU gate onto the playground. We will then check their temperature using a thermometer to the wrist. When the children arrive in the school building, they will wash their hands and be provided with hand sanitizer. This will be repeated throughout the day.
Mrs Williams (class teacher) and Mrs Hopewell (teaching assistant).
Mrs Hopewell and Mrs Watts will cover PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) time on Tuesday morning. Mrs Lambert will teach PE on Thursday afternoon.
PE will be on Thursdays and the children are to come in school in their PE kit on this day. Lovers' Lane PE kit consists of: school jumper, plain navy/black/grey jogging trousers or shorts and a plain white/navy/black/grey T-shirt with trainers. PE will be done outside, weather permitting. We will review indoor PE sessions over the term, alongside government guidelines.
Your child will be given a book of their choice for you to share at home. They will change their book every Monday and we expect you to read with your child at least 4 times a week to support their communication and language development. Due to the current Covid pandemic books have to be put into quarantine when returned to school which is why we are now setting days to change them. More support on phonics and reading at home will come later in the term.
Learning and well-being
The main focus for the first half term is to help settle your child back into school after such a long period out of education. There will be many opportunities to share and discuss their lock-down experiences, worries and provide support with gaps in learning. Our topic this term is ‘Homes and Buildings’. We have lots of exciting learning planned across all subjects linked to this topic!
Due to the school following guidelines to ensure the safety of the whole school community, communication will be different to what we are used to with parents/carers. If you have any questions or need to pass on information please do not hesitate to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by using the form below, and I will get back to you at the nearest opportunity.
We have really enjoyed visiting our new classes this week, here are some of the
exciting things we have done! Come back next week to see even
more of the fun we have had.
