Welcome to F2!

 

Team SWAN

Show respect, Work together, Aspire, Nurture

Hello everybody! 

I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed we all are that our last week in Foundation

is to be spent completing Home Learning again. We had so many lovely

activities planned and were so looking forward to a last week of fun and laughter.

That said, we have to keep everybody safe and with that in mind, if your child shows any

symptoms we would encourage you to carry out a lateral flow test or pcr test and

inform school of any positive test results. Both myself and Mrs Hopewell thank you so much for all of your support over the last (very unusual!) year and we hope you have

wonderful and relaxing summer break.

 

As always, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email if you need any support

during our last few days of term

 

From Mrs Williams and Mrs Hopewell ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have had a fantastic few weeks in F2, the children have been enjoying our new

topic of Superheroes and we have now started to look at people who are 'real life' superheroes such as Police Officers and Firefighters. We are still making full use of

our outdoor area and go outside whatever the weather. With this in mind,

even on warmer days, the children still need to bring a coat and to be wearing

sensible school shoes. As always, please make sure all your child's

belongings are named. Please also make sure your child is bringing their

book bag each day, along with their reading diary.

 

Thank you for all your support,

Mrs Williams and Mrs Hopewell

 

We have had great fun exploring the world of Superheroes over the past few weeks. We have made superhero hand print artwork, designed our own superhero vehicles, read

new stories such as Supertato and Superworm and also dressed up as

 superheroes ourselves in the Superhero Headquarters role play!

Into.....Parties and Celebrations

Our topic this half term across Foundation is 'Parties and Celebrations.' So far we have looked at Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance Day and now we will look at Christmas for the remaining few weeks. The children have been exploring non-fiction books in class about celebrations such as Holi, Ramadan and birthday parties!

Mrs Hopewell made some wonderful Diya pots with the children and we had lots of fun at our Bonfire Night carousel, making edible sparklers, cooking hotdogs outside and painting pumpkins with our student Miss Hall. Over the next few weeks we will be watching a virtual pantomime of Cinderella, singing carols, making top-secret Christmas things and, the highlight, having our Foundation Christmas party!

 

Here are some photo's of this term so far.....

F2 Class Info

 

Staff

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

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.

 

Reading

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.
